Q: What should i do!
A: Contact the IRS at 1-***-***-**** and let them know what has happened. They should be able to correct the situation. You may have to complete some paperwork in order for them to correct the matter though. Be prepared to be on hold for a while though.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter.
Thanks - my friend is telling me that if I just pay online without the right paperwork they will just return my payment?
I don't see a specific number to call for IRS Direct Pay. However, I would call them because who knows, the social that you entered could belong to someone else and your money gets credited to their account. I would not assume that they will automatically send the funds back to you.
