Notice of Deficiency

The Internal Revenue Service’s Notice of Deficiency, or “90 Day Letter” is essentially your ticket to United States Tax Court. Many people mistakenly believe that this Notice means they have already been assessed the tax when in fact they have not. You will typically receive the Notice of Deficiency (NOD) after an audit. The Audit Examiner has little power other than proposing that you pay more tax. Unless you absolutely agree with the Audit Examiner, NEVER sign any documents agreeing to this proposed assessment because typically what the IRS wants you to sign is a Waiver of a Notice of Deficiency, meaning you will be assesed the taxes without rights to appeal.

Once you receive your Notice of Deficiency, contact a Texas tax attorney immediately, as you only have 90 days to contest the assessment proposed in the audit. The Scammahorn Law Firm will review the Tax Examination Changes thoroughly, finding flaws in the IRS’ reasoning, and file a lawsuit on your behalf within the 90 day period in order to prevent the taxes from being asssessed against you.

The worst choice you can make is to ignore a Notice of Deficiency from the IRS. Call the Texas Tax Lawyer at the Scammahorn Law Firm today at 903-595-1000 and put and end to your IRS problems.
