Students taxes Your local Taxpayer Advocate can offer you special help if you have a significant hardship as a result of a tax problem.

Students taxes   We accept most taxpayers' returns as filed. Students taxes If we inquire about your return or select it for examination, it does not suggest that you are dishonest. Students taxes The inquiry or examination may or may not result in more tax. Students taxes We may close your case without change; or, you may receive a refund. Students taxes   The process of selecting a return for examination usually begins in one of two ways. Students taxes First, we use computer programs to identify returns that may have incorrect amounts. Students taxes These programs may be based on information returns, such as Forms 1099 and W-2, on studies of past examinations, or on certain issues identified by compliance projects. Students taxes Second, we use information from outside sources that indicates that a return may have incorrect amounts. Students taxes These sources may include newspapers, public records, and individuals. Students taxes If we determine that the information is accurate and reliable, we may use it to select a return for examination. Students taxes   Publication 556, Examination of Returns, Appeal Rights, and Claims for Refund, explains the rules and procedures that we follow in examinations. Students taxes The following sections give an overview of how we conduct examinations. Students taxes By mail. Students taxes   We handle many examinations and inquiries by mail. Students taxes We will send you a letter with either a request for more information or a reason why we believe a change to your return may be needed. Students taxes You can respond by mail or you can request a personal interview with an examiner. Students taxes If you mail us the requested information or provide an explanation, we may or may not agree with you, and we will explain the reasons for any changes. Students taxes Please do not hesitate to write to us about anything you do not understand. Students taxes By interview. Students taxes   If we notify you that we will conduct your examination through a personal interview, or you request such an interview, you have the right to ask that the examination take place at a reasonable time and place that is convenient for both you and the IRS. Students taxes If our examiner proposes any changes to your return, he or she will explain the reasons for the changes. Students taxes If you do not agree with these changes, you can meet with the examiner's supervisor. Students taxes Repeat examinations. Students taxes   If we examined your return for the same items in either of the 2 previous years and proposed no change to your tax liability, please contact us as soon as possible so we can see if we should discontinue the examination. Students taxes Appeals. Students taxes   If you do not agree with the examiner's proposed changes, you can appeal them to the Appeals Office of the IRS. Students taxes Most differences can be settled without expensive and time-consuming court trials. Students taxes Your appeal rights are explained in detail in both Publication 5, Your Appeal Rights and How To Prepare a Protest If You Don't Agree, and Publication 556, Examination of Returns, Appeal Rights, and Claims for Refund. Students taxes   If you do not wish to use the Appeals Office or disagree with its findings, you may be able to take your case to the U. Students taxes S. Students taxes Tax Court, U. Students taxes S. Students taxes Court of Federal Claims, or the U. Students taxes S. Students taxes District Court where you live. Students taxes If you take your case to court, the IRS will have the burden of proving certain facts if you kept adequate records to show your tax liability, cooperated with the IRS, and meet certain other conditions. Students taxes If the court agrees with you on most issues in your case and finds that our position was largely unjustified, you may be able to recover some of your administrative and litigation costs. Students taxes You will not be eligible to recover these costs unless you tried to resolve your case administratively, including going through the appeals system, and you gave us the information necessary to resolve the case. Students taxes Collections. Students taxes   Publication 594, The IRS Collection Process, explains your rights and responsibilities regarding payment of federal taxes. Students taxes It describes: What to do when you owe taxes. Students taxes It describes what to do if you get a tax bill and what to do if you think your bill is wrong.

Students taxes   Your collection appeal rights are explained in detail in Publication 1660, Collection Appeal Rights. Students taxes Innocent spouse relief. Students taxes   Generally, both you and your spouse are responsible, jointly and individually, for paying the full amount of any tax, interest, or penalties due on your joint return. Students taxes To seek relief from any liability related to your spouse (or former spouse), you must file a claim on Form 8857, Request for Innocent Spouse Relief.
