Receiving an IRS Notice
If you receive a letter from the IRS about your tax return, don’t panic! The IRS notice you receive likely covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. Generally, the IRS will send a notice if you owe additional tax, are due a larger refund, if there is a question about your tax return or if the IRS needs additional information from you to process your return or resolve your issue.
If you receive a letter or notice from the IRS, it will outline the reason for the correspondence and will provide instructions and next steps. Many of these letters and notices can be dealt with simply, without having to call or visit an IRS office. If you need clarification or assistance in responding to your notice, please call the IRS at 1-800-829-4933.
