Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Can you clarify if that the IRS or a third party who offered a payoff amount and charging a fee $150 for that ?What is the reason for the payoff?
Filing late is not an issue on most situations.But whether your father has any tax liability which is unpaid or paid after the due date?If yes - he might be subject to the late payment penalty and interest charges?
What that $150 fee for?Did your father receive any letter from the IRS?
It sound as mistake.
Most likely that new bill is send by a different department and it was issued before his record was updated.
I might suggest to contact the IRS directly and verify.
