Return Information Notice - Code 09

We disallowed the contribution you requested because you have no credit available for the tax year.

Definition: A voluntary contribution is an election made by the taxpayer to designate amounts on his or her tax return to charitable funds.

Why did I receive this notice code?

Your tax return did not have an overpayment of tax to cover the voluntary contribution. This shortage may be the result of a revision we made on your return that changed the amount of overpaid tax.

What do I need to do?

Compare your return with our notice to see if there were any other revisions that may have reduced your overpayment.

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

If you do not agree, please contact us.
