Review your notice or letter closely to find out if the IRS agreed with your request to refund or abate interest, penalties, overpaid tax and or additional tax.
If the IRS has accepted your request, your tax account will be adjusted accordingly, and a refund will be issued, if applicable. Also, review your notice or letter to see if there is a specific website link to visit for additional information. This is usually located at the end of the notice or letter.
If the IRS has not accepted your request, then you have the right to either go to the IRS Independent Office of Appeals or request a review of your denial in U.S. Tax Court. Closely review your notice or letter to clearly understand your options, steps to complete and when your response is required, to ensure that it is received timely.
