My taxpayer received IRS letter 5591 or 5596. What are these letters about?


Some of your clients may receive IRS letter 5591 or 5596. Both letters encourage the taxpayer to file a return with Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit (PTC), as soon as possible.

  • Letter 5596 is directed to taxpayers who received the Advance Premium Tax Credit and filed an extension, but have not yet filed a return containing Form 8962 to reconcile advance payments of the Premium Tax Credit.
