Taxpayer Rights: To What End (Part 1)


Partner Peter Faber was a panelist at the 2018 ABA Section of Taxation May Meeting.

In 2014, IRS adopted a taxpayer bill of rights and in 2015 Congress codified those rights by requiring that the Commissioner ensure that IRS employees are familiar with and act in accord with those rights.
