What are my options to resolve issues after my audit?

Informal Conference Board

You may request that the ICB conduct an informal review within 60 days (30 days for IFTA) of the issuance of a

·         Notice of Proposed Deficiency,

·         Notice of Proposed Liability,

·         Notice of Proposed Claim Denial, or

·         Notice of Proposed Liability and Claim Denial

The purpose of the ICB is to review adjustments proposed by IDOR's Audit Bureau before a notice is issued. The ICB process allows you the opportunity to resolve disagreements after a liability has been proposed but before the formal protest and administrative hearing or tax tribunal process. Use Form ICB-1, Request for Informal Conference Board Review, to file your request for review. For more information regarding how to submit a request, see PIO-58, Informal Conference Board Review.

Note:  You waive your right to seek review by the ICB if you

·         sign Form IL-870, Waiver of Restrictions.

·         sign any audit report issued to you as a result of a proposed liability, deficiency, or claim denial.

 A review by the ICB does not prevent you from pursuing your formal appeal rights.

Audit Fast Track Resolution (FTR)

 

Audit Fast Track Resolution (FTR) is an IDOR program that provides a forum for the prompt resolution of disputed audit issues while the case is still under the jurisdiction of IDOR's Audit Bureau. Alternately, certain businesses that are under audit for sales and use taxes may also request review by the FTR Program prior to a proposed assessment or claim denial being issued. FTR is an IDOR program that provides a forum for the prompt resolution of disputed audit issues while the case is still under the jurisdiction of IDOR's Audit Bureau. An FTR conference is overseen by an FTR facilitator and allows you the option to mediate or settle audit issues prior to the issuance of the Notice of Proposed Liability. An FTR conference is not a right and is granted at the discretion of IDOR. If a resolution cannot be reached between you and IDOR through the FTR conference, you will still retain the protest rights afforded to you in Illinois statutes.
