QR Codes Added to IRS Balance-Due Notices

The IRS has added barcode technology to certain balance-due notices. CP14 and CP14 IA balance-due notices that inform taxpayers that they owe money on unpaid taxes, and of their payment options, are now equipped with QR barcodes to help those taxpayers securely and easily navigate IRS.gov. CP14 notices are the first legal notice alerting taxpayers that they have a balance due.

Taxpayers can use their smartphones to scan a QR code in the CP14 or CP14 IA to go directly to IRS.gov and securely access their account, set up a payment plan, or contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service.

Scanning the QR code on the CP14 or CP14 IA gives the taxpayer direct access to the information they need on IRS.gov to resolve their account balance online without the need to call or interact with the IRS directly.
