Definition of 'Form 843'

Form 843 is an IRS form used to amend a previously filed tax return. It can be used to correct errors, claim a refund, or report a change in circumstances. The form must be filed within three years of the original due date of the return, or two years from the date the tax was paid, whichever is later.

The form is divided into three parts:

* Part I: Identification Information
* Part II: Explanation of Changes
* Part III: Supporting Documents

In Part I, you will need to provide your name, address, and Social Security number. You will also need to indicate the type of tax return you are amending and the year it was filed.

In Part II, you will need to explain the changes you are making to your return. You will need to provide details about the error you made, the amount of the change, and why you are making the change.

In Part III, you will need to attach any supporting documents that verify the changes you are making. This could include copies of receipts, canceled checks, or other documentation.

Once you have completed the form, you will need to sign and date it. You can then mail it to the IRS address listed on the form.

If you are amending a tax return to claim a refund, you will also need to file Form 843 with an accompanying check or money order for the amount of the refund. The check or money order should be made payable to the United States Treasury.

If you have any questions about Form 843, you can contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
