Idaho Blogos: IRS Comes Knockin’

I've received maybe half a dozen letters from the IRS over the years, and even though none have been really bad news, it's never welcome correspondence. There were two in today's mail, one addressed to me, one to Jeanette. "We're required to send a copy of this to both you and your spouse," they say. At the same address? Regarding the joint return we filed? Yeah. So, just the one bit of bad news, but two copies. It seems our calculation (which was really TurboTax's) for our Form 1040 this year didn't agree with theirs. They figure we owed them $1.73 more, either because "we made changes to your return," or "the payments claimed on your return did not match our records," or "you owed other taxes or legal obligations" that they're required to collect/Fort Boise. More here.

Question: Have you ever received a letter from the IRS?
