IRS Notice in the mail? New IRS Notices Are Easier on Taxpayers

It's never Good News to get an IRS Notice in the Mail, especially if it's Notice of Intent to Levy. But at least new IRS notices are easier for taxpayers to understand. Here's the update:

These improvements are long overdue. Streamlined IRS Notices will help the client understand exactly what they owe and how they should contact the IRS. It's a small step, but it's a step in the right direction for the IRS.

Only nine new notices were released. Until then, taxpayers are stuck with a convuluted notice system. Contact a tax professional if you're unsure of any IRS notice you receive, or look it up the notice number on the IRS official website.
