New here to the forum. I’m finding it very informative and helpful. A believer in honesty and transparency, I disclosed in section 24 of the SF-85P application I failed to file taxes for 4 years dating back to 2017 due to caring for loved ones who have since passed and a divorce which I explained in the application. Prior to background check process, I hired a IRS EA to file and have since paid in full the the 2 years I owed and awaiting refund for the other 2 years. I received a letter of concern via email requesting a response and to show proof of payment. I have all my receipts showing I’ve paid the 2 years owed. My “account transcripts” for 2 years reflect both payments but return transcripts do not. I’m assuming due the pandemic there’s lag time with the IRS updating filed tax statuses which I’m not able to provide proof to show they were actually filed. Any advice or suggestion on how to prepare a solid response which will put this issue to rest?
Thanks in advance.
