TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS

No longer does the IRS have all the advantages in dealing with taxpayers. It took a long time, but your rights as a taxpayer were dramatically enhanced with the enactment of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. The Taxpayer Bill of Rights is extensive, but a partial list includes the following:

1. The IRS must preserve your personal and financial confidentiality.

2. The IRS must treat you in a professional and courteous manner.

3. The IRS must provide clear explanations in all IRS tax notices and written inquiries. Many notices must include a non-technical statement about your rights as a taxpayer, especially with respect to audits, collection actions, and tax appeals procedures.

4. The IRS must collect taxes fairly.
