The IRS uses Notices CP54B (below), as well as CP54E, CP54G, & CP54Q to tell you they will not send you a refund. They believe that a social security number on your return is different than the IRS file. Notice CP54B & Notice CP54G involve the tax return - Form 1040. Notice CP54E states that your social security number differs from the records for estimated tax payments. Notice CP54Q is a follow-up notice if you have not responded to the previous notices.
Respond to Notice CP54
Essentially, you must discover which social security number the IRS alleges is wrong. Therefore, you may have to go to your nearest Social Security office to obtain information. Often, the problem is because one spouse changed names upon marriage. The IRS provides a Response Form for you to disclose your position. To start, please also provide all the documentation, social security cards, etc, you have on the issue.
