Have you heard?
Tired of getting tax notices that are not applicable to you? Well, look no further. The IRS has announced the temporary suspension of several automated notices to allow them to work through the backlog that they are experiencing due to limited resources. Some taxpayers may still receive notices that were pushed out prior to this announcement. Be sure to check out the list of suspended notices to determine if you need to respond accordingly.
