Wednesday February 9, 2022 – “The IRS announced today the suspension of more than a dozen additional letters, including the mailing of automated collection notices normally issued when a taxpayer owes additional tax, and the IRS has no record of a taxpayer filing a tax return.”
Some taxpayers, who have filed their tax returns that remain unprocessed, started receiving collection notices in error. Those notices are sent out automatically. So, when the return is not put into the system, the system assumes the return is unfiled. The unprecedented delays the IRS is experiencing continues to create unforeseen problems.
Which notices are covered? Attorney Steven A. Leahy will examine the effected notices and what you can expect next.
