The CP14 and CP14 IA will now come with QR codes printed on the forms. These codes allow taxpayers to directly access pertinent information on the IRS website without having to contact the IRS directly.

Once taxpayers scan in the QR code with their smartphone, they will be redirected to where they will be able to safely access their account and set up a payment plan.

Darren Guillot, the IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Deputy Commissioner for Collection and Operations Support stated that the QR codes will allow taxpayers "immediate access to the most important information for them to pay their balances, set up payment agreements or reach out for help,"

On average, the IRS sends over 8 million CP14 notices annually to taxpayers. The addition of a QR code on the form will simplify the resolution process for both taxpayers and the IRS. The IRS is assessing the possibility of adding other QR codes to other balance due notices in the future.
