What you must do

  • Return the stub in the envelope enclosed with the notice.
  • Make sure the IRS address shows through the window of the envelope.

If we don’t hear from you within 30 days from the date of this notice, your account will reflect incomplete information.we’ll process your return without the information. This could result in your account having additional penalties and interest assessed.
