Customer Question
Received notice from IRS...

Received notice from IRS yesterday that I owe approximately $20,000 in penalties for failing to file form 5500SF for 2015 and 2016 for my business which closed in June 2014. I was unaware these forms were required after the business closed and the 401K plan was terminated and forms submitted in 2014. I received no correspondence on this matter until November 2017, to which I immediately submitted the requested information. Harold Drennon

I see you have requested a phone call on your end, it didn't go through. I'll see if I can post one on my end.
