You received a letter from the IRS. Now what?

Every year, the IRS mails millions of notices and letters to taxpayers. If you receive one, first of all, don’t panic. Most are related to a specific issue with your tax return or tax account and do not signal a tax audit. Second, don’t ignore it. Read it carefully so you can understand the reason for the notice. The next step is to reach out to Kaufman Rossin. Kaufman Rossin’s tax professionals can evaluate the letter to determine the appropriate action. We have significant experience helping businesses and individuals address and resolve tax disputes, no matter how complex.
