Taxpayer Bill of Rights

While taxpayers have always had rights that could be found within the tax code, the IRS thinks it's time to shine a light on them.  They will begin posting the taxpayer bill of rights on their public buildings, linked to the front page of their website, and included in taxpayer correspondence.

Taxpayer Bill of Rights

  • The right to be informed
  • The right to quality service
  • The right to pay no more than the correct amount of tax
  • The right to challenge the IRS's position and be heard
  • The right to appeal an IRS decision in an independent forum
  • The right to finality
  • The right to privacy
  • The right to confidentiality
  • The right to retain representation
  • The right to a fair and just tax system


If you have questions or feel like your rights aren't being upheld, the IRS is encouraging the taxpayers to contact them directly, or they are more than happy to work with a taxpayer and their representative.
