So my wife got a CP59, which is a complaint from the IRS that she did not file her taxes for 2017. That year, as in years previous, we filed jointly and electronically. The year previous we had a new accountant. We did file late, but I think we do that every year with the appropriate extension.
What is weird is that I did not received a similar notice.
So my question is:
Is this a common/normal thing?
Is there something that we did "wrong" that triggered this event?
From the "frustration with the IRS" file, we filed electronically, and can do all kinds of things electronically, but we have to fill out form 15103 and mail it in?
For the record, the IRS on this Q&A suggests that they never make a mistake in this matter and basically tells you to file your taxes.
