      We have numerous trust clients who are receiving letters from the IRS regarding their 2019 balance due on return. The letters state they haven’t received the payment (some of these were paid with a check in April – still not cleared), others were waiting until 7/15 to pay. Due dates range from 6/10 to 6/22. Is anyone else having this issue?
      What do you propose for uncleared checks? Clients do not want to write another check (they normally do not owe trust taxes).
      Any comments greatly appreciated.

      This has been a systemic problem as the IRS was not handling paper due to COVID-19. It is my understanding they are aware of the problem and have begun processing paper filings. I would encourage your clients to NOT send another check. You may want to respond to the letters with a copy of the check and proof of timely mailing.
