The letter is called an IRS Notice CP 2000, and it gives detailed breakdown information about issues the IRS identified and provides steps taxpayers should take to resolve those issues.

The taxpayer must address these issues timely, failure to do so will result in an assessment of additional taxes, interest and penalties. It’s almost like a “grey-area” correspondence audit.

Every year, around the 1st of January through April 15th every working American is expected to file an income tax return with the IRS. This return is used by the IRS to determine what your overall tax bill should have been for the previous year. Using a number of forms provided by the IRS everyone has to report their income and expenses.

The agents of the IRS will then review your tax return and determine whether or not all of the information is correct and that you either sent a check to cover what you owe the IRS or whether you are entitled to a refund check. With that said, if it is determined that there are any issues with your tax return, this will trigger the IRS to take a deeper look at your return and more than likely request an audit.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
