Does anyone know the purpose of IRS letter 2797? It
basically asks for you assistance in updating their records
and you check yes or no to the question of whether the
address where you received the letter is in fact your
address. Is this associated with Form 2797, the CID
referral? Thanks for the assistance.

Verrry interesting.

If possible, could you quote significant parts of the letter
while at the same time "whiting out" any identifying data?
Special attention to information in upper right hand corner
of the letter.

I know nothing about the letter, but I'm sure it has
nothing to do with an internal IRS form of the same number.
Referring a t/p to CID for fraud without knowing where
he/she lives is rather inconsistent.

Okay, so I'm talking to myself. Happens at the office, too.

Yesterday I posted a message about Memphis Service center
sending their annual letter asking for form 8453's what they
"alledgely didn't get". Well, I KNOW I sent them.

Today I looked at that letter again, since an IRS Quick
alert was in my email this morning talking about the
difference between efile signatures and form 8453's.

Guess what? in the bottom right of that letter, just where
the signature block is, was "Letter 2797". This letter of
course had nothing to do with correct address as the
original poster mentioned.

So, maybe Letter 2797 is the generic number for any letter
written that is not a form letter. You reckon?
