If you purchased Audit Defense for your 2017 tax return, call TaxResources, Inc. at 877-829-9695, or report your IRS letter on their web site at http://intuit.taxaudit.com/. Do not contact the IRS until you have spoken to TaxResources. They may contact the IRS on your behalf.

 

If you did not purchase Audit Defense, you can get help with your IRS letter from TurboTax at the following link.

Read the IRS letter carefully to see which technicality they are after you for.

You may only need to prove that you actually paid tuition, with school statements and cancelled checks and/or bank or credit card statements. The IRS has begun cracking down on schools that send out a 1098-T with box 1 blank. They are no longer accepting an amount in box 2, of a 1098-T, as proof that you paid tuition.
