So you’ve filed your income tax return for the year. What happens next?
Check out this cool Taxpayer Roadmap created by the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service. It illustrates at a very high level the stages of a taxpayer’s journey, from getting answers to tax law questions, all the way through audits, appeals, collection, and litigation.
The Roadmap looks like the plumbing plans to a large commercial facility but does a great job of illustrating the flow and complexity of the US tax system.
