IRS Letters & Notices!

By
Education & Training with Tax Raj Solutions LLC

I represent taxpayers in Boulder, CO and Denver, CO Metropolitan, CO who have issues with unpaid taxes  and outstanding tax liabilities, back taxes and wage garnishments.

 

These are three different scenarios associated with these letters. A lot of people are happy and waiting for these letters especially when they are expecting a refund check from the IRS or State Department of Revenue.  Other times it is a different story, especially if the taxpayers were not expecting it. Then, they are fearful of what is in the letter and do not want to open it and find out. Lastly, the taxpayer knew it was coming and now it is here: a notice from the IRS for non-payment of taxes due or unfiled tax returns. 

This year and last has been hard for most Americans and people around the world. I found out this year from talking to people, when they came to get their tax, that some people got their stimulus money on a credit/debit card. Enough people told me that they did not know and threw away the cards because they thought it was some scam.


Taking the following steps:

  1. Open the letter/notice:  – Open the mail and find out what it is. If it is some unexpected ask around other people or do some sort of research before you though away.
  2. The IRS letter/notices: Letters will tell you whether they are providing you information only or you need to take some actions
  3. Identify your notices: Different types of notices from the IRS carry different levels of urgency. Identifying which notice you have received will help determine next steps. Notices could vary from calculation error, unreported income, tax return audits, tax lien and levies. Some of these notices require a response from taxpayers within a certain time frame. If you or someone you know needs help to figure out what the IRS is asking you to do, please contact me.

Taxpayers with the notices that require a response should contact the office immediately for assistance. Many tax preparers and accounting professionals are extremely busy due to the complexity of tax regulations brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the IRS collection efforts to contact taxpayers with unfiled tax returns.


If you or somebody else you know are having IRS issues please feel free to contact me raj@taxrajsolutions.com or call me 301-461-2022. The IRS doesn't like to be ignored. Be proactive.
