Frequently asked questions

What if I have already filed this return?

  • Please send a newly signed copy to the address shown on the top of your notice.
  • Due to processing delays for 2019 and 2020 tax returns, the issuance of CP80 and CP080 (Unfiled Tax Return – Credit on Account) notices has been suspended. If you received a notice for your 2019 return and you filed timely, please refile the return. If you received a notice for your 2020 return DO NOT refile.

What if I want the credit transferred to another tax form, tax period or tax identification number?

Please call us at 800-829-8374 to give us details of the account to which the credit should be transferred.
