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.========>>as a TP it is your basic responsibility to file returns and pay state income taxes to your state dept of revenue whether you receive a letter from your state or not. since your state did not receive your payment, you need to pay your balance due to avoid additional penalties, fees, interest, or possible collection actions.
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.=======>>as mentioned above;
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??========>>IN your situation I guess the best way is to directly contact the dept of revenue of your state for more accurate info and advice.
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 can say that even if you can e-file your federal return and then subsequently mail in your state return and may forget to file your state or something?? Please contact the dept of your state revenue for more accurate info in detail. I cannot tell you in which situation you were at that time.
