Return Information Notice - Code DP

We disallowed your Dependent Parent Credit because:

  1. You claimed the Joint Custody Head of Household Credit (you cannot claim both credits), or
  2. Your filing status was not married filing separately.

Why did I receive this notice code?

You either:

  • Claimed both the Joint Custody Head of Household Credit and the Dependent Parent Credit on your tax return. Taxpayers can claim either the Dependent Parent Credit or the Joint Custody Head of Household Credit, but not both. Or,
  • You filed your return using a filing status other than married filing separately. You must be married and use the married filing separately filing status to qualify for this credit.

What do I need to do?
