The CP-23 and What It Means For You

CP-23 Notice
You filed your tax return on time and might even be eagerly anticipating a refund. Instead of getting a check in the mail, you find a CP-23 Notice. Notices from the IRS are scary, but they shouldn't be ignored. If you have a CP-23, you need to get informed and make an action plan. This article will help you understand what your CP-23 means for you and what you can do.

What Is a CP-23?

A CP-23 Notice is how the IRS lets you know that they looked at your tax return and they don't feel you did it correctly. A CP-23 assesses you with a balance due and should credit you with any payments you have already made. It also gives you an opportunity to disagree within 60 days. If you don't contact the IRS to dispute the balance due on your CP-23 Notice during that time frame, it is the same as agreeing with it. Now that you understand what your CP-23 Notice means, you need to plan your course of action.

If You Disagree with Your CP-23

  1. Review your tax return and compare it to what the CP-23 claims it should say.
  2. Gather together documentation proving the balance due on the notice is incorrect.
  3. Contact the IRS with a detailed explanation on why you disagree or partially disagree.
  4. Provide as much paperwork as you can to back up your argument against the CP-23.

If You Agree with Your CP-23

  1. Figure out if you can pay the entire balance due by the deadline given on the CP-23.
  2. If you can do so, pay by the date on your CP-23. It will save you in the long run.
  3. If you cannot do so, figure out how much time you need to get the funds.
  4. If you can pay the whole balance within 120 days, apply for an extension to pay.
  5. If you think it will take longer, enter into an Installment Agreement.

You may want to consult a tax professional before making a decision about how to respond to your CP-23 Notice. You may have missed something vital on your original return that could help you dispute the balance on the CP-23 Notice. If you do owe the assessment on the CP-23, a tax professional can help you figure out the best way to handle the tax debt. Do your research and get an expert opinion on what is the best approach regarding your CP-23.
