In the last weeks, we noted a significant increase in the notices received by our clients as there seem to be a backlog in the tax authorities.
In some cases, the system automatically sends out a notice even if the documents and support was already provided to the tax authorities almost a year ago.
Address those notices as soon as possible based on the items requested. In general, you should provide proof of the original communication submitted to the tax authorities (fax, certified letter, etc.).
If you already made the payment and it is not in their system, please, send them the cashed check image or confirmation from the online payment.
If you have any other questions or you need assistance, reach out to our office.
