CP 2000 Question


Recommended Posts

I'm not exactly sure on handling this first-time issue which would have been a simple task if I was informed before client acted on his own.

Client received a CP 2000 that he failed to open immediately saying he owed $4,300.  When he did open it, he saw a due date of 1/26 so he mails off a check without contacting me.  He later emails me the top sheet so I responded asking for the rest of the notice and explained it may just be for a missing 1099B as he trades from time to time.  He said yes, there was a stock he forgot he sold in 22 that he previously thought was worth pennies.    Well, turns out the gain is $180, tax $27.  Now what do I do?  I thought of calling the hotline or filing a 1040X and include all this info in the explanation area.  He said why not put a stop on the check, something that did occur to me, but I thought that may just create another problem.

What do you think?  I hope this isn't a precursor to the season.

Thank you all,

Yes he did check the box, I asked that question wondering if he read the whole notice.   I’ll go ahead and tell him to stop the check and let him know about the penalty and take it from there.

Thanks to both of you for your help.
