I Got a Certified Letter From The IRS, Now What?

When you receive a piece of mail from the IRS, many people’s first reaction is fear, anxiety, or nervousness. However, we’re here to remind you not to panic! Getting a letter from the IRS isn’t always cause for concern, and even if it’s news about something negative, usually these letters include explicit instructions and details about the reason for contacting you. At Key Tax Group, we want to help our clients learn the ins and outs of handling interactions with the IRS.

Read the Letter Carefully

First, when you receive a certified letter from the IRS, it’s important to completely understand the contents of the letter so you can take the correct following steps. There are many reasons the IRS would send a certified letter to a person, ranging from a refund discrepancy to identity verification, and many other reasons. Reading through the letter in its entirety is important to make sure that you know what’s required of you from the government agency.




If Everything Seems in Order

If your letter is simply a notice or a request for more information, it will include detailed information on the next steps you need to take. If everything seems in order with the information included in your IRS letter, then your next steps are simply to follow your instructions carefully so that you can get back into good standing with the IRS.
