Hi Granny,

Generally speaking, the IRS does not send out e-mail notifications. If you filed your taxes electronically, you might get a notice that the return was received, but that's about it (and that generally would come from the provided you used, such as Turbo Tax). This site gives you some more information.

The IRS requests that you forward the email to [email protected]
