in 2003 when corn and beans hit rock bottom my friend ( afarmer) lost his income. Ended up in prison on owi since then his income has been extremely limited and he has not filed taxes. He wants to clean this situation up. HOw should he do this?
He should file his returns going back to 2003 but only for those years in which he had a filing requirement. He can call the IRS at 800-829-1040 to obtain what is known as "Payor Information" - this will include his forms W-2 and 1099 and most other documents that he would need to prepare his returns.
