Watch for Scams

The IRS will never contact a taxpayer using social media or a text message. The first contact from the IRS usually comes in the mail. Taxpayers who are unsure whether they owe money to the IRS should view their tax account information on IRS.gov. If, after using the “search” feature on this webpage, it doesn't return a result, or the notice or letter looks suspicious, contact the IRS at 800.829.1040. If it is determined the notice or letter is fraudulent, please follow the IRS assistor's guidance or visit the Report Phishing page for next steps.

IRS Notices


Getting a letter from the IRS can make some taxpayers nervous – but there’s no need to panic. Taxpayers should understand they need to read the notice and take any appropriate action listed. Every taxpayer has rights they should be aware of when dealing with the IRS. Including the right to be informed and the right to challenge the IRS’s position and be heard. The IRS sends notices and letters to ensure taxpayers are informed and can raise objections and provide additional documentation in response to formal IRS actions.

Why was I notified by the IRS?

The IRS sends notices and letters for the following reasons:

  • You have a balance due.
  • You are due a larger or smaller refund.
  • They have a question about your tax return.
  • They need to verify your identity.
  • They need additional information.
  • They changed your return.
  • They need to notify you of delays in processing your return.

What should I do?

  • Read the letter carefully.
  • Review the information
  • Reply and take any requested action
