Welcome and thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you with your tax question.

 

If the tax liens are against the corporation and not you personally, it should not appear against you personally. Further, if you have been in communication with the IRS and have an offer in compromise pending a response, that is not considered "unresolved."

 

Please let me know if you require further information or clarification.

 

Thank you.

Do you think I can transfer the license to another corporation? Or how c

Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 4 years ago

You can transfer the license to another corporation, but you do not have an unresolved tax lien. As I mentioned in my initial response, the lien is not against you personally, and it is not unresolved.

Hi, Etna.

 

Unfortunately, I cannot view the attachment you sent. Due to privacy issues, JustAnswer has blocked some of the information by using "X's". If you were able to access it from the Public Records, tell me what the website is, the type of document and the date it was recorded. I may be able to narrow it down that way.

 

Thanks.

Some of the link is still being x'd out. It looks like it's on a State of Texas website. What's the date and title of the court document?

Everything is x'd out in your most recent reply. It looks like a social security number, which is the reason it is x'd out. Personal information cannot be revealed on the site.

A colleague on the site sent me a link which contained a Proposal for Decision pertaining to the issue involved in your initial question. I am reviewing it now and will send you my answer in a few minutes.

Hello again, Etna.

 

It would seem that DADS has the complete power to unilaterally refuse to issue/reissue a license because of an unresolved tax lien either on the corporation or any of its owners/directors as evidenced by the following:

 

DADS may deny an application for renewal of a license to an applicant if the applicant, or an affiliate, administrator, or controlling person of the applicant, for two years preceding the date of the application, has a history of an unresolved state or federal tax lien in any state or jurisdiction. 40 TEX. ADMIN. CODE § 97.11(g)(2)(A).

What further complicates the issue is the meaning of the word "unresolved" as DADS defines it, which seems to be ambiguous.

In your case, which is similar to what I have just read, an OIC was pending but no approval from the IRS had been received. According to DADS, this is "unresolved" even though there is nothing anywhere that defines "unresolved." I am not even certain that DADS would renew your license if the OIC had already been approved by the IRS.

It might be worth your while to contact DADS directly and let them know exactly what is going on and how you are planning to rectify the IRS situation. Sometimes it is better to voluntarily provide the information rather than DADS find out on its own.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks,

Barb

Do you think if it is possible to transfer our state license to another corporation?

Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 4 years ago

I'm sure it's possible to transfer your state license to another corporation, but I would be hesitant to do that because DADS might interpret that as you trying to hide the information about the tax liens from them.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


in fact that's what I'am hoping since we don't have a lien on our personal records.. and they check our criminal backgrounds, I don't know if they check the corporation public records

Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 4 years ago
After reading the information about that case, it would seem that they do a check of your personally. How extensive the check is, I have no idea. The check may reveal you to be an officer of the corporation, and then they might delve further and find the tax liens.

can I sell the corporation and assign some one else to be the administrator/owner?

Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 4 years ago
You could, but what about the tax liens? Every transaction is traceable, and I do not know how extensive DADS is with their background checks. As I said, I think DADS would not look favorably upon anything it might deem to be deception.
