Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. What the IRS did is the prepared a SFR (substitute for return) since you did not file the original return. When they do this the IRS assumes the worst case (all income with zero deductions).
What you need to do is to obtain a copy of your tax transcript. Next, you would need to file an amended return to correct the income and deductions.
You would need to file a 1040X to correct the amounts with the IRS.
