IRS says no payment was made
Taxpayer is getting IRS letters saying that estate tax returns were filed for years as recently as 2003but payments were not made. Taxpayer says payments were made but proof is hard to come by since bank they were using at the time has been bought by another bank. The taxpayers certainly do not keep records that old. Do we have any alternative to paying what is asked? The amounts are small but the principle of the thing sticks in my craw and that of my client. I don't know if this is relevant but taxpayer stopped filing the trust returns in 04 and closed out trusts in 07 and 08 and I am in the process of cleaning up that mess.
