Why did I get this notice?

The taxpayer received this notice because the Department's records indicate the taxpayer did not file a return by its due date. The return name and Notice ID are listed on the Delinquent Notice. A few common scenarios include:

  • The Department changed the taxpayer's filing frequency, but the taxpayer filed using an old filing frequency
  • The taxpayer employed seasonal workers or didn’t have any sales to report, and the taxpayer didn’t file a zero tax due return
  • The taxpayer forgot or neglected to file a return

Where can I get more information?

Review the information on the taxpayer's notice, or call 1-877-252-3252 (toll-free) if you have additional questions.

What if I used my old filing frequency?

The taxpayer may need to amend the return that was filed and file returns for the periods that were not filed.

Contact the Department to determine the correct payment. Depending on the due date of the taxpayer's old filing frequency, late filing or payment penalties may have accrued.

What if I ignore this notice?

If the taxpayer does not file a return immediately, the Department will assess the taxpayer based on the information available to the Department's staff.

What if I’ve already filed my return?

If the taxpayer has already filed a return, they can call 1-877-252-3052 (toll-free). If the taxpayer filed electronically, be ready to provide the confirmation number.

What if I’m no longer in business?

If the taxpayer is no longer in business, submit the Out-of-Business Notification form (NC-BN).

What if I can’t pay?

Even if the taxpayer can’t pay, the taxpayer should still file a return. There are separate penalties for failure to file and failure to pay. If the taxpayer files a return, and does not make a payment, the taxpayer avoids the additional failure to file penalties.
