I need any and all help you fellow fools can provide me with. Here's the problem: I got a letter from the IRS saying I owe $2000 for not reporting self-employment income last year. The company that I worked for as a specialist in retail sent to the IRS a 1099-MISC stating they had paid me 2 grand. I never received a single dollar from them. The IRS says the burden of proof is on me to prove I never received the money, but I can't use my bank statements as evidence because they "don't know how many bank accounts I have." I have called the IRS several times, they said request a letter from the company explaining you never got the money. Any help is appreciated.
