- The CP2000 notice is issued from an Austin, Texas address
- The letter says the issue is related to the Affordable Care Act and requests information regarding your 2014 health care coverage
- The payment voucher lists the letter number as 105C
- The letter requests that checks be made payable to the I.R.S. and sent to the “Austin Processing Center” at a post office box.
A notice you receive from the IRS labeled as CP2000 may be legitimate, however, as this is a notice number routinely used by the IRS when income reported from a third-party source, like an employer, does not match the income reported on your tax return. A real notice will give extensive instructions on what to do if you agree or disagree with the notice. Additionally, a legitimate notice will request payment made to the United States Treasury, not I.R.S.
