Because I used my parents address for my taxes
in 2005 and 2006 (I thought
it was just a contact address, and not an admission of tax liability), my parents'local
tax authorities (Greensburg, PA) have been trying to get me to pay local
taxes in Greensburg, whereas I had already paid local taxes elsewhere (my real residence
in those years). The sum of money is not so painful to pay -- less than $400.
My question: if I fight it by proving I was not a resident of Greensburg, and the case
goes into audit, can worse things happen? Specifically, can the City of Greensburg start to audit my other tax years
, without further reason? If the latter is the case, then it may be better for me to just pay the <$400.
