Understanding Taxpayers Rights

As a taxpayer, you will benefit from knowing your rights when it comes to filing taxes and the IRS. Taxpayers rights are explained in the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. To help taxpayers understand their rights under the IRS tax laws, the IRS has put out a video to help you.

“I’m pleased that we now have a Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which lays out in plain language 10 fundamental rights included in our tax code,” Koskinen tells viewers in the video.

These rights include the right to:

  • be informed,
  • quality service,
  • pay no more than the correct amount of tax,
  • challenge the IRS’s position and be heard,
  • appeal an IRS decision in an independent forum,
  • finality,
  • privacy,
  • confidentiality,
  • retain representation and
  • a fair and just tax system.
The IRS Commissioner stressed that these are important rights for us to understand, and they are also important to the IRS.

The video is part of a longer-term effort by the IRS to help provide information to taxpayers about their rights.
