There are some instances where a taxpayer isn't eligible for audit reconsideration. If you’ve already paid the taxes due in full, you need to file an amended return or a claim for refund. Certain payment agreements and Offers in Compromise eliminate your option of audit reconsideration. Finally, if the U. S. Tax Court or other court of competent jurisdiction has made a final determination, audit reconsideration is off the table.
