This bill would require the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to ensure that IRS employees are familiar with, and act in ways that uphold the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. The bill does not, however, specify how the IRS should make their employees familiar with the rights.
The Taxpayer Bill of Rights, as articulated by the IRS’s Taxpayer Advocate, include the rights:
To be informed;
To quality service;
To challenge the IRS’s position and be heard;
To pay no more than the correct amount of taxes;
To appeal IRS decisions in an independent forum;
To a speedy audit, and the right to know when an audit is finished (i.e. finality);
To privacy and confidentiality;
To retain representation;
To a fair and just tax system.
