Question

I recently received an adjustment letter from the IRS, which explained that an adjustment to my tax return indicates that I am responsible for additional taxes. If I disagree with the adjustment and additional taxes for which I am now responsible, what recourse to I have?

Answer

The letter you received should provide instructions on how the IRS want you to respond. The letter should request a written response from you explaining why you don’t agree with the additional taxes. Once you respond, the IRS will review your situation and alert you to their decision regarding the adjusted return dispute.
