Earlier this month my family spent a wonderful day celebrating the birth of our great nation. We attended the 4th of July parade in Morgan Hill (it began in 1876), spent time with family and friends at a bar-b-que and enjoyed the fireworks in the evening. We have a lot to be thankful for.
While we enjoy and celebrate many aspects of our country, one that most people don’t appreciate is when a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is found in the mailbox. I am sure my reaction to receiving a letter from the IRS is not too uncommon - a sick-in-the-stomach feeling - but in reality most IRS letters do not represent an “end of the world Armageddon” situation. If any of our tax clients receive a letter from a taxing agency (IRS, etc.) they should contact us.
