IRS Aims to Clear Backlog by 2023

IRS Aims to Clear Backlog by 2023

Like most companies and government agencies, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) fell behind on its work during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency is trying to overcome a significant backlog, and its goal is to do so by 2023.

Currently, the IRS has 11 million returns from 2021 to process and millions more filed in 2022. While many people have received refunds, others are waiting. If you have not yet filed your taxes for 2022, now is the time to do so, and you should always have help from a skilled San Francisco tax attorney. The IRS hired additional staff and has additional funding to catch up and get on top of its tax return processing for 2022.

No matter whether the IRS is on top of its backlog or not, you should make it a priority to be on top of your back taxes. If you need assistance with the preparation of past returns, amending filed returns, or responding to IRS communications, our law firm can help. We assist people with initial filings and any issues that may arise regarding past filings.

If the IRS contacted you regarding an audit or back taxes you owe, your first call should be to a tax attorney. Taking on the IRS on your own can result in harsh consequences, but the right legal help can address your tax concerns head-on. We know your rights under the law, and we can assess your options based on your individual situation.
