Nina Olson on the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (Tax Notes Live)
National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson was interviewed by Tax Analysts reporter Bill Hoffman for Tax Notes Live, a weekly show highlighting news in tax.
NTA Nina Olson discussed the IRS’s adoption of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights and TAS’s effort to raise awareness among taxpayers through local outreach activities. She shared plans for a follow up taxpayer rights survey this coming year that will help measure if TAS and the IRS have made advances in educating taxpayers about their rights when dealing with the IRS.
She also discussed her hopes for the inaugural International Conference on Taxpayer Rights held at the National Archives in Washington, DC – that it would start a dialog about taxpayer rights among the more than 20 countries represented at the conference.
