What are the Types of IRS Notices?
IRS notices serve various purposes, including providing information, requesting additional information, or notifying taxpayers of changes or discrepancies in their tax returns. Here are some common types of IRS notices:
- CP Notices: These notices typically inform taxpayers about specific issues with their tax returns or accounts, such as balance due, overpayment, or unfiled returns.
- Letter 226J: This notice is sent to employers who may owe a shared responsibility payment under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
- Letter 1153: This notice informs business owners of a proposed Trust Fund Recovery Penalty assessment for unpaid employment taxes.
- Letter 3219: Also known as the Statutory Notice of Deficiency, it informs the taxpayer of the IRS’s intention to assess additional tax, penalties, and interest.
- Letter 2205-A: An examination notice that informs the taxpayer of an upcoming audit.
- Letter 531: A Notice of Deficiency that informs the taxpayer of proposed changes to their tax return due to unreported or underreported income, deductions, or credits.
- Notice CP 504: A notice of intent to levy, which is sent when the taxpayer has an outstanding balance that has not been paid after multiple notices.
- Notice CP 90/CP 297: A final notice of intent to levy, which notifies taxpayers that the IRS intends to seize their assets if they do not resolve their tax debt.
- Notice CP 2000: A notice of proposed changes to the taxpayer’s return, typically sent when the information reported on the tax return does not match the information reported by third parties, such as employers or financial institutions.
