Answers to Common Questions

What should I do if I disagree with the changes you made?
If you disagree, contact us immediately at the toll-free number listed on the top right corner of your notice.

What happens if I can't pay the full amount I owe now?
See if you may be able to set up a payment plan through our Online Payment Agreement Application.

What happens if I don't respond to this notice?
If you don't pay the amount due or call us to make payment arrangements, we can file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien on your property at any time, if we haven't already done so. In addition, if you don't pay the amount you owe by the due date on the notice, interest will increase and additional penalties may apply.

If the lien is in place, you may find it difficult to sell or borrow against your property. The tax lien would also appear on your credit report ― which may harm your credit rating ― and your creditors would also be publicly notified that the IRS has priority to seize your property.

Am I charged interest on the money I owe?
Yes. You will continue to be charged interest on any outstanding balance until the amount is paid in full. See the Penalties section that starts on page 2 of the notice.

Will I receive a penalty if I can't pay the full amount?
Yes, you'll receive a late payment penalty. The failure to pay penalty continues to accrue until the amount you owe is paid in full. Contact us by the due date of your payment and, depending on your situation, we may be able to remove the penalty.

What if I need to make a correction to my tax return?
You'll need to file Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.

reduction contributions (employee-chosen contributions or elective deferrals) that your employer can make on your behalf under a SIMPLE plan are limited to $12,000 for 2013. 1040ez 2010 form printable

