Check the Status of Your Voluntary Correction Program Submission


How do I know if the IRS has received my VCP submission?

The IRS no longer mails acknowledgement letters to confirm receipt of your submission. When a VCP submission is successfully filed through the website, a “Payment Confirmation-Application for Voluntary Correction Program” email is generated and sent to the submitter.

The Tracking ID on this receipt serves as the IRS control number for your submission and is considered an official acknowledgment.

How do I check the status of my VCP submission?

You can check the status of your VCP submission, by calling the VCP Status Inquiry Line at 626-927-2011. Please leave a message that includes:

  1. Your name and phone number
  2. Applicant name
  3. EIN
  4. Plan name 
  5. Control number (i.e.  8 Digit Tracking ID)
