The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued an apology after sending billing notices to millions of taxpayers, many labeled with the wrong due date, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The IRS sent approximately five million notices to taxpayers who filed a tax return in 2022 and have an outstanding balance, but some live in counties in several states that are impacted by natural disasters and have additional time to pay, according to the WSJ. The IRS apologized for confusion and will conduct a review.

“The IRS apologizes to taxpayers and tax professionals for any confusion as we continue to review the situation. Taxpayers receiving these letters do not need to call the IRS or their tax professional,” the IRS said, according to the WSJ.

Taxpayers in most parts of California and other states including Georgia and Alabama that were impacted by natural disasters were given extra time to file 2022 tax returns, according to the WSJ. Those who received an extension have until Oct. 16 to file, according to the IRS website.

Tom Lasser, a retired Army officer in California, was sent a notice informing him that he owed $5,122 by June 26, according to the WSJ. He told the outlet “it didn’t make any sense.”

Taxpayers who don’t pay by the written due date risk the IRS conducting collection measures including a tax lien, the WSJ reported.

Some of the due dates on the notices are accurate, according to the WSJ. One tax professional suggested those with inaccurate due dates hold off on paying, while another suggested sending the letter back to the IRS.

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
