What was the source of the email?   Who sent the email?   No one in this user forum has access to your account or your tax return, and we do not know anything about emails that you received.  Provide some details.

Maybe, Turbo Tax has sent out emails if you need to amend.  What is the error?

I received same notice.  However, my "issue" is "September 2021 Carryover Issue."

I had the exact same email. Unfortunately, the linked instructions are on how to file an amended return IF you were impacted by the error. It does not explain how to determine if you were impacted by the error and need to file an amended return or what exactly needs to be changed in the amended return. So, how do we figure that out?

OK. Shortly after posting my last comment, I decided to take the plunge and click on "Amend my Return" in Turbo tax, and one of the first screens asks "Why are you amending your return" and one of the options says "TurboTax Sent me an email" - if you click on that and answer the questions, it will walk you through the process.

Before you open the return save a PDF & .taxfile  for your records then open the return using the amendment process to allow the correction to be made.  Then see if there is a difference ... if you need further assistance contact TT support as directed :   https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/amend-tax-return/help/how-do-i-amend-my-return-to-fix-the-turbotax...

i doubt it. check with the irs. i don't think they do that. alternatively, you could respond and if they ask for ANY information, it's a scam and report it to irs

IRS couldn't confirm Sharon's identity (my wife, filed jointly) . They want her AGI as shown on our 1040, line 8:b. That an "ours", not just hers. Is that what I use?
