If the IRS sends you a notice requesting additional documentation for your tax returns, first, you have to make sure that there is no math error or accidental mistake in the amount shown on the notice. There are many cases, where the IRS sends tax audit notices that are the result of a mathematical error.
If you actually owe additional tax to the IRS, and you can afford to pay your tax liability, you may send a payment for the amount you owe. You may write a letter and request an abatement of the penalties for the amount you paid. Sometimes, the IRS writes off the penalties. See IRS Audit Advice.
