For tax year 2006, I filed a 1041 for my Mom's estate. Paid the tax, check happily cashed by the IRS on 4/30/07, no questions asked, and I've got a copy of the return.

Got a letter today saying that they hadn't received a 1040 for her for tax year 2006.

Is there any chance on god's green earth that I will be able to clear this up with a phone call pointing out that a 1041 was filed and that is why there was no 1040?

Or am I looking at years of letters going back and forth on this?

Just need to know how much mental fortitude I'm going to need on this one.
