Your Rights As a Taxpayer


Your Rights As a Taxpayer

IRS Publication 1, Your Rights as a Taxpayer is a must read if you have fallen behind with your federal taxes.  It is a quick two pages, but contains some great information and answers some common questions such as:

Will the IRS think I'm guilty if I hire a professional to represent me?

IRS Pub 1, #9 states that "Taxpayers have the right to retain an authorized representative of their choice". 

So if you are too anxious to talk to the IRS yourself, hiring a qualified representative to do it for you won't send up any red flags.

What happens if I think the IRS is wrong?

IRS Pub 1, #5 states that taxpayers have "The right to Appeal an IRS decision in an independent forum."

This includes many penalties that the IRS charges.

Page two of IRS Pub 1 briefly covers many topics on Examinations, Appeals, Collections and Refunds.  Take a couple of minutes to read it.  It may answer a few of your questions and ease some of your anxiety.
