How the IRS doesnt literally kill people I will never know. I get a letter yesterday telling me I owe the IRS $250 from my 2009 taxes. That year I screwed up my taxes and left something out and had to amend them. After that point I owed money. But of course it wasnt until 2011 that they found that there was a problem at all. Whatever, I paid the money, moved on. Then I get this letter yesterday. WTF???
Evidentally there was a problem with the system and it never closed my actual account and kicked me out a bill for late fees and penelties. I almost threw up. It was only $250, but after everything I went through and the total I had to pay out after the screw up was discovered, I was ready to just die. I thought the drama was totally over. I even got a letter in the mail thanking me for my full payment.
I swear, if they do this to people and their bills are higher, its a shocking thing that people arent lining up to jump of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
