Return Information Notice - Code JD

We revised or disallowed your Joint Custody Head of Household Credit because; (1.) your filing status was not single or married filing separately, or (2.) the amount was more than the allowable amount based on your tax liability.

Why did I receive this notice code?

Your tax return was filed using a filing status other than Single or Married Filing Separately. You may not claim this credit if you used either the Head of Household or Qualifying Widow(er) filing status.

The credit may also have been revised to the maximum allowable amount based on your tax liability.

The code for this credit is 170.

What do I need to do?

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

If you do not agree with our revisions, please contact us.
