Answers to Common Questions

Why is my return being reviewed?
While most returns are accepted as filed, some are selected for examination. The IRS examines some federal tax returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately. The IRS selects returns for examination using various methods which include random sampling, computerized screening, and comparison of information received by the IRS such as Forms W-2 and 1099. Having your return selected for examination does not suggest that you made an error or were dishonest.

What if I did not file a tax return claiming the items you are questioning and someone else is using my name and social security number?
Send us a completed and signed Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit. You can download this form online at www.irs.gov. You can also refer to the IRS Identity Theft resource page for more information.
