Millions of letters and notices from the IRS are mailed to taxpayers every year. While the initial reaction to opening your mailbox and seeing a letter from the IRS may be that of a shocking or nervous state, all letters from the IRS are not detrimental with many being able to resolve easily.
Here’s what you should do if you just so happen to receive that unexpected envelope in the mail:
