Josh, 90% get settled either because the client has the documentation and can get it resolved in their favor or they don’t and realize it is not worth spending tens of thousands of dollars to battle over. I also believe a large percentage is from clients who simply do not have the funds to litigate the matter, or the numbers and adjustments do not justify the expense. I would tell the client you can appeal but their chance of success rests on what the adjustments are and whether they are justified or not. If the client took bad deductions or cannot substantiate what they claimed there is a better than good shot they will lose at appeals too.
