Paid Taxes but Received an IRS Notice for an Amount Due? Don’t Panic.

We have recently been made aware that the IRS has been sending notices to taxpayers indicating an amount due, even when payments have already been sent in. The delay is coming from the IRS side, where they have not processed payments received recently, either by not cashing checks and/or not applying cashed checks to the proper taxpayers’ accounts. The IRS is asking taxpayers to allow 90 days for them to process recent payments and update the taxpayers’ accounts.

If you receive a notice asking for payment due on an amount you know has already been paid, please forward a copy of the notice to your Smith Leonard advisor, and we will gladly offer assistance.
