Understanding Your CP75 Notice

We’re auditing your tax return and we need documentation to verify the Earned Income Credit (EIC) that you claimed. The Earned Income Credit and/or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) portion(s) of your refund is being held pending the results of the audit.


What you need to do

  • Read the notice and the enclosed forms carefully. They explain the information you must send to us.
  • Provide copies of the documentation we request to verify the items that we are auditing.
  • Complete the response form by indicating which items your supporting documentation addresses and return the form with the documents you are submitting.

You may want to

  • Review this notice with your tax preparer.
  • Call us for assistance at the toll-free telephone number listed in the top right corner of your notice.
  • Review the rules for claiming the Earned Income Credit and make sure that your child meets the four tests: the Relationship, Age, Residency and Joint Return tests, to qualify for the credit. Read more about the qualifying child rules.
  • Find out if you can claim the Earned Income credit if you do not have a qualifying child. Find the rules for those without a qualifying child here.

Answers to Common Questions

Why was my return selected for audit?
While most returns are accepted as filed, some are selected for examination. The IRS examines (or audits) some federal tax returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately. The IRS selects returns for examination using various methods which include random sampling, computerized screening, and comparison of information received by the IRS such as Forms W-2 and 1099. Having your return selected for examination does not suggest that you made an error or were dishonest.

Can I claim the Earned Income Credit for my fiancé’s child?
No. You must be married to the child’s parent during the tax year in question to receive the credit.

What do I need to send?
Please refer to the Form 886-H we sent with your notice. There is a separate form for each item being audited that explains what supporting documentation to send.

What if I can’t provide the requested documentation?
We will disallow the items being audited and send you an examination report that shows the proposed changes to your tax return.

What if I did not file a tax return claiming the items you are questioning and someone else is using my name and social security number?
Contact us at the number listed on the top right corner of your notice. You can also refer to the IRS Identity Theft resource page for more information.

Can I file my tax return while I am being audited?
Yes, you should continue to file all required tax returns before the due date to avoid additional penalties and interest.


Tips for next year

Avoid errors that can delay your refund or result in the IRS denying your EIC claim. Find out the most common errors in claiming EITC here.