allowed to make them. 1040ez 2010 form printable Matching employer contributions limit. 1040ez 2010 form printable   Generally, your employer must make matching contributions to your SIMPLE IRA in an amount equal to your salary reduction contributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable These matching contributions cannot be more than 3% of your compensation for the calendar year. 1040ez 2010 form printable See Matching contributions less than 3% below. 1040ez 2010 form printable Example 1. 1040ez 2010 form printable In 2013, Joshua was a participant in his employer's SIMPLE plan. 1040ez 2010 form printable His compensation, before SIMPLE plan contributions, was $41,600 ($800 per week). 1040ez 2010 form printable Instead of taking it all in cash, Joshua elected to have 12. 1040ez 2010 form printable 5% of his weekly pay ($100) contributed to his SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable For the full year, Joshua's salary reduction contributions were $5,200, which is less than the $12,000 limit on these contributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable Under the plan, Joshua's employer was required to make matching contributions to Joshua's SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable Because his employer's matching contributions must equal Joshua's salary reductions, but cannot be more than 3% of his compensation (before salary reductions) for the year, his employer's matching contribution was limited to $1,248 (3% of $41,600). 1040ez 2010 form printable Example 2. 1040ez 2010 form printable Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Joshua's compensation for the year was $408,163 and he chose to have 2. 1040ez 2010 form printable 94% of his weekly pay contributed to his SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable In this example, Joshua's salary reduction contributions for the year (2. 1040ez 2010 form printable 94% × $408,163) were equal to the 2013 limit for salary reduction contributions ($12,000). 1040ez 2010 form printable Because 3% of Joshua's compensation ($12,245) is more than the amount his employer was required to match ($12,000), his employer's matching contributions were limited to $12,000. 1040ez 2010 form printable In this example, total contributions made on Joshua's behalf for the year were $24,000 ($12,000 (Joshua's contributions) + $12,000 (matching contributions)), the maximum contributions permitted under a SIMPLE IRA for 2013. 1040ez 2010 form printable Matching contributions less than 3%. 1040ez 2010 form printable   Your employer can reduce the 3% limit on matching contributions for a calendar year, but only if: The limit is not reduced below 1%, The limit is not reduced for more than 2 years out of the 5-year period that ends with (and includes) the year for which the election is effective, and Employees are notified of the reduced limit within a reasonable period of time before the 60-day election period during which they can enter into salary reduction agreements. 1040ez 2010 form printable   For purposes of applying the rule in item (2) in determining whether the limit was reduced below 3% for the year, any year before the first year in which your employer (or a former employer) maintains a SIMPLE IRA plan will be treated as a year for which the limit was 3%. 1040ez 2010 form printable If your employer chooses to make nonelective contributions for a year, that year also will be treated as a year for which the limit was 3%. 1040ez 2010 form printable Nonelective employer contributions limit. 1040ez 2010 form printable   If your employer chooses to make nonelective contributions, instead of matching contributions, to each eligible employee's SIMPLE IRA, contributions must be 2% of your compensation for the entire year. 1040ez 2010 form printable For 2013, only $255,000 of your compensation can be taken into account to figure the contribution limit. 1040ez 2010 form printable   Your employer can substitute the 2% nonelective contribution for the matching contribution for a year if both of the following requirements are met. 1040ez 2010 form printable Eligible employees are notified that a 2% nonelective contribution will be made instead of a matching contribution. 1040ez 2010 form printable This notice is provided within a reasonable period during which employees can enter into salary reduction agreements. 1040ez 2010 form printable Example 3. 1040ez 2010 form printable Assume the same facts as in Example 2 , except that Joshua's employer chose to make nonelective contributions instead of matching contributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable Because his employer's nonelective contributions are limited to 2% of up to $255,000 of Joshua's compensation, his employer's contribution to Joshua's SIMPLE IRA was limited to $5,100. 1040ez 2010 form printable In this example, total contributions made on Joshua's behalf for the year were $17,100 (Joshua's salary reductions of $12,000 plus his employer's contribution of $5,100). 1040ez 2010 form printable Traditional IRA mistakenly moved to SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable   If you mistakenly roll over or transfer an amount from a traditional IRA to a SIMPLE IRA, you can later recharacterize the amount as a contribution to another traditional IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable For more information, see Recharacterizations in chapter 1. 1040ez 2010 form printable Recharacterizing employer contributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable   You cannot recharacterize employer contributions (including elective deferrals) under a SEP or SIMPLE plan as contributions to another IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable SEPs are discussed in chapter 2 of Publication 560. 1040ez 2010 form printable SIMPLE plans are discussed in this chapter. 1040ez 2010 form printable Converting from a SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable   Generally, you can convert an amount in your SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA under the same rules explained in chapter 1 under Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA . 1040ez 2010 form printable    However, you cannot convert any amount distributed from the SIMPLE IRA during the 2-year period beginning on the date you first participated in any SIMPLE IRA plan maintained by your employer. 1040ez 2010 form printable When Can You Withdraw or Use Assets? Generally, the same distribution (withdrawal) rules that apply to traditional IRAs apply to SIMPLE IRAs. 1040ez 2010 form printable These rules are discussed in chapter 1. 1040ez 2010 form printable Your employer cannot restrict you from taking distributions from a SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable Are Distributions Taxable? Generally, distributions from a SIMPLE IRA are fully taxable as ordinary income. 1040ez 2010 form printable If the distribution is an early distribution (discussed in chapter 1), it may be subject to the additional tax on early distributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable See Additional Tax on Early Distributions, later. 1040ez 2010 form printable Rollovers and Transfers Exception Generally, rollovers and trustee-to-trustee transfers are not taxable distributions. 1040ez 2010 form printable Two-year rule. 1040ez 2010 form printable   To qualify as a tax-free rollover (or a tax-free trustee-to-trustee transfer), a rollover distribution (or a transfer) made from a SIMPLE IRA during the 2-year period beginning on the date on which you first participated in your employer's SIMPLE plan must be contributed (or transferred) to another SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable The 2-year period begins on the first day on which contributions made by your employer are deposited in your SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2010 form printable   After the 2-year period, amounts in a SIMPLE IRA can be rolled over or transferred tax free to an IRA other than a SIMPLE IRA, or to a qualified plan, a tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan), or deferred compensation plan of a state or local government (section 457 plan). 1040ez 2010 form printable Additional Tax on Early Distributions The additional tax on early distributions (discussed in chapter 1) applies to SIMPLE IRAs. 1040ez 2010 form printable If a distribution is an early distribution and occurs during the 2-year period following the date on which you first participated in your employer's SIMPLE plan, the additional tax on early distributions is increased from 10% to 25%. 1040ez 2010 form printable If a rollover distribution (or transfer) from a SIMPLE IRA does not satisfy the 2-year rule, and is otherwise an early distribution, the additional tax imposed because of the early distribution is increased from 10% to 25% of the amount distributed. 1040ez 2010 form printable Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
