The IRS says take action tax topic 151 your appeal rights

It sounds like you received and letter from the IRS proposing an adjustment to your tax return.  First you need to determine if the IRS is correct.  This is often the case due to not including a W-2, or a 1099-DIV, etc. that you may not have received in the mail. If you determine that the IRS is correct, then you simply need to pay (if you owe) or if the change benefits you, agree with the change and they will send you a refund.  If you disagree with the IRS, you should notify them in writing.  For help resolving the issue go to Contact Us Re IRS Letter.

I got the same message and I'm sure it's about taxes on unemployment benefits. Will they just take out what I owe and send the rest?

@mandymartini I got tax topic 151 no reference codes and only received a small portion of my refund. I call everyday and they keep telling me I’m not being reviewed- yet I didn’t get my full refund. They also say no letter has been generated. Smh this is crazy

Why do you say if could be a dividend? I’ve not found anything supporting that but we were flagged with a TT 151 and we did forget a dividend. Looking for proof please.

@DDollar  Can you please explain how it could be a dividend? I ask because we were flagged with a TT 151. And we forgot a dividend. But I’ve not seen any posts anywhere stating that’s the case.

Please click Topic No. 151 Your Appeal Rights to learn more.

 

The IRS works with taxpayers to try to settle tax disputes in an effort to avoid court proceedings through an administrative appeals process. The role of the Office of Appeals (Appeals) is to make an independent review of a tax dispute and to consider the positions taken by both the taxpayer and the IRS. Appeals strive to resolve tax disputes in a fair way and remain impartial to both parties.

 

The IRS will send you a report and/or letter that will explain the proposed adjustments or proposed or taken collection action. The correspondence also tells you of your right to request a conference with an Appeals or Settlement Officer, as well as how to make your request for a conference. In addition to examination adjustments, many other things can be appealed, such as penalties, interest, trust fund recovery penalties, liens, levies, and offers in compromise. If you request an Appeals conference, be prepared to support your position with records and documentation.
