Letter to IRS | Sample Letters to IRS Free

First of all, don’t get panic if you have received Letters from IRS. Instead, take a deep breath and be sure that you read carefully at what the IRS notice actually says. Also, make sure that you follow any instructions listed, compare any adjustments suggested to a copy of your filed return, and fully address all points on the notice.

Here are some of the reasons why you receive an IRS letter or IRS Tax Notice

1. The notice is simply requesting information that is missing from the originally filed tax return–your signature, tax schedules or forms such as a W-2 or 1099 showing federal tax withholding, or Schedule D showing realized gain/loss detail. Or the notice states that an addition/subtraction error was made.

2. Notifications occur when the IRS makes an adjustment to your return; often no action is required if the taxpayer agrees with the changes.

3. Matching notices result from the IRS comparing your tax return to tax documents received directly from financial institutions. Since computers match the information to your return, double-check to ensure you (or they) didn’t miss anything.

4. The reminder notice occurs when the IRS has sent a previous letter requesting a balance due and did not receive a response or payment from the taxpayer. This can be followed by a final notice and then a notice of intent to levy, which is the most serious notice and typically precedes an attempt by the IRS to garnishee wages and/or Social Security benefits, or to place a lien on assets. Respond to these letters immediately, either by calling the number listed or mailing a response back to the address listed on the document.The reminder notice occurs when the IRS has sent a previous letter requesting a balance due and did not receive a response or payment from the taxpayer.

5. A correspondence audit notice is another common, but serious, notice. It usually requests additional documentation or explanation of information related to specific items on your tax return and is conducted by phone or mail instead of in person.
