Kinder And Gentler IRS: Understanding Your Notice

If you receive a letter or notice from the IRS, it will explain the reason for the correspondence and provide instructions. The notice you receive covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. Generally, the IRS will send a notice if it believes you are due a larger refund, owe additional tax, there is a need for additional information or if there is a question about your tax return.

Redesigned notices are now being sent to us as taxpayers. Don’t panic: instead, call a tax attorney. Call (310) 559-5259.
