I’m an expat and I received a letter from the IRS. What should I do?
First, don’t panic. While some IRS notices can signal the beginning of an audit, others are informational and may require no action. When you receive an IRS notice while abroad, be sure to review it thoroughly. If a response is required, ensure that it is timely, properly addressed, and covers all of the issues raised in the notice. If you’re not comfortable drafting a response or have questions, reach out to a qualified tax professional. With H&R Block’s Advanced Notice & Audit Support, you’ll have nothing to fear. We have the expertise to help you understand the notice and respond confidently.
