Read, Understand, & Respond Immediately
If you receive an IRS notice or letter, you will want to determine if you should handle the issue yourself, or seek the advice of a competent and knowledgeable tax professional. Either way, it is in your best interest to respond and try to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
Your notice or letter will explain the reason for the contact and give you instructions on how to handle and resolve the tax issue(s) in the notice or letter.
If the IRS changed your return, compare the information they provided in the notice or letter with the information in your tax return.
If you agree with the informtion, there is no need to contact the IRS unless your notice or letter indicates that you must repsond to indicate your agreement.
With so many tax scams today, if you believe the notice or letter looks suspicious, contact the IRS at 800-829-1040.

- The IRS has a question about your tax return.
- The IRS needs to verify your identity.
- The IRS needs additional information.
- The IRS changed your tax return.

Each notice or letter contains valuable information, so it's very important that you read it carefully.
IRS Issues Do NOT Go Away By Themselves
Respond Promptly: DON'T IGNORE YOUR NOTICE OR PUT IT OFF
If your notice or letter requires a response by a specific date, there are two main reasons you'll want to comply:
- to minimize additonal penalties and interest charges
- to preserve your appeal rights if you disagree
If it is ultimately that you owe tax, pay as much as you can, even if you can't pay the full amount you owe all at once.
