Know Your Legal Rights
You have the legal right to be represented by an Attorney, CPA or EA when dealing with the IRS.
Be sure to consult with one before you say something to the IRS that you may regret.
Remember, IRS employees are paid to look out for the government’s interest, not for yours.
You have the legal right to stop any questioning by the IRS and ask for time to obtain representation.
Be sure to make copies of any documentation you provide to the IRS.
You have the legal right to appeal most IRS actions. Get professional advice before you sign any IRS documents.
You may wish to consult your lawyer or another lawyer instead of me (us). You may obtain information about other lawyers by consulting directories, seeking the advice of others, or by calling the South Carolina Bar Lawyer Referral Service at 799-7100 in Columbia or toll-free 1-800-868-2284. If you already have engaged a lawyer in connection with the legal matter referred to in this communication, you should direct any questions you have to that lawyer.
The exact nature of your legal situation will depend on many facts not known to me (us) at this time. You should understand that the advice and information in this communication are general and that your own situation may vary.
