The IRS has notified me that it considers my 2018 return frivolous and will soon write me about it in more detail. I'm shocked and have no idea why this would have happened. I've reviewed my return as carefully as I could and find it very similar to prior returns, although those returns could, I suppose, also contain something the IRS considers frivolous.
I'd like to be prepared to deal with this. Although at this point I don't know what the so-called frivolousness consists of, how should I expect this to play itself out? Should I look for a tax advisor or a lawayer? I used Turbo Tax for my return and have for years. At Intuit they suggest that I wait and see.
