I got a 5071C letter from the IRS

If you got a letter from the IRS, don’t worry. We’ll do our best to help you figure out what to do next.

The 5071C letter means that the IRS has received your return, but needs more information from you to verify your identity.

You can do either of the following:

(For either option, you’ll need a copy of your prior year tax return, current return, and supporting documents like W-2s, 1099s, or Schedule C).

If you didn’t file the return in question, choose either option to notify the IRS.
