Understanding Your Taxpayer Bill of Rights

The Taxpayer Bill of Rights give every taxpayer a set of fundamental rights they should know when dealing with IRS.

Your Bill of Rights codifies existing rights. They make them clear, more understandable, & available to all taxpayers.

The IRS has adopted these 10 Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

They are entitled to clear explanations of the law and IRS procedures in all tax forms, instructions, publications, notices, and correspondence.
