A tax notice is a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that alerts a taxpayer about an issue with their account or tax return.

A tax notice can be sent to you for many reasons. The IRS may be informing you about a correction on a return, a balance due, or an overpaid tax. There is often a simple solution to an issue indicated in a tax notice. Responding to the IRS before the deadline can help you avoid tax penalties and interest.
