The IRS just sent me a notice that I still owe money on my taxes. I realized that I forgot to file all of my data on my tax return. What do I do?
Lana – This is a great question for your accountant, if you have one. The basics are easy: the IRS has a form called 1040X, which is used specifically for situations like yours. The form is simple, but read the attached instructions. You’ll need to fill out only a portion of the form, depending on the particular mistake you’d made on the original. Include supporting documents along with your 1040X to make sure you keep the IRS happy.
