Tax Returns

The tax returns filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) need to undergo quite an extensive review process before they are finally accepted. While it is mandatory for each taxpayer to regularly file tax returns, not everyone is aware of what exactly happens once they submit their file. Keep reading to know how the IRS uses an amazing blend of man and machine to process tax returns.

Error Resolution Service

Firstly, the filed return goes through an error resolution service, which is designed to point out potential errors. If it finds an error, the return file is reviewed by an IRS employee manually to make sure it is a mistake and not due to a software issue. If a genuine error is spotted, the IRS representative corrects it using the IRS’s “Math Error Authority” and sends an email to the taxpayer about the correction.

Declined Returns

When the error spotted in a return filed by a taxpayer cannot be corrected under the IRS’s “Math Error Authority”, it is rejected. This mainly occurs due to reasons like missing forms or incomplete information. The taxpayer is requested through a letter to send in the missing forms or information in 20 days. Failing to do so can result in an increase in the tax dues or a reduction in the amount refunded.

Potential Case Of Identity Theft

Before posting, the IRS sends every filed return through identity theft/fraud filters to validate the information provided in the forms. Any return tagged to be potentially fraudulent is sent for further examination to the Taxpayer Protection Program (TPP). Taxpayers are informed immediately with a letter sent by TPP that asks them for authentication of their identity through online mediums, phone, or by going to a Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC).

Non-Dispatchable Returns

Non-dispatchable returns refer to returns that can simply not be processed by the IRS. As electronically filed returns get immediately rejected in case of errors, non-dispatchable returns are usually the hardcopies submitted in paper. When a taxpayer’s name or identification number does not match with the information on the file from the Social Security Administration, the return is deemed non-dispatchable. A letter regarding the same is sent to the taxpayer and educates them about the best way to correct the error.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
