Taxpayer Civil Rights
Under no circumstances will the Internal Revenue Service tolerate discriminatory treatment of taxpayers by its employees, or individuals who volunteer at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) sites. No taxpayer shall be subject to discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, reprisal, disability, or age in educational programs or activities supported by the Department of the Treasury – Internal Revenue Service.
Taxpayers with a disability may require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate or receive the benefits of a program or activity supported by the Department of the Treasury – Internal Revenue Service. Site Coordinators and Managers are responsible for ensuring that requests for reasonable accommodation are granted when the request is made by a qualified individual with a disability.
If a qualified taxpayer believes that he or she has been discriminated against based on sex, race, color, national origin, disability, reprisal, or age, he or she may file a complaint with the Department of the Treasury – Internal Revenue Service. All written complaints should be sent to:
Director, Civil Rights Division
