IRS Temporarily Suspends Mailing Certain Notices

The IRS has suspended mailing three notices that go to taxpayers who have a balance due on their taxes. The notices are the CP-501, the CP-503 and the CP-504. This temporary suspension is due to the backlog of unopened mail at the IRS from office closures.
