Letter 6312

If you receive the Letter 6312, it means that the IRS was unable to process your return for one of the following reasons:

  • Missing information
  • Incorrect information
  • Computational errors

Don’t panic, the IRS will indicate the exact reason for your rejection, so you won’t have to guess. This letter will also provide information on the next steps for re-submitting your Form 7200. 

Letter 6313

If you get a Letter 6313 from the IRS, they need written confirmation that the address you listed on your Form 7200 is your current mailing address. The good news is that you can fix this fairly easily. 

You basically have 2 options here. 

Option 1: The address that you listed is your current address. Simply check the box on your Letter 6313 and mail it back to the IRS. It is VERY important that you respond to this, otherwise the IRS will not process your Form 7200

Option 2: This is not your business’ current address. You will need to change the address that the IRS has on file by filing the Form 8822-B, Change of Address of Responsible Party-Business. Simply complete and sign this form, then submit it to the IRS. They will send your payment to this address.
