I was in a live in relationship with a man and we started

Customer Question
I was in a...
I was in a live in relationship with a man and we started a business. The trucking company was in my name. The relationship ended, he was still running the company. I obtained a document from a local attorney listing me as seller and this man as buyer. The business would stay in my name until the longest loan on the business was paid off. The document stated that he was fully responsible for business.... taxes, employees, maintain equipment, etc.. I now have tax liens and levies, because taxes were never filed. Late 2008 I was able to gain access to all paperwork for the company. I seperated by year, hired a CPA, gave CPA POA to file. I have been told by IRS that statue of limitations have run out and that I can not file taxes on the business 1998-2003. The company was in my name only, my SS number. I owe over 1.3 million Federal alone. Help!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
