How to prepare Form 14039
About Form 14039
Fill in the amount of the claim. If it is unclear, provide an estimated amount and a note indicating whether you have the same filing status as the person who filed the return. Do not include any information about the filing status of the taxpayer whose return you file the claim on. If your claim should result in an identification of someone, you must file Form 14039 as soon as possible after discovering the identity, or becoming aware of the identity, of the taxpayer whose return you file the claim on. If you do not know who a particular taxpayer is, you should make the best guess based on the facts contained in the return for which you are filing your claim and in the description of the transaction that you believe may have helped to provide identification of someone. If you are unable to obtain a taxpayer's information from another source, you are required to file a claim for that taxpayer, as described next. If You Can't Obtain Someone's Identity from the Return If the return or its description indicates that you need other information, you must file a claim on Form 14039 for that person. You do not need to submit the entire return or a separate Form 14039 for each of the filer(s) of the return. However, you must follow all the instructions in Form 14039 for filing your claim, as given above. You must file Form 14039 as soon as possible; however, because the IRS often does not receive the original return until months later, you may need to file a claim on other IRS tax returns as well (or on other forms in the future). The date(s) you file Form 14039 must be within three years from the date you filed your original claim on Form 1040. The IRS will not accept refunds for tax years filed to the time the claim is filed on Form 14039. If You Don't Know Who a Taxpayer Is When you find that a person (or group of people, if you are unable to identify a single person) appears on the return of someone else, or on any additional return filed by the tax filer or their spouse, you must file a claim for that person using Form 14039. If you aren't sure whether the taxpayer or the person they reported on their tax return is the correct person, you should call the FBI. The FBI will be able to advise which agency to contact to obtain more information.
