Understanding IRS Certified Letters

Have you received certified mail from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and wondered what exactly it meant? These official notifications, sent by the IRS, are not your everyday letters.

They taxpayers about a variety of issues, including audits or examinations, tax debts, interest and more. Usually delivered by the United States Postal Service, these letters require a signature upon receipt, which serves as evidence of delivery. While receiving mail from IRS can be intimidating, it’s crucial to thoroughly review the content. 

 An IRS-certified letter is sent to individuals or small businesses who owe money to or are being audited by the IRS. These letters may also be sent in response to missing or incomplete tax returns, lack of tax compliance, or merely requests for additional information. It is essential to take IRS certified letters as seriously, as they often indicate significant issues that require immediate attention.

If you have received certified mail from the IRS it is imperative to read it carefully and follow all instructions provided. Failure to respond to an IRS certified letter can result in severe consequences, including additional penalties, interest charges on top of the penalties, and potentially even legal action. The complexities of the Internal Revenue Tax code can be challenging, but working with a qualified tax professional can help make the process become much easier to navigate.

Whan a CERTIFIED LETTER or NOTICE from the IRS arrives, YOU MUST ACT on it.

  1. By certified mail
  2. By notice of federal tax levy or by filing of federal tax lien
  3. By regular mail
  4. By telephone


When IRS contacts you by certified mail it is about time to get serious about the making your next move. The IRS has tried to contact you before to resolve the issue, but their efforts have been unsuccessful.

A certified letter from the IRS usually means that if they haven’t already, they are ready to begin enforced collections activity. Unless you reach out to them within the period of time proscribed in the letter, the IRS will probably garnish your wages, levy your bank account and file a Federal Tax Lien.

It is time to call Joshua A. Webskowski, EA, USTCP and his team of tax professionals with over 130+ years of previous experience working for the IRS.

In most cases, within a thirty-day period of time, the IRS will send a wage levy to your employer, and or a bank levy to your bank accounts.

Whether you sign for the IRS certified mail or not, the 30-day period starts with the date on top of the IRS letter.

Before you make any contact with the IRS, you should know your rights so you don’t say or do something that will only make the situation worse than it already is. This requires a plan of action. Contact Joshua A. Webskowski, EA, USTCP and his team of tax professionals with over 130+ years of previous experience working for the IRS as soon as possible and we will contact the IRS immediately to stop any enforced collection activity.

The Customer Account Data Engine 2 (CADE2) computer is the issuer of IRS Letters and Notices

The Internal Revenue Service is spending millions and millions of dollars on their CADE2 computer system.  This is the giant computer system that belongs to Internal Revenue Service. All the different areas of the IRS are stored within and process through this massive computer.

  • All IRS notices, letters and bills that get sent out to taxpayers are generated from this CADE2 computer system.
  • All of the information that this computer generates is handled systemically so that no human hand will ever actually touch the piece of paper you eventually receive.
  • To stop the issuances of IRS notices and IRS letters, you need to contact an Internal Revenue Agent who can make direct changes on the CADE2 computer.
  • Usually, you will find a 1-800 number listed somewhere on your letter, notice or bill.
  • Rest assured, you will not be happy with the consequences of not responding.
  • The Internal Revenue Service will begin enforcement of collection activity sooner or later if you do not respond to the letter or notice and contact them.
  • It is critical that you contact the Internal Revenue Service at the number shown on Letter or Notice.
  • If you want to stop the problem or correct the situation, the worst thing you can do is not respond to the IRS notice letter.

Many people are unaware that the IRS has been sending notices and has been trying to contact them for some time. The first time that they may become more aware of this process is when a Federal Tax Levy is imposed upon them or a Federal Tax Lien hits their bank account or their employer receives a wage levy notification an immediately their paycheck is reduced to almost nothing. If you find yourself at this point in the process, it is time to retain a professional to resolve your case. In your own best interests, you should really not contact the IRS by yourself.  The IRS are trained skeptics and will use any information that comes out of your mouth to try and collect money from you.

IRS only sends out tax levies after a series of 5 letters are sent out. The following letters are each sent out in sequence with about 5 weeks between each letter issued.

  1. CP14 –  This is a notice of your balance due for unpaid tax.
  2. CP501 – This is a bill, a reminder you that you owe a tax that has not been paid.
  3. CP503 – Important, Immediate Action Required
  4. CP504 Urgent Notice – The IRS intends to Levy Certain Assets, Please Respond Now
  5. CP90/CP297/ IRS Letter 1058 – Final Notice of Intent to Levy & Notice of Your Right to a Hearing , In addition, if you are a Social Security recipient, you may receive a 6th letter:
  6. CP91 CP298 -Final Notice Before Levy on your Social Security Benefits


When the IRS contacts you by regular mail, they are usually trying to advise you of an issue and would like to “help” you to get it resolved. It is best to respond to the IRS and advise them of whether you agree or disagree with what their letter asserts. If you agree with IRS and can pay the back taxes (with the interest and penalties assessed and interest on the penalties assessed), than you should do so as soon as possible. If you agree and cannot pay the back taxes with interest and penalties plus interest on the penalties, then it’s time to call your Tax Professional, Joshua A. Webskowski, EA, USTCP and his team of former IRS Agents, Mangers, and Appeals officers so that we can negotiate with the IRS on your behalf and resolve this matter. If you disagree, be prepared to send the IRS the documentation appropriate to supporting your position in the case. Joshua A. Webskowski, EA, USTCP can also help you settle a dispute with the IRS if you believe you are correct.

4. Contact By Telephone

Contact by telephone sounds scary, but these can be the easiest of issues to resolve. Unless this is a complicated issue, you can usually take care of this process by yourself. However, if you owe back taxes, be careful whenever you are communicating with the IRS. Remember: the IRS is the most powerful collection agency in the world. If the call you place to them relates to back taxes owed from income or payroll taxes, contact your Tax Professional, Joshua A. Webskowski, EA, USTCP and his team of former IRS Agents, Mangers, and Appeals officers to handle this type of problem.

If the IRS has filed a substitute tax return for you, we can help you resolve that as well!

So now that you know the 4 Different Ways the IRS may contact you (by form letter, notice or phone call) what is the BEST first step in responding to the IRS?

First of all, DON’T PANIC.

The IRS is just trying to resolve what they have categorized as an open issue.

Most IRS letters, notices or bills come with a set period of time in which you must respond to their notification, usually from ten to thirty days.

You should respond within this fixed period of time that was specified in their letter — or the IRS will follow up  with you (and eventually use enforced collection activity). If you do not respond to the IRS’s attempts to contact you, they will normally issue a Federal Tax Lien on your property, a Wage garnishment (which is a levy) on your paycheck, or they will file a Tax Lien on your bank account.
