What to do if you receive a letter from a tax agency
Over any calendar year, I receive quite a few calls from people who didn't know where to turn after receiving a letter from a tax agency.
Akin to the feeling of being in the Principal's office for something done wrong, people are scared, confused and just want direction on how to handle what they've received.
Give us a call. Sometimes the letter is just asking for additional information. It could be a letter saying they noticed a discrepancy and resolved it without needing taxpayer input.
The worst thing you can do is to ignore it. If there is a liability, interest and penalties may accrue.
We've helped many people interpret what tax agency letters are saying. All you want is to avoid living in fear of the unknown and to be in compliance.
