Answers to Common Questions
What do I need to send?
If you believe we incorrectly applied the ban, you must provide documentation to show that you didn't intentionally disregard the EIC rules for the year we imposed the ban.
Can I file my tax return while I am being audited?
Yes, you should continue to file all required tax returns before the due date to avoid additional penalties and interest.
