Is It Time for a Taxpayer Bill of Rights? Tax Analysts Conference: March 27

Tax Analysts is hosting a conference on March 27 in Washington DC that is of broad interest. The schedule includes National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson, as well as Christopher S. Rizek of Caplin & Drysdale and former Treasury Deputy and Acting Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy Alan J. Wilensky.

Chris Bergin of Tax Analysts & Forbes will be hosting and he has a number of articles on the problems of taxpayer rights and IRS accountability that should be read by everyone who cares about tax policy. Here are just a few:

It should be noted that, of course, the IRS already does have a declaration of taxpayer rights. However, it is declaratory and not legal in nature, so apparently has no legal effect (though as far as I know, this has not been tested through litigation). The taxpayer advocate has been calling a legislated version for a long time, as I discuss here
