Business Filer Notices

One of the ways we classify our notices is by the type of tax form they're about. We call notices we send about business-related tax forms such as Forms 941, 1065, and 1120, business filer notices.  Notices we send about Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, or any related schedules, forms, or other attachments are called individual filer notices and are listed elsewhere.  If the business filer notice you have isn't listed below, check back often. We'll be adding more on a regular basis.
