oh, I remember

Oh, I remember what I was going to say. We got new copies of all our tax stuff, so we can do our taxes now. I’ll have to do that this weekend. Which is to say, I’ll go over to H&R Murphy and get Mom to do ’em. :)

Oh. And we got another letter from the IRS, who finally explained what the actual damned problem was in words that I understood, and I’m afraid they might be right, we might owe them money. Blblbht.

So that wasn’t very exciting, was it?

  1. If it is actual taxes owed, you will have to pay that. If there is a portion that is penalty and interest, you can write a letter to the IRS appealing those charges.

    You can write up something explaining how it happened that these taxes were not deposited in a timely manner, that you were unaware of the situation, and steps taken so this does not happen again, etc, and if this is the first penalty situation you have been in, they will usually waive any additional fees on top of the taxes with only a warning. As long as they realize that you are not deliberately withholding from them out of malice or attempting to fraud the government, they can be lenient.

    These things take about 4-6 weeks for a response, however, but you can request that they place a hold on your account in the interim so you do not assess any further sort of penalties and fees.

    Just in case you’re in that situation, of course. If not, ignore me!
