A friend's brother is totally disabled, in a nursing home for life, aged about 50. He has no money whatsoever. Years ago the IRS was sending letters saying he owed $3K in taxes. The letters were ignored for years. Now he is getting letters from a collection agency. And calls. He himself doesn't get the letters or calls, since he is not able to talk, think, or anything. His brother gets the letters.

No ones for sure if he even really owes the money. It would be a very difficult audit to figure that out.

Any suggestions?
