By following these steps, you won’t have to worry about missing out on even more money in taxes!

If you receive a rejection letter from the IRS saying that your tax payment was rejected, there are several things that you can do to try and resubmit the payment. First, make sure that all of the information on your tax return is correct. Second, make sure that all of the information on your payment form is correct. Third, make sure that the payment form and supporting documents are properly formatted and signed. Lastly, make sure that the payment is received by the IRS within 30 days of its original due date.
