The Notice of Intent to Assess is the most common communication taxpayers will receive out of the thousands of other notices and letters DOR sends out every year. Here are some things you should know about this notice in case one shows up in your mail box.

  • Take a deep breath. Many notices are simply asking for more information even though it may look like a bill.
  • Always follow the instructions for what you need to do about resolving the notice.
  • If you ignore the Notice of Intent to Assess, DOR assumes the assessed tax liability is correct and will then issue a tax bill.
