I got a CP05 notice from the IRS
If you got a notice from the IRS, don’t worry. We’ll do our best to help you figure out what to do next.
The CP05 notice means that the IRS is holding your refund until they review and verify the following information from your return:
- Your reported income
- Tax withholding amounts
- Tax credits claims
- Social Security benefits withholdings
- Household help claims
- Schedule C income claims
If you haven’t heard from the IRS within 45 days of getting your notice, you can call the number on your notice.
