1. Don’t ignore it.
Some tax notices may include a “reply by” date which can lead to additional penalties and interest if not addressed by that date.
2. Be aware of phishing scams.
If a tax notice/letter looks suspicious, you can contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 (Individuals) or 1-800-829-4933 (Businesses) to determine if its legitimate. The IRS will never contact a taxpayer by email, text message or social media about their taxes. For more information about phishing scams, visit https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing.
