IRS Notice CP49 – Tax Return Processing

When part or all of a taxpayer’s expected refund is used to settle an unpaid tax bill or other overdue taxes, they are sent IRS Notice CP49.

Why Did I Receive IRS Notice CP49?

Because you previously filed taxes but did not pay your tax balance in full, you received IRS Notice CP49. You were owed a refund when you submitted your taxes for the current tax year. Your tax refund was used in full or in part to settle any outstanding tax debts or other debt to the government.

What You Can do?

Carefully read your CP49 notification. It will indicate the total of your initial refund, the amount that was used to pay off your tax liability, and any remaining balance.

If You Accept the Notice:

  • Nothing more is necessary. The IRS will mail you your leftover refund in a few weeks if there is any.
  • A copy of the notice should be kept for your records.

If You Disagree with the Notice:

  • Contact the IRS at the number provided at the top of your notice if you disagree with the notice. Before you call, be prepared with a copy of the CP49 notice, your return(s), and any necessary supporting documents.
  • Get in touch with a tax expert. Depending on your situation, you can qualify for a number of tax relief programs.
