Understanding Your IRS Notice / Letter
1st Don’t Panic – The IRS itself says this, and you should take it to heart, for it is more important than you might think. First, open the envelope–don’t assume you know what it is. Not every envelope from the IRS is a bill or even bad news. Many IRS letters and IRS notices can be dealt with simply and painlessly. In fact, many merely specify what the IRS did with your account, what the IRS has received, or what the IRS has on file.
2nd Read Carefully – This sounds silly, but many of us don’t read carefully enough. There are many reasons the IRS sends IRS letters and IRS notices. The notice may request payment, may notify you of how the IRS applied a payment you made, may notify you of a change to your account, or may request additional information.
