It's letter number is : LTR 707C
At the top of the letter it states "Your account shows an overpayment of (X amount of money.) You will receive a refund in four to eight weeks unless you owe other taxes or legal debts we are required to collect..."
The letter says it is for the 2010 tax period. I'm not exactly what this is for, but I did call the IRS and (after 45 minutes of waiting) found out that I DO have a credit on my account and no balances. Has anyone else received this letter? Will I really be given a refund for the X amount of dollars they indicated? I've never heard of this before.
