If you have received an IRS notice or a tax audit letter, there can be a number of underlying reasons. Sometimes the scenario may not be as severe as it seems. The IRS might be conducting a random audit to check whether the information reported by you is correct according to Federal tax laws, or to simply verify the accuracy of the reported tax amount. If, however, you have any outstanding taxes due, you should immediately take action and contact The Law Offices of Nick Nemeth.
That is when you need the help of our IRS Tax attorneys.
The Next Steps
Whether you receive an IRS notice or an audit letter, you need to follow the steps below to minimize the severity of the problems that might lie ahead.
- Carefully read the letter. You need to clearly read it in order to figure out what the purpose of the letter is. It could be to simply inform you of any modifications in your tax return, or if you have any outstanding balance due towards the IRS.
- Respond to the letter in time. It is extremely important to send a response to the IRS within the stipulated time. This may allow you to avoid any penalties or charges against you, and to preserve your appeal rights if you do not agree with the terms of the notice.
- Provide correct information requested by the IRS. The IRS generally asks for your dependent exemptions, filing status, income, and withholdings to verify the information you provide. If you withhold or provide any false information, you may be subject to a more in-depth investigation.
- Pay the amount you owe to the IRS if possible. If you are unable to full-pay the debt, contact our office immediately to explore possible solutions and to prevent imminent levies, garnishments, seizures and Federal Tax Liens.
