Taxpayers have the right to challenge the IRS’s position and be heard. This is part of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which clearly outlines the fundamental rights every taxpayer has when working with the IRS.
Taxpayers have the right to:
- Raise objections.
- Provide additional documentation in response to formal or proposed IRS actions.
- Expect the IRS to consider their timely objections.
- Have the IRS consider any supporting documentation promptly and fairly.
- Receive a response if the IRS does not agree with their position.
