Dealing with the IRS can be intimidating, especially when you receive a notice that the tax authorities’ records don’t match your own. If you receive a notification regarding a balance due, change to your return, or other IRS actions, it’s easy to be overwhelmed and to worry that you did something wrong. But that’s not always the case.
Many taxpayers make the mistake of assuming the IRS is right every time; however, that’s not true! Typically, tax officials provide you with accurate information based on the documents they have received, but very frequently, they don’t have all the paperwork to tell the whole story. That’s why it’s important to bring in a tax help professional to review the situation. A qualified tax expert can review the IRS notice and determine where the discrepancy in your tax return developed. It may be that you failed to submit supporting documentation such as Form 8949 after the sale of your home or that the IRS simply needs to verify that you have the correct donation receipts for several large cash contributions to charity.
Working with an experienced tax resolution professional can provide you with the peace of mind to sort out whatever IRS notice you’ve received. So don’t just assume that the IRS is right if it says you owe additional tax or identifies other “mistakes” on your tax return. The Price Advantage Accounting team can help you get to the bottom of things. The IRS may be right. You may be right. It might be a little of both. And with expert tax assistance, you can rest assured that we’ll set the record straight.
