When you’re facing a tax issue, one of the first steps in formulating a plan of action is understanding the meaning and context of the letters you’ve received from the IRS. Each correspondence is unique and comes with its own implications, timelines, and options. It is important to neither overreact to, nor downplay the importance of, each notice; but rather to educate yourself and proceed by knowing your options. It is also imperative to know your rights as a taxpayer, including your right to representation.
