Few people are looking for a fight with the Internal Revenue Service. But if you do happen to have problems with the agency this tax season — or anytime — there’s a Web site you can visit for help.
The IRS has placed all taxpayer rights information in one Internet location. Its Taxpayer Rights Corner consolidates data that previously was scattered throughout the agency’s main Web site.
Created as a “one-stop taxpayer shop,” the site was created by the reorganized agency to meet congressional orders that taxpayers receive better treatment. Web topics range from basic taxpayer information to details on IRS examination and collection procedures to a how-to on getting help from the IRS.
The site also has sections on the agency’s Taxpayer Advocate Service, innocent spouse tax concerns, confidentiality issues and taxpayer legal representation rights.
