When trying to get taxes, interest, or penalties compromised with the Florida Department of Revenue, it is good to know just how much authority the person you are speaking with has. The document below gives you the "cheat sheet" for how much authority each position has within the FL DOR, effective December 11, 2013.

For example, the Assistant General Counsel has the authority to compromise up to $62,500 of tax, $62,500 of interest, and up to $250,000 of penalty in a protest. However, a Tax Law Specialist may only compromise up to $12,500 of tax, $12,500 of interest, and up to $75,000 of penalty in a protest. Knowing what level you need to be speaking with will help you save you (or your client) time and money.


If you or your client has a large Florida tax assessment and want to discuss your situation with a firm that almost exclusively deals with Florida Department Revenue tax controversy, then please take advantage of our free initial consultation. We would be glad to discuss your situaiton.
