Code 151 1242 help

Code 151 means its being reviewed and that you may owe.

Code 1242 means they are going to need something from you like proof of a birth certificate on a dependent or foster care papers etc.

The IRS will send you a letter with the specifics.

Don't worry. These letters are very common, particularly this tax season. TurboTax has your back.
