What is IRS letter 6475?
This is where the new IRS letter — officially known as Letter 6475 — comes in. The letter contains information about your third stimulus check and any plus up payments you have so you can put accurate numbers on your tax return. For this reason, the IRS press release recommends not throwing out Letter 6475.
“People who receive these letters should keep them,” it adds. “These letters can help taxpayers or their tax professional prepare their federal tax returns for 2021.”
The IRS also began sending letters about the child tax credit. Letter 6419 contains information about how many eligible children your family has and, if applicable, the amount you have received in advances. Also stick to this note – you’ll need it for your taxes.
