We had not filed our 2011 Missouri taxes
and we recieved a "Notice of Deficiency" Form
2944 yesterday. I have the 2011 taxes completed but did not send them in because I was told it was too late. I do not see our mail and so I am sure we recieved several other notices before this one. We are also have not filed the Fed taxes for 2011 for the same reason. We did get the 2012 Fed and state
Taxes filed before the April 18 deadline
this year. I also recieved a "Request for Return
" form 5590, for 2012. Since I had already filed 2012 I checked the box that stated that we had already filed and included a copy of the 2012 return. Before I start working on catching up with the 2013 returns, I want to find out the best approach for the 2011 state returns. Do I file a protest, as they outline in their letter and include a copy of the 2011, although they were never really filed or is there another approach. My only excuse is bad book keeping and lack of time to get them done. I know that is not very good but the truth. What do you suggest?
JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Accountant about your situation and then connect you two.
