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.
