Each year, the IRS mails millions of notices and letters to taxpayers for a variety of reasons. If you receive correspondence from the IRS here’s what to do:
Don’t panic. Call our office at 727 330-3500 and inform us that you received an IRS letter. We are your representatives before the IRS, and according to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, you have the legal right to representation. Responding to these letters is our area of expertise, so please do not attempt to contact the IRS and resolve this on your own.
Each notice has specific instructions, so read your notice carefully because it will tell you what needs to be done.
Your notice will likely be about changes to your account, taxes you owe or a payment request. However, your notice may ask for more information about a specific issue.
If your notice says that the IRS changed or corrected your tax return, we will review the information and compare it with your original return.
Be alert for tax scams. The IRS sends letters and notices by mail and does NOT contact people by email or social media to ask for personal or financial information. If you owe tax, please call our office to find out what your options are.
