Do You Know Your Rights?

Many taxpayers are not aware of their rights when it comes to dealing with the IRS. They assume that their only option is to accept whatever the IRS says at face value. Here are a few things to remember when dealing with the IRS.

•1. You have the right to be informed. The IRS cannot just tell you that you owe money and not give you any information as to how to resolve it. The IRS must equip you with understandable explanations so that you are well informed as to IRS procedures and possible outcomes.

•2. As a taxpayer you also have the right to receive professional assistance when dealing with the IRS. This means the IRS must remain polite and courteous when communicating with taxpayers. The IRS must also relay information to taxpayers in a clear and professional manner. If they fail to do so, you as a taxpayer may request to speak with a supervisor regarding your poor service.

•3. If you do not agree with the IRS, you have the right the challenge the IRS. You cannot just say you do not agree, you have to do a little more than that. Taxpayers must provide additional information to substantiate their positions. You have the right to have your objections heard.

These are just a few rights you have as taxpayers. For more information about the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, please visit www.irs.gov.
