- have your return examined in a manner reasonably convenient to you.
- a written explanation of the audit, hearing or collection process.
- represent yourself or have someone represent you when your return is examined.
- know which records you will need to verify your return or support your claim prior to any audit or collection meeting.
- know the reasons for any proposed change in your tax liability and to receive an explanation of anything you do not understand.
- receive a written notice detailing any adjustments made to your return and stating any balance due or additional refund developed.
