The income or payment information we have on file doesn’t match the information you reported on your tax return. This discrepancy may cause an increase or decrease in your tax, or may not change it at all.
Answers to common questions
Why did I receive the notice?
We received information from a third party (such as employers or financial institutions) that doesn’t match the information you reported on your tax return.
Is the notice a bill?
No, the notice is a proposal and informs you about the information we have received, and how it affects your tax.
What do I need to do?
Complete the notice Response form. (Follow the notice instructions if your notice doesn’t have a Response form.)
What do I do if the information is wrong or if I disagree?
The notice Response form has instructions on what to do if the new information is wrong. You also may want to contact whoever reported the information and ask them to correct it.
