So I just got a note in the mail from the IRS claiming that I owe on unclaimed income from 2007. It was from a place I played at with a cover band that is now defunct(the band is defunct not the venue). I used to collect and sign for the checks and pay the guys out of that(the place would always cash the check on the spot). I never received anything in the mail from the venue that year like I would a regular employer so I didn't think anything of it. I don't know, perhaps they don't have to send anything. Basically I was naive at the time and didn't consider this stuff. We had about 3 or 4 venues that we played at regularly and everyone had a venue where they signed for the money and all that. If I tried to contact these guys now I'm sure I'd get the cold shoulder as far as chipping in towards this bill. I don't have their SSN's so I can't do anything with that. Basically I'm currently saddled with a $1300 tax bill from gigs I did two years ago. Am I completely screwed on this one or is there anything I can do to at least reduce this amount? Yes I know I was stupid and my lesson has been learned.
