Don’t panic if you get a letter from the IRS with a code listed. In most cases, you don’t have anything to worry about. The IRS sends out millions of letters each year to taxpayers notifying them of account information.
Read it carefully to know what you’re supposed to do. If you don’t need to respond, then no further action is required.
If you need to respond to it, here’s what you should include in your letter.
What to include in your letter to the IRS
Type out what you want to say with the below details.
Any information you want the IRS to consider
Information such as dates, employment status, payment, or documents. The more details, the better. When making your case, give particular reasons why they should reconsider.
Any documents you want the IRS to examine
Include forms such as W-2s, 1099s, 1120s, or 1040s. It’s possible they overlooked a number while submitting your documents. When you receive a copy of your completed files from the IRS, double-check for accuracy. If you see a discrepancy, it’s wise to send them the relating documents.
A written document telling your stance
Give the proper details of what you want them to know. Type it and print it so they have a hard copy record of it.
Allow at least 30 days for a response
IRS dealings take time to process. Allow them at least 30 days to look over your documents and get back to you. If you still haven’t heard from them by then, give them a call.
