We have received numerous calls from taxpayers who are under audit with the IRS with respect to their participation in the Sea Nine VEBA, a 419A(f)(6) multiple employer welfare benefit plan. The IRS audits are generally managed in one of several upstate New York offices of the IRS. Williams Coulson and Michael Lloyd have represented more than 400 clients in IRS audits in the last three years with respect to participation in 419 plans and more than 200 of those audits were with the New York offices of the IRS.
Williams Coulson and Michael Lloyd have represented clients who have participated in the Sea Nine VEBAs in IRS Examination Audits, IRS Appeals and the United States Tax Court. Williams Coulson has also represented clients in connection with claims against Sea Nine, Ken Elliott and the Insurers.
