    Sure, the board that sees this information is not the IRS and they don't cross check information. If your ex-boss is willing to sign a noterized affidavit that should give the needed time for you to take the test. At least you can try this way.
    The 95% of people that you can't trust give the other 5% a bad name.

    Hello,

    From what, I am reading you are not ready to sit for the exam...it says "7years out the passed 10years in the trade". So you have 3 more years to get the first 4.5 years fixed.

My issue is this, my first boss (in the trade) had me partially on the books for 4.5 years. I spoke to him today bout what i should do and he said "i literally just found out that since you were on the books partially that it wont count." I know him well enough to know that he knew what he was doing. My question is what are my options? To prove my time in i have several options, one of which (that i see on the application form) is to get a noterized signed affidavit from a previous employer. So if he wanted couldnt he just do that for me? I will post a pic of the application forum. I feel so discouraged because ive worked so hard these 7 years and there is nothing more i want then getting my license.

If this was a witholding mistake and you were paid too much then, yes, you would owe the difference come April 15 and all would be good. But the employer knowingly cheated you and the IRS, first by pocketing some of your witholding then filing fraudulent witholding returns. It is he who faces federal charges, jail time, fines and restitution. So your SS account would be credited.

    There are lots of employers sitting in federal prison for doing exactly this.

    3 companies.

    1 was closed by the IRS for not paying the withholding taxes taken from the pay checks.
    License was revoked. The debt was $80k 25 years ago.
    No jail time. He went on to open another shop.
    Income reported to the IRS was NOT what I was paid. He kept the difference.

    Another company closed and never claimed I earned anything that year.
    That owner went on to open a strip club.

    3rd still open today.
    He also lied and under reported that I earned less. Keeping my taxes removed from my check in his pocket.

    All 3 cases the IRS could careless about my case.
    Fill out a form and proved proof from pay stubs.
    Same with Social Security. They don't just credit you. You have to prove your case, provide docs, and fill out the forms.

    Sorry if I come off as ticked off.
    But when you get ripped off and seen no results you may feel different.
    The IRS wont do nothing for the worker. SS will only correct your account with proof. Not saying the DOL won't, but never got anywhere with that.
    The IRS isn't going to someones doorstep with shotguns when they cheated on the taxes.

    The IRS and SS fixed your problem. You were not personally cheated out of anything. I don't see what else they could do for you anyway since you were not harmed, other than having a paperwork nuisance.

    I would be ticked off too. I guess $80K isn't enough for the IRS to bother with. Three GCs were in the paper the other day for doing that to the tune of hundreds of thousands each and all are doing time.

    the IRS usually goes after cheaters like that for maximum publicity as a way of scaring the rest of us into paying our taxes. they just can't catch and prosecute every tax cheater. so they try and scare everyone by making a big splash in the papers when they prosecute someone.
