RE: XXXXXXX, LLC EIN XXXXXXXXX
After my conversation with Ms. BXXXXXXXXXX today (employee # XXXXXXX), I am enclosing $550.06 for penalites for not getting our return in on time. You indicated the return arrived June 2, 2010, instead of by April 15, 2010. There was no tax due, as the business was liquidated. In fact, we sent form 8849 to you on May 21, 2009, almost a year previously, indicating our remaining equipment had been sold. However, your letter said the fine was $549.21, but apparently it increases daily, so you calculated when it would arrive to cover the increased fine.
How would we know this fine was assessed until you contacted us almost a year later? Shouldn’t there be some grace for this? Isn’t it your responsibility to notify us in a timely manner?
Ms. BXXXXXXXXXX indicated she understood the business is liquidated, and saw no other fines or fees levied against this company. I sincerely hope so, as there is no phone, no checking account, nothing left.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience, should there be any question or problem regarding this matter. Hopefully this check settles all affairs in this matter.
