My brother finally got a tax refund from his 2020 return and has several questions about it. (For instance they have mis-calculated he and his wife’s covid monies, and other similar issues.)
I don’t know the exact figures, but this will be close enough. The check is in the amount of $7,000. He thinks it should be $9,000. If he cashes the $7,000 check, does that mean he has “accepted” the IRS figures and can go no further, or can he cash it but continue to dispute their calculations and other errors?
