Customer: Hello...if I file chapter 13 for tax
year 2011-2012 will that wipe away my tax liability
for those two years? Both Federal
and now CA State
is claiming I owe money for those years!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I was audited in 2014 for Tax year by the Feds and I owe according to them approximately 30K. They through out 100% of my deductions
and since then my income
has been reduced significantly. In fact I have been unemployed on and off since 2012 but have had some income as an independent contractor
. Now the CA state Franchise Tax
is trying to collect approximately 13K for those years. I currently plan on sending a 7275 protest letter (form
) which is due by next week. I hired an attorney who is negotiating with the IRS
on a offer of compromise but have receive little direction on the notice from the State
