hi. I received a cp59 on wednesday and called to get a transcript for 2013.
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago
This letter is sent because IRS has no record of receiving a tax return for this year. The code 38 is a note regarding backup withholding.You should check your records for a copy of your return for 2013. Check with your state too. A filed state return copy will support completing a return with the same deductions.Your IMF has the tax return codes, and history. You might also ask for your 2013 wage and income transcript so you can prepare a return if needed.I hope that covers things. Ask if you need more assistance. If this answers your questions, please rate my assistance with positive feedback. Five stars is best. I'mCustomer

i didn't file for that year because I thought I was under the non filing income threshold. does a transcript include a wage and income transcript.
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago
The IMF is different. Ask for both. You can get it online at IRS.gov.

select code 38 on the cp 59 means they acquired info from a third party like a bank?
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago
More like you received some income without regular tax withholding, so backup withholding may have been appropriate or even applied. That will be on the transcript.

who ever paid you might have withheld.

the cp 59 address is from austin texas irs collection center. so am i on the radar for immediate collections and seizers
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago
No. There needs to be a tax assessed first. They can't collect without a balance due. Simply file a return or confirm you didn't need to file.

okay i'll wait for the income transcript. they are obligated to show all itemized income sources correct?
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago
Income that is reported to them only.
