The "Lex-Pollution" Tax Audit
"TTT, here is the language of the warning I received:
By now you would or should have received in the mail a standard letter from Lexolution on Lex letterhead which reads: we are being audited by the NYS Taxation and Finance Department to determine compliance with the state's regulations regarding income tax withholding.
As part of the audit, we were asked to contact a number of current and former employees and request they complete form AU-7, the "Employee Wage Statement" (enclosed.)
This form lays out wages paid by Lexolution to you in 2005, 2006 and 2007 on which either
1) no state tax was withheld, corresponding to pay periods when you requested that you be classified as "exempt" in our payroll system, or
2) due to changes in withholding status you asked us to implement during the withholding period, it appears that an incorrect amount of tax was withheld.
On the form, you are asked to certify that these wages were reported on your NYS tax returns in the appropriate years, and that you have paid the taxes due on these wages.
Please return the AU-7 form in the enclosed post paid envelop, by 12/12/08. If you do not return the AU-7, we will note that in our response to the auditor.
I hope they audit and fine Dickhead Osman for his persistent abuse and violations.
What about an OSHA and/or NYC Fire Department inspection of Lex sites? That would be awesome to have them up to code.
