Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

The information you provided does not indicate if you have given a Power of Attorney (Form 2848) to your tax preparer. If your tax preparer is a CPA or an IRS Enrolled Agent, I would suggest signing a Power of Attorney so he/she can call the IRS and CA Franchise Tax Board to obtain information regarding your issues. The IRS has a special "hotline" number for tax preparers. It should only take one call to the IRS and CA Franchise Tax Board to obtain the information you are seeking.

I am an IRS Enrolled Agent and would be happy to assist you.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
