The Check is in the Mail…or is it?

   Posted by: BobMcNeil   in IRS

I received a letter from Debra J. Scott, Manager, Accounting Branch, who works in the IRS office in Ogden, Utah. The letter stated that a check paid to the IRS on July 23, 2007, in the amount of $9,558.30, had not been accepted by the bank because of a stop payment order.

The letter went on to say that $9,558.30 was now due from me.

This check did not come from me, but was paid by a third party on my behalf, in response to a levy issued by Mr. Roger Caris, Revenue Officer, here in Houston, Texas.

I spoke to the person who sent the check, who confirmed that it had been returned as a result of a stop payment order made at the request of Mr. Caris. Apparently, even though the third party sent the check directly to Mr. Caris in a stamped envelope, addressed in his own handwriting, he did not receive it.

So, a check sent to Mr. Caris, in a stamped envelope, addressed in his own handwriting, placed in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service, did not make it 30 miles across Houston.

A replacement check has since been issued, and $9,558.30 of money due me, has now been confiscated by the Internal Revenue Service.
