#1 Anyone besides me experiencing this? Accountant filed electronically on 21 April. Small refund expected. Received IRS CP11 letter on July 26, 2021 telling me I owe money. Something to do with "A change in return due to Recovery Rebate Credit" no further info provided. Per accountant, I've tried to contact the IRS telephonically on 4 different occasions. No luck to date. Not a large sum of money, but it's my money.

Same accountant for last 18 years. Never an issue or audit.

Ideas? Recommendations?

#2 Similar letter. Our accountant wrote them a nice letter and told us not to worry - the IRS is in chaos.

Twenty years ago, I got a nice letter from the IRS saying I owed all my taxes, plus interest, in two weeks - or die. I wrote them a nice letter pointing out the completed tax return, with attached W-2 forms, indicated they had all the tax money, and my refund amount. In a couple of weeks, I got a letter that said ignore the first letter. The refund was quite late, however...

#4 Beso & Bobby - agreed; the IRS is in chaos right now. I don't have time to go into detail, but wait a few months on those letters. I bet they'll disappear with time.
