CEO of a small company, a C Corporation, in California, and
I am President/CEO of a small company, a C Corporation, in California, and have been in business employing 15 to 45 people for over 30 years. Due to some illegal activities of a Fortune 500 Company, we owe back taxes that are in the neighborhood inclusive of penalties, of perhaps $16o,000.00. We hired a supposed IRS tax expert negotiating Law Firm and over the past 2 years have paid them about $20,000. The firm apparently had negotiated a payment program some months ago but they never related this information to us. An attorney at this firm contacted us today, after return from maternity leave. She said the IRS suspended the payment plan because our company did not comply with the payment schedule. This firm never informed us that the IRS had agreed to a settlement program as they have Power ofJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Attorney for our Corporation. We are a California Corporation based in Northern California and they are a Law fir based in Colorado. We believe that they are not being truthful and did not follow through as they said they would and a payment plan with theirs was cancelled as the never informed us there was one. My question is can we sue this firm in Small Claims Court for not performing the services they represented. We also need to get documents supporing that they really had conversations with the IRS. At this point we feel they are acting fraudently as they asked today for another $5500.00 to continue to represent us to try to again negotiate for a payment plan they claim they already received, but it was cancelled as we did not perform. of course we con not conform to a plan that we never knew about! We need to show the IRS that we have been trying to come up with a payment plan with an unethical firm, basically IRS Ambulance Chasers" We feel, at this point we would be better off filing a Small Claims Action and Formal complaints with the BAR Association, to try and recover some funs and move forward with direct communication. I would appreciate your feed back and confirmation if we can sue a Colorado Based law Firm in the Northern California court system? Thank you very much!JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: They claim they have filed documents, but we have never seen anything in the last 2 years. We gave them Power of Attorney for dealing with the IRS only. Today , we asked them for copies of all documentation as we have seen nothing and they just want more money?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that is basically it. We have a lot of upside potential as we have been Preferred Suppliers to Intel for over 20 years and have very diversified services, but if we can not set up a payment plan our business and many jobs are in jeopardy. Thank you!

This is a corporate law question. Scenario: C corporation, 2
This is a corporate law question. Scenario: C corporation, 2 shareholders. One is the majority shareholder owning 51 percent of stock. Business has been ongoing for almost 30 years. Shareholders entered into corporation without any sort of Buy/Sell agreement for death or disability. One shareholder is 70 years old (49%) and the other is 66 years old (51%). The 70 year old has had serious health problems for many years and has gradually ceased working over the past 5 years. However still draws his normal salary, bonus and perks, the same as the 66 year old who works the business and keeps it going. The 66 year old offered many years ago to buy the other partner out. He declined. But, at this point, one is working and the other receiving the same benefits. Is the only option to make some sort of offer to the other? Due to age, the 66 year old no longer wishes to buy out the other one.
