I received a lock in letter from the IRS saying that my

Good morning! I received a lock in letter from the IRS saying that my employer had to withhold taxes at a single rate although I am am married with 2 dependents. This letter was issued back in 2011 and since then, I have paid all taxes owed and my employers since then were never issued a letter saying I needed to withhold that higher amount. I am now returning to my employer from back in 2011. Would they have have to follow a letter that was sent to them about this matter after I left or would it be enough to tell them that this has been resolved and I have not needed to have extra money withheld for the past four years?JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: I have $400 left to pay on taxes for 2015 but otherwise am paid up on taxes.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.

There! So, a bit of a backstory: I run a Delaware LLC,

Hi there!So, a bit of a backstory:I run a Delaware LLC, with a grand total of two members. Both members (myself included) are Swedish citizens.We are a web hosting company, serving customers from both the U.S. and many other countries.Our estimated annual income at the moment is $11 600 per year, with expenses upwards of $8000/year.Customers pay us through two methods:a) PayPalb) Stripe (Credit Cards) which are transferred to a Swedish bank account.The question:From all my reading (U.S. Tax laws are very confusing to me as a foreigner), I have gathered that we should not be liable to pay the I.R.S. any sort of income tax, as the LLC itself is not a taxable entity, and its members are not American citizens whereas they can't report income tax.I have however heard opposing stories as well, and now wish to confirm this.Is the Delaware Franchise Tax of $300/year the sole fee we are eligible to pay, or is there another level of tax we need to pay? If so, to where, when and are our expenses deductible? What level (percentage) of tax would this be?Finally, thank you for your help with this extremely confusing subject!

Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I was investigated by Service Canada EI

I was investigated by Service Canada for certain EI reporting errors that I had made in 2012 and 2013. Based on the letters they sent me I agreed to the errors made. Whilst I am waiting on their decision I have noticed certain EI reporting errors made in 2015 . I have not received any letter from them to this effect. I would like to now disclose this error and amount to Service Canada. Will this be treated as a Voluntary Disclosure and what ate the chances that I will not be penalized or prosecuted for the same.
