Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.You stated " As far as I can tell the attorney never filed it...", to qualify for relief from the late filing of Form 2553, the corporation must meet all these criteria:
You need to find out if the 2553 was filed or not for sure.
it was not filed
Then the IRS will not grant a relief and your S corp filings will need to be amended
Do you have a CPA?
yes I do. can I file a private letter ruling?
Yes you could do that. As your situation would not fit into the relief procedures listed.
Can my acct. do that or do I need an attorney
Your CPA would be able to handle that
Have you been using the same for past years (CPA that is)
yes I have
Then they will have all they woudl need to do thsi for you
would this ** Sorry
You are most welcome. Your positive rating is always thanks enough.
