Nick Nemeth, a well known tax attorney in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, has published an article which outlines some of the most important rights that taxpayers have when they are in contact with IRS employees and revenue officers. Since the Internal Revenue Service agents will not always be up front and make taxpayers aware of their rights from the start it is up to the individual taxpayer to know what rights they have and ensure that these rights are respected. Some agency employees hope that the taxpayer does not realize that they have rights in order to gain an unfair advantage. Nick Nemeth warns taxpayers not to let this happen to them, and explains some of the most important rights that a taxpayer should know.
In the recent article tax attorney Nick Nemeth discusses the right that every taxpayer has, and what the IRS can and can not do when they are dealing with a taxpayer. Internal Revenue Service employees and agents are not allowed to disclose any information about a taxpayer account, or to make any of these details public knowledge. The agency also has to intrude as little as possible on the life and privacy of the taxpayer, and to make sure that the taxpayer stays informed about the current status of their account and any IRS actions.
Nick Nemeth also explains about the right that taxpayers have to expect quality service and a professional experience whenever a taxpayer has to deal with the Internal Revenue Service in his latest publication. IRS agents can be aggressive at times, and often these agents do not care about the taxpayer or their current circumstances. Each taxpayer has the right to receive professional, prompt, and courteous service from employees at the tax agency. Another right is to be treated in a manner that is fair, impartial, just, and non discriminatory. If any of these rights are violated there are penalties that may be assessed.
Taxpayers may also not know that they have the right to disagree and to file an appeal of any decision made by the IRS. This administrative appeal must be held in front of an independent forum, and the taxpayer has the right to challenge the position that the IRS takes and to have the forum hear this challenge. Every taxpayer must be treated the same, and the IRS must look at the situation of each taxpayer when determining whether a payment plan or other payment method may be allowed.
The Law Office of Nick Nemeth has seen cases of IRS agents abusing the rights of taxpayers . Well informed taxpayers who understand their rights can not be taken advantage of and this forces the Internal Revenue Service to treat the taxpayer with the respect and professionalism that every American deserves. Taxpayers have many rights, these are always in force and can not be disregarded by IRS agents. However, the taxpayer must insist on these rights in order to have them respected in some cases.
