I got a CP05 notice from the IRS

by Intuit Updated 6 months ago

The CP05 notice means that the IRS is holding your refund until they can review and verify one or more of the following items on your return:

  • Your reported income
  • Tax withholding amounts
  • Tax credits claims
  • Social Security benefits withholdings
  • Household help claims
  • Schedule C income claims

You should hear from them within 60 days of receiving the CP05, but if you don't, please call the number on your notice.
