Handling Notices from the IRS

I just got a letter from the IRS!

Receiving any form of communication from the Internal Revenue Service can send chills down your spine. Many people harbor an unfounded fear of the unknown when it relates to the IRS.

Don’t Fret!

Seeing a letter from this government agency in your mailbox does not mean you did something wrong, violated tax code or are on the list to be audited. In fact, sometimes a letter from the IRS can carry news in your favor. So the first step is to take a deep breath and remember that everything will be ok.

After that, contact your team of tax advisors at ClearPath Advisors, we are here to help! The most important thing to remember is that you should not wait to act on an IRS letter. We are your tax team. We are here to advise and answer your questions.
