Publication 5(redirected from Publ 5)
A form published by the IRS explaining how to appeal an adverse decision. For example, if the IRS audits a return and claims that a taxpayer owes $4,000 more than he/she paid in taxes, Publication 5 outlines the rights the taxpayer has and how the decision might be overturned. It also explains how the taxpayer may recover litigation and other costs from the IRS if he/she ultimately prevails.
