IRS Notice CP11

Changes to your Form 1040, Amount Due

Each year, millions of taxpayers are faced with a tax bill they can't afford to pay. If the IRS sends you a notice about an unpaid balance, the first thing to do is make sure the amount is correct. Let the experts at H&R Block research your balance to make sure you don't wind up paying more than you're required to pay.

What happened?

  1. When the IRS processed your tax return, it discovered a tax return processing error.
  2. The IRS corrected the tax miscalculation, and it resulted in additional taxes due.
  3. The IRS sent CP11 to inform you of the amount you now owe because of your return adjustment.

How can H&R Block help?

  • Occasionally, the IRS is missing information and sends CP11 notices in error. We'll look into the credit or deduction you claimed and confirm whether the notice is correct.
  • If the notice is correct and you can't afford to pay the amount, we'll see if you qualify for payment plan options.
