CP21A is a form that you get from the IRS after you file, or provide some information to the IRS, and you still owe as a result of that information. It also could be that you didn’t owe before you provided that information, but you do owe now.

Bottom line, the CP21A is all about the fact that you still have a balance due. It satisfies the notice and demand requirement of the IRS to go ahead and pay this. Other than that, there’s not too much consequence of it.


It’s important to note that they cannot levy or seize your wages or your bank accounts, or any other property, based on a CP21A. That would require a Letter 1058. A CP21A is essentially notice and demand that you owe taxes.
