Thanksgiving wishes from the National Taxpayer Advocate

As we all pause to give thanks at the beginning of this holiday season, I’d like to share with you a few things for which I am grateful.

I am thankful to live in a country whose government and citizens support the extraordinary work of the Taxpayer Advocate Service and for its dedicated employees who tirelessly advocate day in and day out to help taxpayers resolve their tax issues. I also am thankful for the dedicated work of IRS employees, whose compassion, along with those of the TAS employees, was demonstrated so strongly just recently in their efforts to assist victims of the recent disasters.  And I am thankful to you, the readers of this blog, who care about Taxpayer Rights as much as I do.

May your Thanksgiving holiday be a happy and peaceful one.  We’ll be back next week with our regular blog.

Nina E. Olson, National Taxpayer Advocate
