the preparer's office was raided by police and all of the files for all of their clients were taken, so I am told. Our returns were overdue for 3 years and we were in the process of catching up. We have asked the police to return the documents but they say they will not until the investigation is complete. Now we are worried that we will not only receive fines and penalties from FTB (California) and IRS, but possibly held criminally liable for failure to file, as officers / partners responsible for filing. Any solutions we can deploy for this conundrum?
