What Happens to Your Tax Return Once You File with the IRS?Tax
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.
