Case #19-0044327


Tax: Client is an established 501(c)(4) organization with a mission to acquire and maintain facilities to accommodate the offices and programmatic activities of other nonprofits, including labor, media, and community organizations. Client had not paid state income tax for a 20-year period (1990-2010), and received a bill for $30,000 in back taxes in 2011. Client’s accountant during that period had been based in New Orleans and lost its records in Hurricane Katrina, so client cannot recreate most of its tax filings. Client has unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and seeks assistance with negotiating a reduced payment in order to avoid raising rents for its tenants.
