Nah but seriously so long as you haven't done anything illegal you should be fine. If you did, seek legal advice, not from total degenerates on Veeky Forums

Don't stress user, just be honest with them and have your employer sign a letter that you write verifying that you barley work the counter and when you do you don't make tips. Maybe write that you made like 15 dollars in tips and didnt think you needed to report that. Just be honest.

Bro, calm down. I work in another country's tax administration and maybe I can be of assistance in guiding you through what has happened.

Now, what does the entire letter say?

If you didn't report all your tips, you should file Form(s) 1040X, Amend US Invdividual Tax Income Tax Return(s), include Form(s) 4137, and send the return(s) to the contact name and address listed above within 30 days from the date of this letter.

This letter is not notification of a formal examination, but a request that you review the amount of tips you reported to your employer(s) and on your tax return(s) for accuracy and take the appropriate action.

this is the third time they've sent it

Ok - we have something similar, where material differences between stated income and industry averages can trigger reviews/audits.

First of all - stay calm, user. I know it can be difficult, but so long as your shit is in order - and you show compliance - I believe you will be okay.

Now, if you didn't receive any tip income that amendment form *might* not be required. What is that form 4137 for though? Also, are you actually able to contact someone from the IRS to talk about this case (I say case not as in an audit case).

Do you get group certificates at the end of each tax year depicting your income as well? On an unrelated note, you may want to ask your employer for a letter stating that, due to your role, you don't receive much tips (or any at all, if that is the case).

Also, in response to your earlier post at - if it escalates to audit, they might request bank statements (I'm not certain how they'd deal with it if they reach that stage, though).

Just keep your cool, user. Sure, you've received a notice - but if you've been compliant/can explain the discrepancy, you should be okay.

Definitely get into contact with them via phone though, if possible - best to get these things sorted and recorded on file in case it arises again.

I hope that helps somewhat. Keep calm - even though they say its a 6k discrepency, stating to them your situation will go a long length in solving this situation, I believe.

lso, are you actually able to contact someone from the IRS to talk about this case

I've called them everyday for the last 14 days with the number provided on the document and they haven't answered nor called back (*leave voice mail with number every time)

massdebater

Persist with this everyday, or at least as often as possible. Given that the other avenues aren't as suitable (given that they're requesting you to declare tips you received - if any), you may just have to wait on it.

Whilst you were writing your response, I had a brief look at form 4137. I noticed that it said this on page 2:

Penalty for not reporting tips. If you didn’t report tips to your employer as required, you may be charged a penalty equal to 50% of the social security, Medicare, and Additional Medicare Taxes due on those tips. You can avoid this penalty if you can show (in a statement attached to your return) that your failure to report tips to your employer was due to reasonable cause and not due to willful neglect.

This might be the avenue you are looking for. If you can get a written statement from your employer telling them that either you didn't earn tips/earned below the average (whatever it was, depending on what actually happened) you may not be liable for that 50% penalty. Your own written statement explaining your situation should also be included here, at the very least.

How many tips would you say you make monthly? The form states that, if you earn less than $20/month, you don't need to declare them.

King_Martha
King_Martha

this is why theres alot of restuarants and service based industryies that total all the tips and evenly disperse them amongst servers or the whole staff. so tips can eaily be reported and recorded by the buisiness.
Having the business owners just guess at tips is a completle fucking joke.
You need to tell your bosses about this.

I made 2,000, they think I made 8,000 so there's 6,000 unreported (not exact amounts obv). We're told to keep a log at home, tallying what we make during the month and saving what we made for that month, so I have a log with 12 numbers.

Methnerd

You might want to consider providing them with a copy of that log, and any receipts/docos provided in tallying those numbers (if possible).

Sorry I can't be of much further help, but it's late and I've got work tomorrow. Just be open and transparent in all your dealings, and if you've been compliant you're gonna be ok. Just remember to make sure that they know about your works situation too!

America is a 3rd world shithole, retard. Americans seem to think that everybody admires and looks up to burgerland, when this couldn't possibly be further from the truth. Everybody laughs at you fat sacks of shit. Get fucked by your government, dickhead. Btw, we dont even have niggers where I'm from, so keep coping.
