Uncle Sam knows how to write a bill!

PostBy: Freddy On: Mon Apr 22, 2013 6:29 pm

Due to Uncle Billy's cancer & chemo he didn't file his 2011 taxes. I got them done for him & mailed the IRS over $8,000..... today we got a "late fee".....

Let's see

Failure to pay estimated tax: $99.00

Failure to pay taxes: .5% interest: $353.82

Failure to file: (5 months late at 4.5% a month): $1,326.82

Interest on monies not paid: $212.33

Total due within 30 days: $1,892.97


I phoned the IRS. Only on hold for 45 minutes....twice.... I spent the afternoon doing paper work... they might remove or reduce some of the charges "If they accept the explanation as reasonable cause".

I hope they answer quickly....if it's not paid before May 20th.... it's late again!

Tell them you'll have Uncle Billy call them when he gets a chance.
What ever you do, don't send them any money. Send them an
explanation but no money. When they send another letter, send them
back an explanation, but never any money. After a while they get the
message and stop.

You need to go to nearest fed IRS building,appointment with Agent, sit down go thru it with IRS agent, come to agreeable terms, pay it on the spot, with agrement in writing. They willl come back after you if they haven't put it in writing. Been there done that. thru the mail and phone is not a paper document that shows terms, and paid in full. And it will be a month or so before they get back to you on anything over the phone on paper. in other words.... they don't care about you, Just want the revenue to keep building.

Give the IRS Uncle Billys new address and have them send everything there. (I know someone that did that)

Written pages went out in the mail. I got the forms they requested, filled them all out, added documentation showing me as legal representative, a copy of the death certificate and requested that all fees be dropped & abated. All we can do is wait for a response.

i know... dealt with them for several years of taxes not paid nor filed. Payroll where i was working, when i did rigght thing to get it taken care of, asked mre if i could ssurvive on $25 a week. i ? what she meant.. she said IRS has sent paperwork to garnish my entire check but $50 for every two week pay period. IRS DIDN"T contact me, they went direct to my employeer with court garnish papers. So if you want to play the hope & wait game with them, you will lose, they have the upper hand. GO TO THEM get it done IMMEDIATELY!!!! No mail or phones, These are not a legal binding agreements, just part of the proscess, which can take months!!!!!! And it will.
