Received the dreaded 420 audit code and just got the cp75 letter for dependents. Anyone else gotten this and what was the process and wait time?

I think if your messaging on the wmr has changed to processing I believe is a very good sign
As far as processing time I have seen anywhere from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Lets all hope since its early in the year they will resolve these and move on to the real crooks.February 20, 2018 at 7:56 pm #4225818
Faxed all my paperwork in today a 57 page fax! Verifying the same dependents I’ve carried for the last 5yrs which are my children by the way! My tax advocate said that everything looked good and she faxed it over to the IRS. My question is how long does this audit process take?February 18, 2018 at 5:23 am #4223280
Yea I have the take action and 151 too. Standard message since we had to update to something on wmr.February 17, 2018 at 10:25 pm #4223095
I received the non-EIC portion of my refund (surprise!). Now my tax topic is 151 – Appeals Rights. Yeah, there’s nothing to appeal, it’s still under review. Is this a generic message they throw up, because it sure doesn’t apply to me yet. I’m waiting on them to review the documents I sent in and release the rest. I’ll be checking my transcripts daily to see if anything changes.February 16, 2018 at 12:11 pm #4220593
So update, transcripts updated today. 420 is still there. I have a DDD for the non actc credit for the 22nd with an 846. They are holding the rest from the actc and that has a processing date of 03/05, so March 5th. I haven’t received a notice or a 971 TC. They should at least tell me if I’m being audited or send out a letter. I filed on the 24 and accepted on the 26 of Jan. It’s like, should I call and ask them what’s going on, or just wait… This is killing me.February 16, 2018 at 11:59 am #4220512
@Sheila_33 So I faxed everything in to the IRS & my tax advocate on Tuesday. Then on Thursday I was reading online another case of someone involving a CP75 letter and how it took them over 500 days to resolve it. I started panicking and went through all 12 months of my bank statements and blacked out everything except what could prove that I’m HOH and provide for my dependent. I showed them each month where my mortgage came out of my bank, my utilities were paid, groceries bought. I think I went above and beyond to prove my case here, but I didn’t want them to come back and say that I didn’t prove I actually paid for those items like they did in the story I read online. In that case, the person used money orders to pay her rent. The IRS wouldn’t accept them because they say anyone could have purchase those money orders. I wasn’t letting that happen to me! All-in-all, I faxed over about 55+ pages of documentation.
My tax advocate called me this morning. He is very nice and eager to help me get this resolved. I asked if they are holding my entire refund or just the portions in question as the letter stated. He believes they will hold my entire refund until the audit is complete. The good news is he is forwarding everything I sent him to the IRS and giving them 1 week to review and release the refund – OR – decide if they need any further documentation from me. I really hope that they now have everything that they need now and approve it.
My status changed on the ‘Where’s My Refund’ page from the tax topic 152 to ‘Your refund is being processed’ message that everyone else has too. No mention of audit or any troubles, so that’s interesting!February 15, 2018 at 1:24 pm #4218592
Go Blue: What did you see last time you looked at your transcripts? If you’re not seeing that 971 maybe they internally fixed things. I know there is going to be no change on mine tomorrow because I just got everything faxed in yesterday.February 15, 2018 at 1:16 pm #4218559
Think I’ll be in the same boat as well, but i havent recieved a letter or a 971February 13, 2018 at 6:53 pm #4216032
I hope you have good luck with the advocate. Keep me informed of your progress. Looks like there are going to be a lot of us in this boat. So far I have counted 10. I have had that audit code for 2 weeks and was ready for that letter. I was happy that it was just the cp75February 13, 2018 at 2:47 pm #4215695
I have not tried ordering my transcripts. I certainly hope I’ll get *something* back very soon, it sure would help out!
On the bright side, I heard back quickly from the tax advocate’s office, within a couple hours! I got my case number and my actual advocate will contact me in 3 days. I’m pretty hopeful that this can be a quick(ish) fix. I mean really, all anyone there has to do is spend 15 minutes reviewing my documents and they will see I qualify for everything I filed for. But getting to that point is the challenge!February 13, 2018 at 2:08 pm #4215684
Are you able to see your transcripts at all? I think they have frozen the eic but I have heard of other people getting the difference minus the eic.February 13, 2018 at 1:45 pm #4215631
I received my CP75 letter dated 2/12 on 2/10. I gathered all documents requested and faxed this morning. No idea how long this is supposed to take. I have to prove HOH status eligibility also, plus dependent. They want grocery receipts for the year (who keeps those?!?) purchases of clothing for the dependent, doctor visit receipts, school records, utility payments, mortgage receipts, everything. Well I blasted them with a 43 page fax that proves everything, so they better be on it.
I also filled out the form for a tax advocate because the uncertainty of when they’ll get to me qualifies me for a hardship case in my opinion. What I’m confused about is the wording where it says they are holding the part that has the earned income credit. They don’t mention if they’ll release my normal tax refund without claiming the other stuff. I have no idea what is happening or how long this is.
