Return Information Notice - Code CF

We disallowed your Child and Dependent Care Expenses Credit because the social security numbers for your qualifying persons were:

  1. Not provided
  2. The same for both, or
  3. Your own social security number. You cannot use yourself to qualify for the credit.

Why did I receive this notice code?

You did not provide the social security number for each qualifying individual, or the number that you provided was not correct.

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, or you think we disallowed your credit in error, please send us both of the following:

  • A copy of the social security card for each of your qualifying individuals.
  • A copy of your Child and Dependent Care Expenses Credit, Form 3506.

    Note: if this is for tax year 2000, send us a corrected copy of your federal form 2441, Child and Dependent Care Expenses, or federal Schedule 2, Child and Dependent Care Expenses for Form 1040A Filers.

If you still disagree or do not understand our adjustments, please contact us.
