How can I make sure that past IRS errors have been corrected?

By Denise Appleby AAA
A:



It depends.

If these were Traditional IRA contributions, they may be reflected on your tax return. Otherwise, you may ask for written confirmation from the IRS that the errors were, in fact, corrected and that the corrections are now properly reflected on your records.
