Question: I received a letter from the IRS indicating that due to my misprint of my daughter's social security number, my claim for her dependency exemption was denied. Can I correct it to receive the exemption?
If you're entitled to the exemption because your child qualifies as your dependent, you may protest the denial of the exemption. To correct your return, you must give us your daughter's correct name, social security number, and date of birth. Call the phone number listed in the upper right-hand corner of your letter to request the correction, or mail the correct information with a copy of the IRS letter in the envelope provided.
