    I received this reference # today as well. The mail service here is horrible and I am worried I won’t receive the letter. Are the documents they need the same for everyone or is it different depending on situations? I claim my girlfriend’s children (and have for the last 3 years with no issues) she hasn’t been working since the end of 2016. Do I just need to prove that we all still live at the same address?



    I got the 1242 message as well today. I filed the same information I filed last year and had no problem at that point. I haven’t received any letters and they appear to not be open to call them. What documents are they asking you for?



    What did letter ask for? I got same message



    I got same thing what did letter ask for?



    Tammy what did they ask for



    ok, so i filed my taxes and had this same message. i got a letter asking to verify my nieces and nephew that i claim…the problem is now, the mother doesn’t want to give me any of the documents the IRS needs…even though she and the 3 kids all live with me and i support them.
    What do i do???



    Same message

    Yesterday when I checked mine it stated that it was accepted and being processed. Checked this morning when I got up and I received the same thing above. Did a general Google Search on the reference number and there are too many conflicting statements on what it actually means. Some people say it is for an offset and some say it is for the EIC/ACTC, but no one can give an actual definitive answer on what the damn thing means. The website does not state that I am to receive a letter from the IRS, just that if I have questions, to call them and mention the reference number to the IRS Representative.



    I have the exact same thing. With the exact numbers. They sent me a letter last week, I had to fax over proof my children belong to me. Doctor notes, a letter from they’re school birth certificates. Had to have receipts, and fill out they’re questionnaire about how I have my self employed business.
    It will be ok though once you get the letter send in everything they want. The bad part is , it will put a delay on our refunds.



    I Haven’t had that situation, but it looks like they need more info. They should send you a letter.
