Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
CTR’s Ft. Lauderdale tax attorney is providing advice to Florida taxpayers that have received notices from the IRS. There are several types of notices sent by the IRS, and various reasons that they would be issued. Most IRS notices are related to discrepancies in tax returns. If a taxpayer is in debt to the IRS, they may find some notices of taxes owed, tax lien or levy arriving in the mail. The firm has received input from many clients that have received notices, claiming that they don’t know what the next step should be in answering the notices.
“We want taxpayers to know what the different notices sent by the IRS are,” a CTR spokesperson stated. “While some of the notices can be scary, there is no reason to fear all correspondence from the IRS. Gardena tax attorneys are helping individuals in California that are concerned about the notice they received to understand what it means, and how to go forward. Occasionally they even send notices of errors in your favor which are followed up by issued refund checks.”
CTR advises taxpayers that they typically have 30 days to respond to an IRS notice before they take action. If the notice is one in which the IRS owes money to an individual, they will issue the refund. If an error has been made on a refund, it can be appealed. If a taxpayer in Texas contacted a Garland tax attorney because the IRS sent a CP09 notice, the professional would help the client understand that they were eligible for an Earned Income Tax Credit and failed to claim it. CTR’s experts have seen many cases in which late responses have increased tax issues for taxpayers and are trying to prevent this through the advice given.
CTR has helped many clients that have received notices such as the IRS Notice CP180, which is sent when an income tax return is missing a specific form or schedule. A taxpayer that has gotten such a notice should fill out the form, available on the IRS’ website, and fill out the form and the information section of the notice by the deadline. Gilbert tax attorney, in the face of admitted confusion clients have expressed over these forms, has started warning Arizona taxpayers that failure to do so may cause a problem with the return so that it will be considered incomplete.
CTR has always focused on helping clients with notices resulting from IRS tax debt. Tax debt is an issue that can be fixed through a solution found by the firm’s tax representatives. If a balance is owed, the IRS will send out notice CP503. If payment is not made in full, or the taxpayer receiving the notice does not contact a tax professional to set up a settlement plan, the IRS can issue a notice of tax lien. If no payment is made, the IRS can add penalties and interest and even begin to levy against the frozen accounts and assets to ensure they get paid.
