It’s that time again. Tax season is upon us. This year, the deadline to file your 2021 Federal tax returns or request an extension is Monday, April 18, 2022.
The Importance of Certified Mail® for Tax Documents
The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) suggests filing online to avoid processing delays and encourages direct deposit for speedy tax refunds. However, as accountants and tax professionals know, electronic filing is not always an option. In addition to mailing your tax return, responses to IRS notices are sent via the Postal Service® or private delivery services. Thus, presenting the importance of Certified Mail®.
Certified Mail® provides the sender with proof of mailing, allows the sender to track the mail piece, and provides confirmation of delivery. All of which are extremely helpful; especially, when corresponding with a federal agency.
