IRS Simplifies Notices: Enhanced Clarity for Taxpayers

Have you ever been perplexed when reading an IRS letter you received in the mail? You’re not alone. The IRS is attempting to simplify and clarify its letters by launching the Simple Notice Initiative. The new program will review and redesign hundreds of documents with an immediate focus on the most common notices that individual taxpayers receive. The redesign work will accelerate during the 2025 and 2026 filing seasons, expanding into notices going to businesses. During the last year, the IRS reviewed and redesigned 31 notices in time for this year’s tax season.

If you receive a letter from the IRS and don’t understand it, we’d be pleased to help. Contact ATA.
