I got a letter from IRS last month saying I hadn’t filed my 2019 tax return. It was easy to prove they were wrong since I owed money and mailed a check. Couldn’t get through by phone, so I filled out the form they sent and included a copy of return and cancelled check, so ball is back in their court.
Have patience. On a good year it takes them 9 months to a year to get these things straight. This year is going to be a disaster. You don't have anything to worry about though, as you are correct. You might keep getting letters, even threatening to put a levy on your property, but you can ignore them.

I got a CP2000 notice December 28 from the IRS that they'd identified 2018 income I hadn't reported on my 2018 return. So I responded January 13 to clear that up, and to the best of my knowledge that reply is still sitting in their mail room unopened. I think this because I got another notice 2 weeks ago, a CP2319A notice, restating their original estimates from the CP2000. So I called the IRS and asked if they had received my original response I mailed in January. They said that no, they haven't, and that it was probably still waiting to be processed. This time I faxed my reply to the CP2319A just to be more sure it would actually be received, although the rep I spoke with on the phone told me that faxing a response would not make it get processed any faster than snail mailing it.

They really need to simplify the tax system. No loopholes. No different between income and capital gains. Set a nice progression margin and then tie the boundaries of the tax brackets to inflation.

What is the sum of all my earnings? Oh, I see I land in the 3rd tax bracket. That means I owed X over the year. Was that amount withheld already? Do I owe or get a refund? BAM. Done.

Do you know how many Leroy's you put out of business? Another Great Recession if you do that.

I'd be happy with that. Taxes are just a sideline now for me. All my time is auditing government entities, and at the pace of people getting out of that, and the increases in governmental spending, business is good.
