LEESVILLE, La. (AP) - The attorney for the city of Leesville says he’s confident the municipality can negotiate a lower penalty than the $403,000 fine it was slapped with by the Internal Revenue Service in August.

City Attorney Chuck Dowden tells the American Press (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb ) he has been in correspondence with the IRS. He says the city failed to properly file employee wage forms with the agency for the 2010 calendar year. He said the city has since supplied the documents.

Dowden says the city has no record of any attempt by the IRS to inform the city of the error. Dowden says he asked the agency for any documentation or correspondence on behalf of the IRS, the agency responded in a letter asking for a 60-day extension to fill the request.
