  • Be treated courteously and with respect by IRS representatives
  • Receive explanations of the rationale for requesting information, how it will be used and what the ramifications of not providing it are
  • Privacy and confidentiality
  • Represent yourself or appoint an authorized representative, and
  • Appeal findings that you don't think are warranted, either through the IRS itself or the court system.
