Which Courts May Litigation Dealing With Tax Matters Begin?
Income tax litigation begins in one of three trial courts:
- U.S. Tax Court; only hears only federal tax cases
- U.S. District Courts; are the only tax trial court where a jury trial can be requested by a taxpayer
- U.S. Court of Federal Claims; taxpayers must pay the disputed amount prior to litigation
