    Notices CP12A-R tell you the IRS has information in their file which leads them to believe that there is a calculation error on your return. However, the error could be faulty information rather than a miscalculation. Compare your tax return with the item the IRS adjusted and see if a math error is readily apparent.

    Notice CP12A is usually used for changes to your Earned Income Credit. Notice CP12E is for changes to Employee Business Expenses. Notice CP12M is for changes to the Making Work Pay credit or Government Retiree Credit. Notice CP12R is for changes to the Recovery Rebate Credit. (See examples below)

    The problem could be 1) a document mismatch, 2) a mischaracterization, 3) a lack of offsetting information or 4) simply a calculation error on the form.

    First, determine if there is a calculation error on the form. If not, determine if you have any evidence the IRS should see that offsets their proposal.
