Question on Taxes - need help

I traded all last year full time and I lost money. I am doing this full time and listed my profession as trader. I received a notice from the IRS today that I owe them $5000. The IRS sent me printouts from my Interactive Brokers account. Could somebody recommend a professional to help me straighten this out? Do I need to find a trading accountant?
