Know Your Taxpayer Rights!

Taxpayer Rights. Do you know yours? In 2014, the IRS adopted a Taxpayer Bill of Rights as proposed by the former National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson. We are used to talking about rights in relation to civil and criminal law, but not that much when it comes to tax law. However, as taxpayers, we have rights and responsibilities. The Taxpayer Bill of Rights applies to all taxpayers in their dealings with the IRS. It groups the existing rights in the tax code into ten fundamental rights and makes them clear, understandable, and accessible. These rights are the following:

  • The Right to Be Informed
  • The Right to Quality Service
  • The Right to Pay No More than the Correct Amount of Tax
  • The Right to Challenge the IRS’s Position and Be Heard
  • The Right to Appeal an IRS Decision in an Independent Forum
  • The Right to Finality
  • The Right to Privacy
  • The Right to Confidentiality
  • The Right to Retain Representation
  • The Right to a Fair and Just Tax System
