A CPA in Tampa Helps You Understand Your Taxpayer Rights

Tampa CPARegardless of someone’s political leanings, the Internal Revenue Service usually is seen in an adversarial light. This is understandable, considering that very few people actually enjoy paying taxes, and considering that the IRS exists solely to ensure the proper, legal collection of tax money. However, the IRS ultimately is beholden to the America’s taxpayers, which means the organization is, in fact, obligated to respect the rights of anyone who is required to pay taxes. It’s an obligation the IRS takes very seriously, something that is reflected in the official IRS mission statement: “Provide America’s taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.”
