The Taxpayer Bill of Rights was recently released by the IRS. It organizes the rights of taxpayers, which are spread throughout the Tax Code, into 10 easy to find and read categories. The IRS reference sheet to taxpayer rights was created by the IRS as the result of focus groups and an effort to make the information more accessible. Within the 10 groupings, rights include finality, privacy, confidentiality, and more.
