Fortunately we had extensive documentation showing we had payed all that was needed, but the IRS can go back as far as they think they can get away with if they think you have defrauded them. Just because they ignore your friends today, doesn't mean they will get away with it forever. Which is as it should be.

If you had documentation showing you had paid, how come the IRS was asking about it? They should have had the records, too. I don't understand this.
