United States Tax Court Defined

The United States Tax Court is a specialty court that exclusively hears tax law cases. The US Tax Court hears tax deficiency cases - cases in which the IRS asserts that the taxpayer has underpaid his or her tax liability. Prepayment of the proposed tax deficiency is not a prerequisite to litigating in Tax Court.
