Today’s Fact Check looks at notices showing up in the mail that say you owe money to the IRS.

Our Fact Check question asks: Are these notices legit or is this a scam?

The KRIS 6 Fact Check team looked into this and it turns out, this is a FACT.

The IRS is currently mailing out notices to people who filed their tax returns on time, but didn’t pay what they owed.

They’re called a CP-14 or CP- 501 notice, the IRS mails them out around this time of the year to notify taxpayers that they have a balance due.
