The rights you have as a taxpayer

It is intimidating for any Michigan taxpayer to have to deal with the IRS. However, not many people know that the IRS adopted a taxpayer bill of rights.

While it seems fair that taxpayers have certain rights, the tremendous power of the IRS to enforce tax laws can prove intimidating for taxpayers facing IRS scrutiny. The IRS can punish taxpayers through the use of audits, liens, and wage garnishments. In some instances taxpayers may even face criminal penalties and jail time.

What these taxpayer rights include

There are ten items within this taxpayer bill of rights that are applicable to all taxpayers. Some seem like commonsense. For example, the IRS needs to inform taxpayers regarding what steps to take to be in compliance with tax laws. Taxpayers also have a right to receive quality services when it comes to tax advice and preparation.

However, taxpayers also have the right to only have to pay the correct amount of tax, and not have to pay one cent more. Taxpayers also have a right to challenge the IRS on rulings. This includes the right to raise objections and receive a formal response from the IRS.

In many instances, taxpayers can appeal adverse rulings. Taxpayers also have the right to know the time period needed to challenge any positions taken by the IRS.

The IRS needs to respect the rights to due process for taxpayers. Taxpayers also have rights concerning privacy and confidentiality.

Most importantly, taxpayers have the right to have an experienced tax attorney at their side during any proceedings. And they have a right to expect the tax system to be just.
