How to get refund from I.R.S. for stock proceeds which were sent to I.R.S. due to stock account SS# error

Stock sale proceeds were sent to I.R.S. due to error in my SS# on account? I found out about it after the fact since I was not notified of change in company stock through a merger. So can these funds be refunded by I.R.S.

Normally the proceeds from a sale don't go to the IRS, although some might be withheld for taxes.

If money is sent to the IRS by mistake it can be refunded.  Your problem is that you have to convince the IRS that there was a mistake.  And if the earnings were reported against the wrong SS# and you didn't pay taxes on the earnings, you will owe back taxes.

You can call the IRS and they will probably tell you that you have to send your request in writing, along with evidence for the error to be corrected.
