I am going to explain to you what most IRS letters mean and the reason that they are sent.

CP14 – BalanceDue
This is normally the first collection letter that you will recieve. Normally, the IRS will send you this notice if you have a balance that is owed from a tax return. This bill will normally include the amount you owe minus what you have paid and any penalties and interest that have been added as well.

CP501-Balance Due (1st Reminder)
This will be the first reminder that the IRS sends to you expressing that you have an upaid balance. This will be similar to the CP14.

CP503 –  Balance Due(2nd Reminder)
This is the 2nd notice that the IRS will send to you on an oustand balance owed to the IRS. It will look similar to the CP501 and is usually send 30days from the notice of the CP501.
