The IRS says I...

The IRS says I didn't file my 2016 taxes, but I show a payment through VISA to the US Treasury for the amount I show on my 1040. Can you help me?

Accountant's Assistant: The Financial Software Technician will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I filed through Turbo Tax online and the payment was charged to my visa account on 4/18/2017

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Financial Software Technician should be aware of?

Not to my knowledge

Hi. You simply need to reply to the notice you received (there should be an address on the notice) that the taxes were filed via turbotax on XX/XX/XXXX. Include the verification of acceptance and a documentation of the visa charge to US treasury.

...

I would send via certified mail OR if you want signature proof, use FedEx.

DId you see my answer? Do you have further questions?

...

You can, of course, go to https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript to see f there's a record of filing but if the system kicked out the notice to you it's highly doubtful that it would be there 9as that's the same system).

...

But again, with proof of payment, they CANNOT charge any penalties.

...

The two basic penalties that all IRS penalties fall into (unless fraud is suspected) are the late/non filing penalty and the under/non payment penalty, have as their basis "tax due."

...

So if you can show that the tax due was paid, they cannot charge a penalty. (0 x Y) = 0

...

Please let me know if you have further questions

So sorry, but this is what it is. To tell you something that is not true would be potentially damaging too you and a breach of ethics for me.
