What is IRS letter 4883C?

Asked by: tmoran 4794 views YA Discussion

My correspondence letter from the IRS is entitled “LTR 4883C”…I cannot find anything about that form on the IRS website, and it basically just says I have to call a phone number because they need more information and cannot process my refund without it…?? Also says to have my 2010 taxes “ready” when I call…am I being audited?
Oh, OK, that makes sense…I recently had a somewhat strange name change. I went back to my maiden name due to a divorce and then also had my name changed to just my first initial and last name because I’ve gone by my middle name since I was in 3rd grade. Figured I might as well do it all at once. Would that potentially trigger this audit, even though it’s court approved and appointed? I have all of the back-up documentation (obviously), and I’ve even already got a new Social Security Card and Driver’s license.
I did get a new job last year as well, but the name change was also completed in July of 2011…will I just need to call and verify my information and the return will be processed? I e-filed and used the Turbo-Tax thing offered by the gov’t. I’m a student with 18 credit hours and 2 part-time jobs…made a whopping grand total of something like $ 20,000 so can’t imagine they think my refund is too high!

    Not good.

    The reason for having the 2010 return handy is to answer questions and prove you are who you say you are.

    The fact the IRS doesn’t think it’s you that filed your return is troubling. Either you moved, had a new employer or they think you filed a fraudulent return and your refund is too big.
