"what can I do when someone threatened me they would sue me if I report them to the IRS"

Report them anyway. If you suspect or know of an individual or a business that is not complying with the tax laws then report them. They will not know you reported them unless you tell them or threaten them that you are going to do that.

Your identity will be kept confidential.

I have a California general partnership that i was supposed
I have a California general partnership that i was supposed to convert to an S Corp. I hired a lawyer to take care of the partnership liquidation and conversion into a corporation. Instead of indicating a straight conversion from a partnership to the corporation (by filing a special form with the Secretary of State), he opened a brand new corporation by filing the regular articles of organization. Now i am in limbo because i don't know what the tax consequences of such position. Now i need to liquidate my partnership, pay capital gains tax and then contribute assets to the new corporation. Is there an alternative way? Does my situation fall under Rev Rulling 84-111? What situation would apply if so? Is it "Asset Over"? If it doesn't fall under this revenue rulling, what am i supposed to do? In your answer, please also detail the steps that i need to take step by step. Please use layman language.
