RECIEVED A BILL FROM THE IRS FOR BALANCE DUE ON 2020 TAXES

JJD753
Level 3

Like many of you we have rec'd  calls today because of estimated payments not being taken out. But we just rec'd one because a client rec'd a bill for 2020 taxes that were due on 4/15. Not only that, but they're charging interest of 96 cents if paid by 5/10. He is set up for an electronic withdrawal on 5/17. What is going on at the irs?

No, but Liechtenstein does show up in a Google search for obscure countries.

sounds like their computers aren't updated for the new due date and are just sending notices out as if this were any other year.

Problem with that - some clients will be hard to convince it is an IRS issue not a preparer issue                                                   potentially resulting in loss of a client next year

                             - some clients will pay the bill without discussing with the preparer first

Exactly the kind of client we'd like to lose.
