Did the IRS flag your tax return – – don’t panic!

The IRS may be closed due to the government shutdown but it will reopen and resume sending taxpayers those dreaded notices that it is questioning something on a tax return.  Before you panic, take time to read the notice thoroughly. It may be something very simple that can be taken care of quickly and without a lot of stress.  If you do not understand the notice, call the IRS and ask as many questions as necessary so that you understand the notice.  If all else fails, schedule an appointment with a tax professional and let them walk you through the process. But most of all . . . do not panic!
