IRS Settlement Officer abused her discretion in a Collection Due Process Hearing, Tax Court Says
The United States Tax Court held that an IRS settlement officer deprived an individual of a fair collection due process hearing under sections 6330 and 6320 and found that the settlement officer acted arbitrarily and capriciously in deciding to proceed with a collection action; the court remanded the case to Appeals for a new Collection Due Process Hearing..
