Tax Court Cases

I did a retrospective study of my own tax court cases in April of 2018.  In 92% of cases, I was successful in reducing the tax bill; the median reduction was $7216.  This is only for cases which were decided on the merits; it doesn't include cases where the client withdrew or the case was transferred or consolidated.

Of course, most cases don't even require going to tax court; most of them get resolved within the IRS.  This list only represents about 10% of the tax disputes I've handled, but it nonetheless gives an idea of what to expect.  As you can see, tax disputes usually end in some kind of settlement.
