What is a Notice?
Notices from the IRS are official letters they send to taxpayers about tax matters. These notices can be about various things like requesting more information, explaining changes to your tax return, reminding you about taxes owed, or updating you on the status of your tax situation. It's important to read and respond to these notices promptly to address any issues or provide the necessary information.

- The IRS needs to verify your identity.
- The IRS needs additional information.
- The IRS changed the return.
- The IRS is notifying you of delays in processing your return.
