I owed an S corporation in MIhcigan that shut dpwn and no

Customer Question

i owed an S corporation in MIhcigan that shut dpwn and no longer exists in the state of Michigan. I reeived a bill for taxes due from 2009 - long after the corporation was closed. Taxes were paid at the time of the return but the state said that after review of the return there is a balance due. I had a tax firm complete the tax returns. The company is no longer in operation. As the sole officer, are we responsible for the state of Michigan tax debt?

Hi

I'm Anne. I've been preparing taxes for 28 years and I'll be happy to help you.

Was this for sales tax by chance?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no it was the single business tax for michigan on an s corp - it looks like the tax amount was paid but they charged penalties and interest after the fact.

When did you pay the taxes? In what year?
