The IRS uses Letter 86C for correspondence of general information. It is usually used to inform you that the IRS is transferring your file to another office. But, don't depend on the other office to contact you. You must follow up with the IRS.

This is very frustrating but don't get discouraged! You must be patient with the government. Since you cannot depend on the IRS to be prompt you should call them at 1-800-829-1040 every two months for a status report.
You could get the Taxpayer Advocate involved if necessary.
Our job is to determine what is the underlying issue which the IRS is examining. From there, we can gather the documents & information to present you with an Action Plan so you can make wiser decisions.
