No action is required at this time. The review process could take anywhere from 45 to 60 days, as the IRS could be reviewing various issues such as wages and withholding, or credits or expenses shown on your tax return.
If, after 60 days from the date of this notice, you have not received your refund or heard from the IRS, contact the IRS at the toll-free number listed at the top right corner of your notice.
If the entries reported on your return cannot be verified, you may be asked to submit documents verifying your wages and withholding that were reported.
Once the IRS finishes its review, it may send your refund, ask for additional information, or deny all or part of your refund. If you don’t agree with the denial, you’ll have an opportunity to appeal.
If you made an error on your return or need to change the information reported, you should file a
Form 1040-X , Amended U.S Individual Income Tax Return.
Once you have successfully verified the entries on your tax return, it may take up to nine weeks for you to receive your refund or apply the overpayment to next year’s estimated tax. However, if there are other issues, you may receive a notice asking for more information, and this may delay your refund.
