(It Happens more often than you’d think)
The IRS…they’re big, they’re bad, and no one wants to tangle with them. However, it doesn’t mean that they don’t make mistakes just like the rest of us. And it doesn’t mean that you can’t do any- thing about.
Some IRS mistakes that can cause problems are:
The wrong income can mistakenly be reported under your Social Security number. This can happen when you open a bank account for a child or a relative and they use your Social Security number.
An error may have been made but only partially corrected while the IRS employee processed your return. Many times they forget to remove the interest and penalties that they had charged you due to their mistake.
This is only the tip of the ice-berg. There are several more mistakes that can be made by the IRS that you should be aware of.
