IRS Notice Letter 1615

Mail us your Overdue Tax Return

Many situations can lead to an IRS notice about unfiled tax returns. Perhaps your return hasn't been processed yet, and the IRS sent the tax return not filed notice in error. Maybe something prevented you from filing your return this year. Whatever the case, H&R Block will help you get the issue straightened out and make sure the problem doesn't get worse.

What happened?

  1. The IRS never received a tax return from you for the year specified.
  2. The IRS sent you previous notices asking you to address an unfiled tax return, but never received a response.
  3. You received IRS Notice Letter 1615 to let you know you have 10 days to file your unsent tax returns. If you don't, the IRS will file a tax return for you, potentially including penalties and interest.

How can H&R Block help?

  • It's extremely important to file tax returns. When the IRS calculates the taxes you owe, it does so at the highest tax rate and with no deductions. We'll help you gather the necessary information and send in your overdue tax return.
  • Sometimes, the IRS is missing information. If you think you filed a tax return, but received this letter in error, come into a tax office and we will contact the IRS to research your account.
  • If penalties have been assessed, come into a tax office and we will see whether you qualify to have them removed.
