Tax topic 201 means that you owe taxes for the year. The IRS will send you a letter and bill with an explanation on why you owe and how much. Best thing to do is call the IRS and speak to a representative there. They can answer your questions and let you know what you need to do. https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc201
