Kudos for our Taxpayer Rights Advocate team

". . . each advocate was well educated, versed and prepared to discuss the facts, exhibits and my position in this case. During our conversations, they always made me feel that I was listened to, I was heard and I was respected. They made me feel that they took their professional responsibilities as advocates seriously, were sympathetic to my situation, and were dedicated to assisting the taxpayer."
