Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your problems ... I would look at sitting down with someone who is an enrolled agent (EA) and a tax attorney as well .... These folks (EAs) are enrolled in a special program where they have had special training and are enrolled to "practice before the IRS," BUT THEY REPRESENT YOU, unlike your neighbor, who represents the IRS
You may want to consider, given the fact that you were essentially tricked, filing this form and talking to the APPEALS division of IRS (who are not allowed to discuss your case with the collection side of the agency)
You may appeal many IRS collection actions to the IRS Office of Appeals (Appeals). Appeals is separate from and independent of theIRS Collection office that initiated the collection action. Appeals ensures and protects its independence by adhering to a strict policyof prohibiting certain ex parte communications with the IRS Collection office or other IRS offices, such as discussions regarding thestrengths or weaknesses of your case
Here's the link to this document:
Here's the form you use to start the process:
I can think of 1 other thing that may help; (1) an offer in compromise Form 656
Here's the booklet on an offer in compromise: Form 656-B
What might make the most send is going to someone that i an EA after having done some homework on these methods and discuss them .. I can not urgee strongly enough however, that you want an EA who is either a CPA as well or a tax attorney as well ... In my experience folks who only have the EA designation, without the academic background necessary for the CPA or law degree are not as likely to understand ALL of your options in a holistic way
Based on the specific parts of the information that you've provided, it seems to me that there are legal issues (both regarding the corporation AND the deception of the agent) that would lend itself to speaking with an attorney
I don't think so at this time. I will get this info and contact a CPA or tax attorney. Thank you very much!!!
you're very welcome
After you rate this will all stay here for you, and the links to the information will stay active as well
If this HAS helped, I would appreciate a feedback rating of 3 (OK) or better … That's the only way they will pay us here.
HOWEVER, if you need more on this, PLEASE COME BACK here, so you won't be charged for another question.
Good lick with everything .. and let me know if I can help further
If you’d like to work with me again, say “For Lane only …” at the beginning of your question.
'For Lane only...'
We had another question for you.
Can a corporate officer, with no stock holdings in an S-type corp, be assessed penalties and interest on the corp tax debt?
We have another question.
Is there an agency or office we can discuss this situation with, without going to court or an attorney?
I would sit down with a person called an enrolled agent.
Understand that these people DON'T work for IRS, they've just taken special tests and have access that others don't. THEY WORK FOR YOU.
Here's a list of them in SD
THey specialize in handling problems.
I would start by calling a few of these and asking if you can have a first time free consultation... many do
For our final question,
If a corporate officer is assessed an S-type corps. 941 taxes, and they have no stock etc. other than a salary, can the IRS assess penalties, interest, and late payment fees as well as the tax debt onto that employee?