H and r free How Do I Figure a Gain or Loss?Is My Gain or Loss Ordinary or Capital? Is My Capital Gain or Loss Short Term or Long Term? Where Do I Report Gains and Losses? Introduction If you dispose of business property, you may have a gain or loss that you report on Form 1040. H and r free However, in some cases you may have a gain that is not taxable or a loss that is not deductible. H and r free This chapter discusses whether you have a disposition, how to figure the gain or loss, and where to report the gain or loss. H and r free Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets Form (and Instructions) 4797 Sales of Business Property Sch D (Form 1040) Capital Gains and Losses See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. H and r free What Is a Disposition of Property? A disposition of property includes the following transactions. H and r free You sell property for cash or other property. H and r free You exchange property for other property. H and r free You receive money as a tenant for the cancellation of a lease. H and r free You receive money for granting the exclusive use of a copyright throughout its life in a particular medium. H and r free You transfer property to satisfy a debt. H and r free You abandon property. H and r free Your bank or other financial institution forecloses on your mortgage or repossesses your property. H and r free Your property is damaged, destroyed, or stolen, and you receive property or money in payment. H and r free Your property is condemned, or disposed of under the threat of condemnation, and you receive property or money in payment. H and r free For details about damaged, destroyed, or stolen property, see Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts. H and r free For details about other dispositions, see chapter 1 in Publication 544. H and r free Nontaxable exchanges. H and r free   Certain exchanges of property are not taxable. H and r free This means any gain from the exchange is not recognized and you cannot deduct any loss. H and r free Your gain or loss will not be recognized until you sell or otherwise dispose of the property you receive. H and r free Like-kind exchanges. H and r free   A like-kind exchange is the exchange of property for the same kind of property. H and r free It is the most common type of nontaxable exchange. H and r free To be a like-kind exchange, the property traded and the property received must be both of the following. H and r free Business or investment property. H and r free Like property. H and r free   Report the exchange of like-kind property on Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges. H and r free For more information about like-kind exchanges, see chapter 1 in Publication 544. H and r free Installment sales. H and r free   An installment sale is a sale of property where you receive at least one payment after the tax year of the sale. H and r free If you finance the buyer's purchase of your property, instead of having the buyer get a loan or mortgage from a third party, you probably have an installment sale. H and r free   For more information about installment sales, see Publication 537, Installment Sales. H and r free Sale of a business. H and r free   The sale of a business usually is not a sale of one asset. H and r free Instead, all the assets of the business are sold. H and r free Generally, when this occurs, each asset is treated as being sold separately for determining the treatment of gain or loss. H and r free   Both the buyer and seller involved in the sale of a business must report to the IRS the allocation of the sales price among the business assets. H and r free Use Form 8594, Asset Acquisition Statement Under Section 1060, to provide this information. H and r free The buyer and seller should each attach Form 8594 to their federal income tax return for the year in which the sale occurred. H and r free   For more information about the sale of a business, see chapter 2 of Publication 544. H and r free How Do I Figure a Gain or Loss? Table 3-1. H and r free How To Figure a Gain or Loss IF your. H and r free . H and r free . H and r free THEN you have a. H and r free . H and r free . H and r free Adjusted basis is more than the amount realized Loss. H and r free Amount realized is more than the adjusted basis Gain. H and r free Basis, adjusted basis, amount realized, fair market value, and amount recognized are defined next. H and r free You need to know these definitions to figure your gain or loss. H and r free Basis. H and r free   The cost or purchase price of property is usually its basis for figuring the gain or loss from its sale or other disposition. H and r free However, if you acquired the property by gift, inheritance, or in some way other than buying it, you must use a basis other than its cost. H and r free For more information about basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. H and r free Adjusted basis. H and r free   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other basis plus certain additions, and minus certain deductions such as depreciation and casualty losses. H and r free In determining gain or loss, the costs of transferring property to a new owner, such as selling expenses, are added to the adjusted basis of the property. H and r free Amount realized. H and r free   The amount you realize from a disposition is the total of all money you receive plus the fair market value of all property or services you receive. H and r free The amount you realize also includes any of your liabilities that were assumed by the buyer and any liabilities to which the property you transferred is subject, such as real estate taxes or a mortgage. H and r free Fair market value. H and r free   Fair market value is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither having to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of all necessary facts. H and r free Amount recognized. H and r free   Your gain or loss realized from a disposition of property is usually a recognized gain or loss for tax purposes. H and r free Recognized gains must be included in gross income. H and r free Recognized losses are deductible from gross income. H and r free However, a gain or loss realized from certain exchanges of property is not recognized. H and r free See  Nontaxable exchanges, earlier. H and r free Also, you cannot deduct a loss from the disposition of property held for personal use. H and r free Is My Gain or Loss Ordinary or Capital? You must classify your gains and losses as either ordinary or capital gains or losses. H and r free You must do this to figure your net capital gain or loss. H and r free Generally, you will have a capital gain or loss if you dispose of a capital asset. H and r free For the most part, everything you own and use for personal purposes or investment is a capital asset. H and r free Certain property you use in your business is not a capital asset. H and r free A gain or loss from a disposition of this property is an ordinary gain or loss. H and r free However, if you held the property longer than 1 year, you may be able to treat the gain or loss as a capital gain or loss. H and r free These gains and losses are called section 1231 gains and losses. H and r free For more information about ordinary and capital gains and losses, see chapters 2 and 3 in Publication 544. H and r free Is My Capital Gain or Loss Short Term or Long Term? If you have a capital gain or loss, you must determine whether it is long term or short term. H and r free Whether a gain or loss is long or short term depends on how long you own the property before you dispose of it. H and r free The time you own property before disposing of it is called the holding period. H and r free Table 3-2. H and r free Do I Have a Short-Term or Long-Term Gain or Loss? IF you hold the property. H and r free . H and r free . H and r free THEN you have a. H and r free . H and r free . H and r free 1 year or less Short-term capital gain or loss. H and r free More than 1 year Long-term capital gain or loss. H and r free For more information about short-term and long-term capital gains and losses, see chapter 4 of Publication 544. H and r free Where Do I Report Gains and Losses? Report gains and losses from the following dispositions on the forms indicated. H and r free The instructions for the forms explain how to fill them out. H and r free Dispositions of business property and depreciable property. H and r free   Use Form 4797. H and r free If you have taxable gain, you may also have to use Schedule D (Form 1040). H and r free Like-kind exchanges. H and r free   Use Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges. H and r free You may also have to use Form 4797 and Schedule D (Form 1040). H and r free Installment sales. H and r free   Use Form 6252, Installment Sale Income.
