Urgency To Respond To IRS Notices

Serving The Greater Minneapolis And St. Paul Twin Cities Area And St. Croix County, Wisconsin

Many tax notices from the federal IRS or Minnesota Department of Revenue (MDR) may be informational in nature, notifying the taxpayer of the department's receipt of information and do not require a response. Some notices, however, inform the taxpayers that there was something about their 1040 or business tax returns that has raised red flags. Many of these notices request further information or identify the additional amount of taxes due. Although it may be tempting to set these notices aside to deal with them later, it is critically important to respond urgently.

Why You Benefit By Responding Right Away

Make no mistake: There is an urgency to respond to IRS notices. Despite public perception, the IRS and MDR offices are staffed by real people who understand that individuals, families and business owners run into financial difficulties. If your IRS notice or MDR notice is informing you of significant additional taxes due, you can respond with an initial voluntary payment, which will often be viewed by IRS and MDR employees as a 'good faith' attempt toward an offer in compromise, installment payment or other settlement option.

There is no guarantee that you will receive some money off your tax bill or a favorable installment agreement if you respond right away. Everybody's situation will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. It will not work in your favor if you ignore four or five notices by regular mail and wait until you receive a notice by certified mail before responding.
