How to deal with a letter from the IRS

DON'T GET SCAMMED

IRS scams look very real. Scammers take advantage of the panic you feel when you receive anything from the IRS:

  • The IRS sends ALL information through snail mail

  • They will NEVER ask for your personal information over an email or phone call

  • Remember to Stop - Think - Delete

This notice means the IRS has received inconsistent income records from a third-party. It is not a bill. On average, our clients only owe 18% of what is on the notice.
