Senators Propose Legislation to Simplify IRS Notices

Senators Bill Cassidy and Elizabeth Warren have introduced the IRS MATH Act to address the confusion taxpayers face when receiving math error notices from the IRS, which often lack clarity and leave taxpayers unsure of how to respond. The legislation aims to improve these notices by requiring the IRS to specify the exact error, provide a clear explanation, and outline the taxpayer’s response deadline. It also mandates notification of abatement determinations and establishes a pilot program to test sending notices by certified or registered mail. Cassidy emphasizes the importance of clear communication from the IRS, stating that taxpayers should understand any mistakes on their returns and have ample opportunity to address them.
