tax question

okay so my hubby owed in on taxes last year and they took the majority of it but sent him a small amount. now this year they are sending him letters that he still owes in so he called one of those tax attorneys that you see on tv and they told him to call irs and deal with it through them cuz they would charge him more than the irs says he owes. he also told him if they sent you anything back last year than you are paid up cuz if not they would have kept it all. now i know nothing about the irs and the way they work does anyone know if this is true? i mean if they sent him a small refund does that mean they took all the money that was owed to them?

  • if they sent him a refund then he should be paid up. Like everything else they could have made a mistake. Call and talk to a person not a machine

  • all I know about the IRS is be prepared to hold. You may hold 45 mins, but you will get a live person and they will help you deal with it Just keep calling.

  • Definitely deal directly with the IRS. They make mistakes too, and it sounds like they made one here. IF they sent him ANY refund at all then they took their portion out of it first. Get your tax papers from last year and visit your local tax office. Be ready to prove what you're saying, because you'll have to show them proof and then make DAMN sure you get the release form FROM them showing you do not owe anything. Then keep everything for at least the next 10 years.
