CP161 IRS Notice

BALANCE DUE – REQUST FOR PAYMENT OR NOTICE OF UNPAID BALANCE

Why did I receive a CP 161 IRS Notice?
The IRS sends taxpayers a CP 161 IRS Notice when they have a tax balance due after the IRS has calculated your income, expenses and tax credits which you filed on your return.
What should I do?
You should open and carefully read the CP 161 IRS Notice right away. Make sure the payments the IRS have on file match up with your records. Often times the IRS will mishandle your payments and apply them to a wrong year, which can create the unpaid balance. If everything is correct make sure to contact the IRS or pay the balance in full.
What can I do if I disagree with the notice?
You should right away contact the IRS using the toll free number provided on the CP 161 IRS Notice you received. The IRS will require you to mail in the documentation backing up any claims you make, so make sure to have the proper documentation and financial records ready.
Will the IRS charge me penalties and interest on the liability?
The IRS will not charge you any penalties and interest if you pay the full amount before the date on your CP 161 IRS Notice. If you fail to pay, the IRS will assess penalties and interest to the remaining liability on your CP 161 IRS Notice. In some cases the IRS will abate taxpayer’s penalties, to learn more about penalty abatement, click here.
