Taxpayer Rights - Do you Know Yours?

Do you know your rights as a taxpayer? Whether you file a Form 1040EZ or a complicated corporate return, you will benefit from knowing your rights as a taxpayer and being familiar with the IRS' obligations to protect them. The IRS had an area on its site that covers a wide range of topics from basic taxpayer information to details on IRS examination and collection procedures to getting assistance from the IRS.

Some of the highlighted taxpayer links include:

  • Taxpayer Advocate Service
  • IRS Notices
  • Your Right to Representation
  • Appeal Rights

The IRS has placed all taxpayer rights information in one convenient location. Visit the Taxpayer Rights Corner for more information and resources.
