In May 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released a report indicating the IRS may have used inappropriate criteria to target some conservative political groups. While the alleged scandal targeted political groups around the country, and not individual taxpayers in Oklahoma, there are important lessons for individual taxpayers to take away from the news.
3 Things We Think You Should Know
As you read the news about the alleged IRS scandal and you consider your own interaction with the IRS, it is important to remember that:
- The IRS not perfect. The individuals working for the IRS may make mistakes.
- The IRS is powerful and can create trouble for businesses, nonprofits, and individuals. Accordingly, it is important to take any IRS notices seriously.
- You might need help if you have a federal tax problem. You have the right to consult an Oklahoma tax lawyer and to protect your rights if the IRS has alleged that you have an outstanding tax issue.
It is also important to remember that the IRS allegations do not determine the final outcome of your tax dispute. You have the right to plead your case.
