U.S. Tax Court Warning about Tax Scams:
The U.S. Tax Court has issued a warning about tax scams concerning unsolicited phone calls, emails, or other communications from individuals fraudulently claiming to be from the Tax Court, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or other Federal government agencies and making demands such as for your appearance or immediate payment by money order, gift card, debit card, or other means to settle a tax debt. Please do not click links in any unsolicited messages purporting to be from one of these entities. See the warning.
The Tax Court has issued a press release announcing the date and time of the 2018 written exam for admission to practice for applicants other than attorneys at law. See the Press Release.
Electronic filing (eFiling) is mandatory for most parties represented by counsel (practitioners). Further, all practitioners who have registered for Practitioner Access will generally receive only electronic service from the Court. Practitioners agree to log on regularly to Practitioner Access to view served documents. The Court will not monitor emails that bounce back to the Court and generally will not provide paper service to registered practitioners. Initial filings, such as the petition, may be filed only in paper form. See Rule 26(b)and Practitioners' Guide to Electronic Case Access and Filing. eFiling is available, but not required, for self-represented petitioners (taxpayers) through Petitioner Access.
The Tax Court now offers the option of paying for court fees, with the exception of Petition Fees, Admission to Practice Application Fees and Notice of Appeal Fees, by credit card or ACH debit card through Pay.gov.
Pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 7463(b), Summary opinions may not be treated as precedent for any other case.
