How to Dispute Invalid Code A176s

  • Use Accounts Payable Credit/Debit Memo Detail Report

  • Invoice Copy/copies

  • Signed BOL for collect shipments

  • Signed POD for pre-paid shipments

  • Documentation Supporting correct case pack

  • If cost is the primary driver of the deduction or you want to dispute a cost portion of the deduction, email communication from your Target merchant may be necessary to win that part of the dispute.

  • Additional for cost, any other documented proof, such as screenshots from the Item Maintenance (IMN) app within POL, that shows why the invoice cost is correct and the cost Target reports for receipt is incorrect
