They have no grounds to bother, if the person has never filed and they have no evidence of tax evasion. That’s why they don’t bother.

Virtue signalling.

Comply with the law of the land you live in (including the treaties) and you’ll be fine.

Just file Form 8965 with Exemption Type "C" for the Full Year. That will surely get them off your back.

My husband said it was because I filed form 8965 that I'm in this fix. It made them think I wasn't exempt . . . so I'm trying to get in contact with TAS now, and I plan to file form 1040X - I believe this is the correct form to correct a mistake.

Did you file Form 8965 with the "C" exemption code for the full year? I don't see why filing form 8965 correctly would trigger this at all.

If they sent you a letter, you should be able to just reply directly with the IRS notice attached.
Perhaps give them a call here: +1 267-941-1000 for international callers or overseas taxpayers.

Option 1, 4, 2 to talk about your specific account and they can let you know the proper next steps

Good luck!
