You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not appealable, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This Section shall survive expiration, termination or rescission of this Agreement.

You are responsible for any expenses related to obtaining these documents.

Sign the Amendment. The IRS requires that amendments, like tax returns, are signed by the taxpayer and, if filing a joint return, both the taxpayer and the spouse. Mail the amendment to the IRS.

Likewise, FileYourTaxes.com will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not appealable, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
