I just received one of these today from the Automated Collection
System. The cover page is asking for phone numbers and at the top
right of each page is a taxpayer ID that does not look familiar at
all. The second page which shows it is a Letter 2050 (Rev 01-2004)(LT-
16), on the lower left corner has a barcode with my assigned SSN with a
103 at the end and speaks to the overdue taxes. The third page speaks
to Penalty and Interest. I attempted communication with the IRS a long
time ago asking them to "show me the law", and I never did receive a
reply. I stopped filing a tax return around 1998, but still pay
through my job. On my W-4 I have always signed it with reservation of
all right (if that really does anything). In short, they are giving me
10 days to contact them with the threat of seizing wages or property
and I am looking for some guidance in this matter and am willing to pay
Thanks in advance.
