Can anyone advise on 2019 tax payment that accidently was applied to 2020 estimated tax payment?

I may have included the wrong voucher.  Ive confirmed the IRS received the payment and cashed the check.  They show estimated tax payed for 2020 but nothing paid for tax owed in 2019

Your best bet is to contact the IRS and see if they can re-apply the payment, as it appears you accidentally misapplied the payment.  When you call, be sure you have the information of the payment in question in hand so that they can find the payment and assist you in re-applying it.

To call the IRS:IRS:  800-829-1040  hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Mon-Fri

Listen to each menu before making the selection.

First choose your language. Press 1 for English.

Then do NOT choose the first choice re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.

Instead, press 2 for "personal income tax".

Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".  

Then press 3 "for all other questions."

Then press 2 "for all other questions."  It should then transfer you to an agent.
