Frequently asked questions
Why is my return being reviewed?
We select some returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately. This doesn’t mean you made an error or were dishonest. Please allow us 60 days to complete our review before contacting us.
What if I didn’t file the tax return?
Someone else may have filed it for you without your consent. Send us a completed and signed Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit (PDF). You may want to read our identity theft resource page for more information.
Tips for next year
- Review all of your income and withholding documents for completeness and review your return to make sure you are eligible to claim all income, credits and business income you reported
