IRS Notices Webpage
New Notices Website
Taxpayer representatives will now be able to view the core message of sample IRS notices on an easy to navigate website that is now available. This notice website was created to assist payroll representatives and practitioners who receive taxpayer inquiries about IRS notices to easily view samples of the text in the notices without waiting to see hard copies. Since tax professionals will be the primary users of this tool, the site is located on the Tax Professionals page of the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96199,00.html. This may be a site to add as a Favorite for quick reference.
One of the goals for having the notice information available electronically is to more quickly resolve account issues between the taxpayer, the tax professional and the IRS. Since the sample text of the notice can be viewed on-line while taxpayers and their representatives discuss it on the phone, communication could be greatly improved. After reading the content of the notice, the representative could then advise their client of the next steps. Additionally, the representative may be able to resolve the issue by working directly with IRS and require less taxpayer involvement, thereby reducing time.
