Thought I'd vent a bit of steam here... Some time ago we received a letter from the IRS stating that THEY owe US $1,000 (overpaid on taxes). This was followed shortly by another letter from the IRS stating that THEY owe US $7,000 (overpaid on taxes). We wasted about $250 to a CPA to straighten this out, to no avail. Today we got a letter from the IRS stating WE owe THEM $10,000, which includes unpaid tax, penalties, and interest. I called local IRS office and was told to call my CPA, "our system is down". So what does the IRS use for computing, desktop abacuses left over from the crusades? And how about their hiring practices, do they have an IQ cap? If you score above 75 on a standard IQ test you cannot work there? Useless motherf**kers. [pissed]

Actually I think their system is an old 70s era Data General.

Heh heh heh! Once they start sending you paper you are just screwed. Send them some paper back. Just put a bunch of numbers and BS in there somewhere. Most of them can't read anyway. [:D] (Just joking IRS guys. [:)] I love the IRS, I really really do.)

I'm surprised they didn't beat you up when you pointed that out.

Heh heh the IRS, gotta love 'em. A few years ago I received a note from the IRS stating I owed the U$60. Ok, I thought it was valid so I send a check. Five days later I got a U$62 refund check. Smiled and cashed it. A week goes by and there is the notice I owe U$42. Payed and sure enough a week alter the refund of U$ 41 came. This was fun so I played along. After a year I was down to sending checks for 52 cents and got 54 cent refund checks. It sort of just faded out on its own after 14 months. Fritz

I got a letter a few months ago stating there were differences between my federal and state returns for 98 and 99. I check and it looked like I messed up on my state so I call them and tell them that, and then 2 months go by and I get a bill for $529!!! It included $80 in interest from the end of the tax year to now!! I was mad, but I sure wasn't going to call them and complain! I might get audited or something! It's scary!!

When I worked for Unisys we had the support contract for the IRS computers. Wonderful IBM PS2 286 machines...

red dragon, A few years ago i received a letter just like yours, so i called the irs up and explained to them that i was unaware that i had made a mistake and it really wasn't fair for me to pay the interest as it took them 2 years to inform me of my mistake, the lady at the irs agreed with me and dropped the interest fee. You never know they may be in a good mood that day and cut you a brake if you call them. AR-ERIC

Be careful about who does your taxes, Wolfpack. Or, somebody might be slipping something besides paper 'tween your cheeks. [;)]

The IRS is the closest thing we have to Gestapo in this country. My Dad was told he owed $90 and change that he didn't agree with. He fought it on principle. In the end he paid just under $1200 to have them off his back. They froze his accounts, garnished his pay... guilty till proven innocent.

From 1983 until 1990 $42,000 had turned into $126,000. NOT ONE NOTICE. In the entire I world I "HATE" one entity - the IRS. (And two individuals.) To this moment I am unable to rationally converse on this subject.

I only hope that you really don't believe your post. These posts are being read by others else I would probably stop now. In the above portion of your post there is no accuracy. None.
