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.
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 resources page while we review your Form 14039.
If you haven't received your refund or heard from us after 60 days, you can call us at 800-829-1040.
