Robin D : Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,You should first go get the letter from the post office. Then contact your CPA. If your CPA had the information to complete the S corp filing and did not then they should assume the responsibility.If you feel that your CPA has not followed through with their responsibilities you should contact the Kentucky Society of CPAs.

Robin D : The society has strict regulations for their members
Robin D : You can contact them by Phone:(NNN) NNN-NNNN/span>
Robin D : I agree with you when you state you should not be responsible especially if the CPA had all they needed to complete the work.
Robin D : Can you actually view my posts?
Robin D : I hate to switch to regular Q &A if you can really see my posts in CHAT
Robin D : because
Robin D : we will not be able to switch back to CHAT and talk real time.
Robin D : If you have a small S corp (10 or less shareholders) your CPA can request an abatement for the penalty. Perhaps they did this and the letter is in response to the request.
Robin D : Let me know if you wish to add more.
