When you file erroneous and frivolous complaints against the IRS, you could also be put under investigation.
Some people will make claims and complaints related to their taxes that don’t end up having any merit. Not only does this waste the IRS’ time and resources, people often do so when they are trying to skirt their responsibility and defraud the government.
While you should never hesitate to touch base with the IRS when you have any sort of claim, make sure that you’re not tying them up with frivolous arguments, because it can come back to bite you.
The best way to address these sorts of problems is to hire the help of a tax professional that understands whether or not you have a claim. By hiring them as a third-party, they can speak on your behalf and you will decrease the likelihood that you will be put under investigation for legitimate claims.
Always be sure that any tax professional you hire is accredited and look into their background information to know that they are trusted.
