I received a letter CP2000 from IRS for tax year 2015 - What should I do?

You need to review the notice and make sure whether you agree or disagree with the letter. CP2000 letters are sent when the IRS finds that there was a 1099, W2, or 1098 that they received which doesn't agree with the income or deductions reported on your return.

See the following from IRS - Understanding Your CP2000:

What you need to do
  • Read your notice carefully—it explains the information we received and how it affects your tax return.
  • Complete the notice response form whether or not you agree or disagree with the notice, the response form explains what actions to take. (Your specific notice may not have a response form. In that case, the notice will have instructions on what to do).
  • Contact the business or person reporting the information, if it is wrong. Ask them to correct it, and then provide the corrected information to us.
