CP2000 Billing Notice ID#2001

The Internal Revenue Service has reported to us that you did not report all of the income that you earned on the return you originally filed. The IRS has already notified you regarding your federal return. We have compared the Federal and Ohio filings and have identified that you have not amended your Ohio return to correct the discrepancy. The notice corrects the discrepancy. You must submit additional information and/or payment within 30 days from the date on the notice to the Ohio Dept. of Taxation, Billing, P.O. Box 182401, Columbus, Ohio 43218-2401, fax: 1-614-387-1849.

Contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to obtain a Tax Account Transcript for comparison. You may also order a Tax Account Transcript electronically by visiting the IRS Website. If the tax account transcript is different from this notice, provide a copy of the transcript and the notice.

The adjustment(s) on the notice were not earned or received in Ohio.

Provide the W2, 1099, and/or documentation and an explanation regarding the source of the adjustment(s).

 I am a resident of another state.

Ohio law provides that income earned or received from an Ohio source is taxable to Ohio. Residency, in this case, has no effect on the taxability of the income.

 

I agree with the adjustments, however, have additional adjustments to report.

Provide an amended Ohio tax return, accompanying schedules and supporting documentation such as W2, 1099, other states W2, 1099, and/or returns.          

I cannot pay this bill in full at this time.

Ohio law does not authorize the Department of Taxation to set up a payment plan. We will apply partial payments to the outstanding balance. However, partial payments will not stop the imposition of additional interest or the referral of the account to the Attorney General's Office (collection agent for the State of Ohio). You must submit information and/or payment within 30 days from the date on the notice to the Ohio Dept. of Taxation, Billing, P.O. Box 182401, Columbus, Ohio 43218-2401
