Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Uncle Sugar Gives, and Uncle Sugar Taketh Away. By now, y’all have heard that the majority of tax returns are getting double-special oversight by the IRS for -whatever- reason. Mine, I did my taxes (painfully) back on the day that I got my last form from my employers. The return was for a small amount, which I’ll mention because it’s pertinent. I was supposed to get $522 back. And I waited.
Then, the news talked about the double-secret probation hand-jamming that the fucking Vultures were doing, and I was all like ‘fuckin’ great.’ Nothing went on until yesterday.
Where I got a thick envelope in the mail from said-Vultures.
Nothing quite matches that sinking feeling when you get a thick envelope with a return Addy of the IRS… I got in and of course, opened it. Seems I got hit with a bill. $78 to be exact. Which really irks the shit out of me. The excuses were as such (which make no sense to me)
None of this makes sense. I have no dependents.Essentially, they’re saying that I owe $78 because they didn’t take out enough of the tax. Payments was $2072… total tax was $2150… OK… $78
But what happened to the $522 that they owed me?
Completely at a loss here. Add on they also recently had a ‘review’ of my VA Compensation, and decided that because there was a two-year gap in my marital status, that they took my marriage bennie away. That’s $150 monthly I’m down now…
Now, Maybe you smarter folks out there can figure it out, but I noticed that the $522, and the $78? That’s a single stimulus payment… the $600 they sent me… are they now saying that wasn’t a freebie? I don’t remember that being part of the deal? Maybe it is, maybe it ain’t? Maybe one of you geniuses out there can figure it out for me, as it’s all fucked up. As far as I knew, the stimulus was free cash… does that mean that next year I’m going to ‘owe’ them the money they ‘fronted’ to me?
If so, I would have never cashed those checks
I wonder how many people are having the same issues? I’m just gonna pay it, as it’s the safer way to go… even though it is a bite that was unexpected, and the $522 I was hoping/counting on? Dust in the wind apparently…Let me know…
