As the IRS states, the tax code is a complex set of laws affecting virtually every American individual and business. Last year the IRS processed over 244 million tax returns and other documents. The volume is a tribute to the voluntary tax system as well as the IRS workforce.

The short answer is to not panic and correct the mistake.
