    I got the same thing. Filed Feb 14th we waited and got certified mail saying they needed ALLLL this stuff for supporting documentation required. So we went back to the lady that helped us with taxes which was VITA and we wrote up a letter and sent all the documents. Then a while later I went to wheres my refund and it said wait for a letter in the mail. We waited and finally got 2 letters saying the EXACT same thing that they received our response on March 26th and they should review our response by August 3rd!! Went back on to wheres my refund and it says TAKE ACTION! Tax topic 151 your Appeal Rights says also related to you tax situation. I click on it and it says pretty much you can take them in court. That’s all it said. It gave me a number to call 800-829-0582 ext. 362, and to mention reference number 1242. I called and a lady answered and had no idea and was transferring me over to someone else or a different department. Guess what? I got hung up on. So we were like screw it lets wait until that time August 3rd. Well Today is August 1st I called and it was a stupid machine that kept cutting me off, breaking up and also hanging up on me for 2 hours straight!!! Still haven’t been able to talk to anyone with IRS. So I called the lady that helped up file everything. She told me she has never even HEARD of that before and to call IRS at 7:00 am because that is when they are taking the least calls and if I don’t hear back from them to go in to her and we can file paperwork to get a Tax payer advocate. So we will see what happens. But it seems like to me there just keeping all of our money and don’t have the money to pay us back and making excuses up, telling people the same thing they tell EVERYONE else, buying there sweet time. It just doesn’t make sense. You never get a straight answer and it is very, VERY misleading to us tax payers. Seems like WE have to abide by the law but hmm THEY DONT. There the government they can do what they want, what they want with our money etc!!!! Its soooo frustrating!!! By Friday which will be August 3rd that they say there response date is…I will be making a lot of calls until I get MY money. WE have worked for that, they haven’t there using us all!!!! SCREW THE IRS!!! EVERYONE needs to be calling and throwing a fit!!! But be smart about it smarter than them! When they cant control you they will eventually give up. RIGHT?? Anyone else feel this way and/or gotten letters like this and “advised” to take IRS to court?? ITS NUTS!!!!

    need to contact the Tax payer advocate hotline (google it) and get your ta’s supervisor to light a fire under them.

    This is your money, you worked for it. Just don’t get frustrated and give up. That’s what they want so you’ll never see your money and only see a letter of deficiency in the mail

    Its an audit for verifying dependents. I had the same issue and had to send in a letter from their school, attendance records, marriage license since they are my wife’s kids and I have an strenuous case so I contacted a tax payer advocate and I’m suppose to get my funds released the 22 hopefully

    -faxed into to ta (6/5)
    -got response from ta (6/12)
    -estimated deposit (6/22)

    Word of advice- the IRS communicates with incompetence and does NOT care about your situation.
    – the ta will most likely not care either and they just don’t communicate at all. To make them move you will more than likely

    Yes I got the same 151 code. I talked to the irs and they said it’s an audit for the child tax credit. I have to mail or fax documents proving I could claim the kids. I faxed them my kids school records showing our address and it states I’m the father. I also sent letters from their pediatrician with our address along with all my utility bills in my name with my address. Oh and also a copy of my drivers license to show my address. I had to fax like 32 pages of documents to them. Still no word as of today.

    Its not because you owe if you did they would have sent a letter in the mail before they accepted your refund ..There may be something in your tax return for which the IRS needs additional documentation or they may have a different calculation. There may be a difference in the information you provided and the forms provided directly to their agency (such as your W2). Without knowing more about your tax return, it is hard to guess what the issue may be.In the next 30 days, you need to gather all your tax documents. If you have not printed a copy of all your forms, do so, including your tax return.

    I woke up to the same message this morning. I received my letter from IRS in today’s mail.

    They want verification of qualified children for EIC.

    My letter said they would be holding the EIC portion of the refund until after they have reviewed my documents. So, hopefully that means they will release part of it.

    Received the Tax Topic 151 with reference code 1242 this morning after yesterday it stated that it was received and processing. Now this morning it stated that I had the topic like stated in previous sentence, but stated nothing about receiving a letter from IRS requiring additional documentation or anything. Plus doing a general Google Search yielded very little or conflicting results on what it actually means.

    Some people state that it is they want additional information regarding dependents and some people state that it was an offset due to debts needing to be paid, etc, so there is really no definitive answer to the question or topic with reference number. Kinda stumped. Does not help that the dumbasses at the IRS decided the end of last year to the beginning of this year to “Lay off” people which in turn screwed the everyday American tax payer and decided to delay a crap ton of peoples refunds. It also does not help when you click on the link for the topic 151, it does not really explain a whole lot regarding the situation
