Tax Court Success Rate

I keep track of my success rate in Tax Court so that clients have an idea of what to expect.   These are the results of petitions filed after receiving a notice of deficiency.

Average reduction per case (dollar amount):  $58,856

Average reduction per case (percentage):  76%

Cases which saw some reduction (percentage):  95%

This table of course only represents one type of dispute; it doesn't include state or local cases, or case which were resolved with the IRS without the need to file a petition.  (which is most of them)  It also doesn't include cases where clients withdrew or otherwise canceled services.  Nonetheless, it gives a general idea of what to expect.
