CP2000 Initiative

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) submits federal tax information to the North Carolina Department of Revenue (NCDOR). The NCDOR utilizes federal tax information in many tax compliance initiatives.

The IRS matches individual income tax return information with information returns submitted by banks, employers, and other payers. The IRS issues a CP2000 notice to taxpayers that fail to report specific income items on the federal individual income tax return. The CP2000 notice generally increases federal taxable income. The North Carolina individual income tax return starting point is federal taxable income. A taxpayer who receives a CP2000 notice must file an amended State return reflecting the adjustments on the CP2000 notice within six months of receiving the CP2000 notice. Failure to file an amended North Carolina individual income tax return reflecting the adjustments indicated on the CP2000 notice will result in a Notice of Individual Income Tax Assessment from the North Carolina Department of Revenue.
