Is it too late to fix my big tax mistake with WI DOR?

Around the the end of last year I received a letter from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue that said I never filed my taxes in 2008 and 2009. They said they estimated my income for each year and were demanding payment. They also charged me almost $2,600 in interest. The thing is, they NEVER sent me any notice that I had not filed until then. I never received anything in the mail.

Shouldn't they have notified me years ago that they never received a return? It's like they just let the years add up so they could charge me interest.

Anyway, I did make a big mistake which I take full responsibility for. They said I could dispute the claim within 60 days but I didn't take care of it in time. I know that was my fault. But I still don't feel I should have to pay interest on an income that I didn't earn. Now they are simply demanding the money and have already placed a lien on my bank account.

Is there anything I can do? Is it still possible to submit those returns??

The weird thing is, I checked with the IRS and they show that I did file with them in 2009, so I can't see why I wouldn't have filed with WI DOR as well. IIRC, I wasn't required to file in 2008 (was unemployed that year).

I guess th ebest way is to contact the dept of revenue of your home state of WI ASAP for sure.

Yeah, I just figured I would ask here first just incase they gave me false information. The people who work the phones don't know everything.

Everything worked out though. I thought the estimated income was literally just an estimate but they had my work on file and that is how they came up with the figure. They told me I can still file and take care of this properly. They even said that I probably won't owe any money because state tax had been withheld from my earnings (I guess I wasn't unemployed that year like I thought lol). They also said that they won't place any more liens on me and that the one they placed was a one time deal.

So I'm requesting a copy of my tax return from the IRS so I'll have all my income information. Then I'll file and hopefully everything will be as they said.

Anyway, life lesson learned. I won't be making this mistake again and I'm definitely going to make sure I keep track of all my records.

Depending on your state and local jurisdiction, related withholding might apply.

1. They also said that they won't place any more liens on me and that the one they placed was a one time deal.=====??Good news good for you.

So I'm requesting a copy of my tax return from the IRS so I'll have all my income information. Then I'll file and hopefully everything will be as they said.====> There are three options for obtaining free copies of your federal tax return information ? on the web, by phone or by mail.The IRS does not charge a fee for transcripts, which are presently available for the current tax year as well as the past three tax years. A tax return transcript shows most line items from your tax return as it was originally filed, including any accompanying forms and schedules. It does not reflect any changes made after the return was filed.A tax account transcript shows any later adjustments either you or the IRS made after the tax return was filed. This transcript shows basic data ? including marital status, type of return filed, adjusted gross income and taxable income.To request either transcript online, go to http://www.irs.gov and look for our new online tool called Order A Transcript. To order by phone, call 800-908-9946 and follow the prompts in the recorded message
