Return Information Notice - Code 04

We applied the overpayment on your return to another tax year or a taxpayer penalty on your account.

Why did I receive this notice code?

We transferred all or part of your overpayments from this tax return to a balance due on your account.

What do I need to do?

Use our Payment and Balance Due tool to:

  • Find out what the new balance is on the underpaid tax year.
  • View your payments.

If you agree with our revision, you do not need to contact us. Please update your records.

If you agree with the revision and the tax year with a balance due remains unpaid, please pay the remaining amount to limit penalty and interest charges.

If you do not agree, please contact us.
