Irs Losing Documents And Extension Requests

Published on May 31, 2013

Over the last year or so I've noticed an increasing occurrence of the IRS saying that they never received correspondence from an exempt organization or that they never received an extension request for Form 990. I've recently had the IRS claim that they have no record of Form 8868 that I filed electronically and for which I have documentation that it was received by and accepted by the IRS. In this video I talk about this situation and what tax-exempt organizations and their return preparers need to do to protect themselves from late-filing penalties in these types of situations.
