Taxes can be overwhelming, but they are our social obligation. Our taxes fund several programs that benefit the community as a whole, including infrastructure, roads, schools, and more.
- Right to Information
The IRS is obliged to disclose its processes, procedures, and decisions that may affect taxpayers. You have the right to know what to do to comply with the law.
- Right to Privacy and Confidentiality
Unless you authorize it, the IRS shall keep your information in full confidentiality. You may also request a due process hearing should any breach of privacy or tax problems arise.
- Right to Appeal the IRS’s Decisions
In an independent forum, taxpayers have the right to be heard and raise objections to the IRS’s actions. Also, you have the right to take things to court as needed.
- Right to Quality Service
Taxpayers should expect professional, polite, and prompt services from the IRS. Should you need to report poor assistance, you have the right to speak to a supervisor.
- Right to Finality
As a taxpayer, you have the right to be informed of the leeway given to challenge the IRS’s decisions or when the agency needs to audit your account.
