Many Taxpayers do not think they have rights with the IRS and many of those who do are unsure as to what those rights are.
The IRS does have a Taxpayer Bill of Rights. The IRS has publicized was 10 fundamental rights every taxpayer has.
The are as follows:
- 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.
The IRS has also established the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) which according to them is “your voice at the IRS”. Their job is to make sure that a taxpayer is treated fairly and that they understand their rights.
A taxpayer can also hire a tax professional or representative so they do not have to deal with the IRS. An experienced tax professional will not only ensure that a taxpayer right are enforce but that the taxpayer’s issue can be resolved at the best possible tax resolution using the tax laws to their advantage.
“We got behind on our taxes and ended up owing the IRS over $20,000. We felt the financial pressure of having this debt and didn’t see any way we would be able to pay them in a timely manner. We consulted with CKTax and found we qualified for an Offer In Compromise. They took care of everything. We never had to talk with the IRS once. The IRS settled our debt of over $20,000 for $500!!”Ben & Crystal Fleming

“I found CKTax online. Cynthia counseled me in what to do, how to do it, and worked with the IRS to put holds on the penalties and interest. She negotiated me time to gather my reporting data so the IRS could not use liens or other measures. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of service and the attentiveness to my needs. My delinquent tax returns were completed quickly and very efficiently.”Sandra Jarnagin

“I am extremely pleased with the service and professionalism from CKTax. They helped me negotiate a $30,000 tax debt from three years of back taxes to a reasonable amount of $4,000. She dealt with the pushy IRS agents, so I didn’t have to lose my peace of mind knowing she had it under control. She was polite and answered all the questions I had about what was going on.”Caleb Shallert
