What is an LP64 notice?

Jo Willetts, EA

Director, Tax Resources

Published on: June 10, 2020

IRS notices are letters sent to inform taxpayers of important tax information. Each one is different, but we can explain what the LP64 is about.

Understanding your LP64 notice

The IRS is requesting your help in locating a taxpayer you may know. 

Type of Notice

IRS Request for Information

Why you received the LP64 notice

You received an LP64 notice because the IRS believes you can help them locate a taxpayer.

Likely next steps

Carefully read the notice. There will be an enclosed form 15106 included with your notice that the IRS would like you to complete. Mail the completed form and the stub from your notice to the IRS within 10 days.

If you would like to be removed from the IRS third-party list, you will need to either call or send a letter to the IRS.

LP64 Notice deadline

The IRS requests that you respond within 10 days of the date of the notice.

If you miss the deadline

There is no penalty if you miss the deadline.
