Audit Problems?

We can help.

Welcome To The Administrative Appeals Office

Our mission is to help people resolve audit disputes with the Department of Taxation (DOTAX) quickly, fairly, and without litigation.

Who We Are

The Administrative Appeals Office is a separate and independent body within DOTAX that is responsible for administering the Administrative Appeals And Dispute Resolution (AADR) program.

How We Can Help

If you were audited and disagree with the assessment, you may file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office. 


Taxpayers and return preparers now have a quicker way to resolve tax disputes involving audit assessments…
