Frank Huerta Jr's answer It sounds like a scammer. The IRS does not call you over the phone to threaten you with jail. I suggest you report the number to the Treasury Inspector General's office (TIGTA) https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact.shtml
If you should get another call say that you will report them to TIGTA.
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer the job of the board of directors is to supervise management (the executive officers). Ordinarily, the board would be heavily involved with the discussions surrounding the merger. At the very least, they'd be part of the discussion of what the board of the merged company would look like, which executives would have what role, what their compensation would be, as well as the compensation for executives who will be departing, and the overall pricing / valuation of the merger.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Hawaii but I noticed no one picked up your question in three weeks, and at this point, the issue could be moot. If the matter is still pending, it would be advisable for you to consult with an attorney in your area with experience in mediations. The type of mediation is not mentioned here, but mediations and arbitrations in general should have guidelines and rules that govern how they are to be conducted.
Lauren M. Sharon's answer Depending on what was said and your relationship with the person, you might want to make a police report so that incident can be documented and the police can explore the possibility of pressing charges. If it continues, or if you feel that your safety and property if threatened by the messages, you might want to consider consulting an attorney about the possibility of a restraining order.

Eric Steven Day's answer I am not a Hawaii based tax attorney but most states and the federal government don’t start the statute of limitations on collections or audits until you have actually filed a return or the government filed one for you. They may not have any record of you having income in some instances, but typically yes they can come after you indefinitely if you don’t file.
There are several "business" visas available. What kind of visa is suitable for your friend depends on the type of business and the amount of money he/she will invest in that business. Talk to an immigration attorney or have your friend talk to an immigration attorney in private to identify which visa is best for your friend.
Carl Shusterman's answer Unfortunately not. You can easily sponsor your parents for green cards, but a sibling petition for someone born in the Philippines takes over 20 years. (I know that first hand since my wife is from Cebu.)
If your parents find an alternate way to immigrate to the US, their 10-year-old daughter could immigrate together with them.
