The IRS is issuing a series of brief articles alerting and explaining the rights that U. S. Taxpayers have under the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. The first bill of rights was adopted by Congress in 1988 and supplemented in 1996. Many taxpayers would be surprised to learn that they have any rights before the IRS. Here is an excellent opportunity to learn about them.
