The IRS uses Letter 96C for correspondence of general information. It may be used to inform you that the IRS is doing nothing or to ask you for a response. Read the letter carefully to determine if a response is required.
Respond to Letter 96C
You should confirm the status of your account and any statute of limitation issues by calling the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to get your Account Transcripts. These will tell you the status of your file so you can make a better response. If you feel a response is necessary, respond timely, carefully and succinctly. It is best to investigate, copy & include all evidence required.
But, don't depend on the IRS to contact you. You must follow up with them!
The most usual reason for needing an attorney is to prepare a response to the IRS, if necessary. But most often, no tax attorney is needed. However, if you would like help with a response to the IRS, please follow the Prep Steps for Letter 96-C and see Mr. Hopkins in Colorado Springs, Pueblo or Denver before proceeding!
