IRS letter

"Hi, Owner only DB plan received letter that his plan has been selected for examination. The exam seems to be just that the IRS did not get his EZ for 12,13, and 2019 (for location and date it says N/A). The agent says that he should file the missing EZs with the delq. program, however, it must be sent to the agent (as opposed to filing directly DELQ. program).
