(WBNG Binghamton) Lawmakers hop to use their influence to provide relief to clients of Aeden Waterford.

The payroll company shut down after failing to forward the tax money it collected from its clients to the I-R-S.

The IRS is holding clients responsible for paying what's owed which amounts to paying twice.

Senator Charles Schumer's office is urging the I-R-S to treat Aeden Waterford clients as victims and not criminals.

Senator Schumer wants the tax collectors to offer a compromise program to reduce the amount of taxes clients owe.

He is also urging the IRS to waive all interest and penalties and provide clients with lenient payment plans.
