The IRS has temporarily halted certain outgoing mail. Due to a backlog of unopened mail created by the COVID-19 lockdown, payments from taxpayers that have a balance due may not have been posted to their accounts. As a result, the IRS will suspend automatic mailing of follow-up notices that remind taxpayers to make payments. “This temporary adjustment to processing is intended to lessen any possible confusion that might be associated with delays in processing correspondence received from taxpayers,” the agency said. For taxpayers who mailed payments that haven’t yet been opened, the payments will be credited on the day the payment was received. Click for more info.
