You have taken all necessary steps to inform the authorities. If you have been damaged you can certainly speak to an attorney about how to recover your damages.

This isn't really an IRS issue. You may want to order your IRS transcripts for the past 8 years to see if anything doesn't look right. Also you may want to file a withdrawal as registered agent with the secretary of state. Revistered age ts don't have legal liability, tax liability or interest in the business. No Social Security number is required.
