You were right. Having taken your advice, I called the IRS this morning and after 45 minutes they told me that there was no record of the payment or the authorization to debit my bank account thus sending me back to my CPA who says that the ACH payment option was checked to be paid just the same as the state was (and the state was deducted as I previously mentioned).

Now he is in the process of compiling evidence that the IRS (who says they are not at fault and that the ACH platform is pretty well flawless) "is full of crap." --CPA's verbatim response.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion, we are now going through the process of fullfilling the "burden of proof" required to avoid additional penalties and interest.

Thanks again.
