Section A – Reason For Filing This Form (Required for all filers)
Check only ONE of the following two boxes. You MUST provide the requested description or explanation in the lined area below.
I am a victim of identity theft AND it is affecting my
federal tax records.
You should check this box if, for example, your attempt
to file electronically was rejected because someone had
already filed using your Social Security Number (SSN)

you received a notice or correspondence from the IRS
indicating someone was otherwise using your number.
Provide a short explanation of the problem and how
you were made aware of it.
I have experienced an event involving my personal information
that may at some future time affect my federal tax records.
You should check this box if you are the victim of non-federal
tax related identity theft, such as the misuse of your personal
identity information to obtain credit. You should also check this
box if no identity theft violation has occurred, but you have
experienced an event that could result in identity theft, such as
a lost/stolen purse or wallet, home robbery, etc.
