Section 6001 of the code states that when in the discretion of the Secretary he may servr notice on a party as to keep records to show if they are liable for any tax. Have you ever been served with this notice? How can you just give them a blanket look at anything you have when the Secretary has not fulfilled his obligation first. DON'T VOLUNTEER anything. I would write them a state that you have never received this required notice per that statute and let it go at that. The tax applies to citizens with FOREIGN EARNER INCOME and NONRESIDENT ALIENS engaged in business within the U.S. only. Does this fit your income? Go to www.taxgate.com on the web for great info.
