Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.I cannot advise what triggered the request but, when you ended the corporation, did you file the final returns and mark as such on the form (that it was a final year)?Your final 940 form would have a box to marl a well showing that the form was the final. If you still have the copies you could respond with a brief letter advising of the closing date and the date the final forms were filed.
You could also call the number on the notice and speak with an agent. If you have a CPA or tax professional you may wish to let them handle this for you.
It is odd that you would receive a notice this late after closing.
I don't have income tax records prior to 2005 at this point (using a 7 year requirement). I'll try an agent at the IRS. I assume
they can pull up most any record from a computer terminal on their desk to track
what has happened?
Yes they can
You can also go into your local office of the IRS
Well, that should do it. Thanks much.
You are most welcome
