We are writing to let you know we have made changes to your Social Security earnings
record. The following will give you more information about the changes.
Why We Changed Your Earnings Record
You reported $400.00 in self-employment income for 1990. The Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) examined this and decided this was not self-employment income. They say these
earnings were wages you earned as an employee of Smith Trucking.
If you have any questions about the IRS decision, you should contact Smith Trucking
for more information.
Because of what the IRS told us, we have changed your earnings record. We have removed
$400.00 in self-employment income for 1990 from your earnings record. And we have
added $450.00 to your earnings records as wages for 1990. The amount of Social Security
wages we added to your record is more than the amount of self-employment income you
reported because wages are not reduced by business deductions.
If You Disagree With the Amount Added or Removed
If you disagree with the amount of self-employment income we removed from your earnings
record or the amount we added as wages, you have the right to appeal. We will review
your case and consider any new facts that you have. Then a person who did not make
the first decision will decide your case.
You have 60 days to ask for an appeal.
The 60 days start the day after you get this letter.

You must have a good reason for waiting more than 60 days to ask for an appeal.
You have to ask for an appeal in writing. We will ask you to sign a Form SSA-561-U2,
called “Request for Reconsideration.” Contact one of our offices if you want help.
