The IRS uses Letter 2801C to inform you that they are overriding your selection of withholding exemptions on your Form W-4 with your employer.
Response to Letter 2801C
There could be several reasons why this has occurred. Often, it is because the IRS believes that you are not entitled to claim a certain number of exemptions or to claim exempt from withholding.
Usually, they direct your employer to withhold as though you were Single with zero dependents, using Letter 2800C.
If this is unacceptable, please follow the Prep Steps & call our office. We need to investigate why this has occurred and what steps to take to reverse this unilateral IRS decision.
