Return Information Notice - Code DT

We revised your Earned Income Tax Credit because one or more qualifying children exceed the age limit.

Why did I receive this notice code?
One or more of your qualifying children exceed the age limit. The qualifying child must be either:

  • Under age 19 at the end of the taxable year and younger than your or your spouse, if married/RDP filing jointly.
  • Under age 24 at the end of the taxable year, a student, and younger than your or your spouse, if married/RDP filing jointly.
  • Permanently and totally disabled at any time during the taxable year, regardless of age.

What do I need to do?
If you agree with our revisions, you do not need to contact us. Please update your records. If you have a revised balance due, please pay the amount due.

If you do not agree with our revisions, contact the Filing Compliance Bureau:
