Know Your Rights as a TaxpayerMarch 2, 2015
Internal Revenue Service audit. Those words would strike fear into the heart of any taxpayer, but did you know that the IRS has adopted a Taxpayer Bill of Rights that spells out the rules protecting people and businesses in any dealings with the Service? The 10 provisions include the right to challenge a position and be heard, to appeal an IRS decision in an independent forum and to pay no more than the correct amount of tax.
You also have the right to retain representation. Remember that we can represent you before the IRS any time you need help sorting through a tax-related problem. Not only can we help you navigate complicated tax rules—and ensure that you’re complying with them—we can also accompany you to meetings with IRS representatives or contact them directly to sort through any issues. Be sure to contact us with all your tax questions and concerns.
