Seriously. IRS sends a nice big fat "We lost some of your 2006 tax return info, so you owe use $3,000"

I respond back with all the missing schedule D info. Today letter comes in the mail from the IRS "Thanks for the $12 you acknowledged you owed us. Guess what, you still owe us $2,988, cause we lost/didn't read any of your schedule D information. Again. Please send it to us".

Wife calls them (since she got the letter and I am at work), IRS person on the phone "Well, only include the pertinent information, highlighted and with stickies"

Oh, my bad I did everything except the stickies. I guess the IRS manual states "Only read information denoted by a sticky, shred everything else". That or it was the double sided photocopying. Must be real hard flipping those pages. Or possibly they got confused when they read the cover letter thinking there wasn't anything else in the envelope.

Seriously, this is ridiculous. I really just want to get audited so I can get a person with a room temperature IQ to read the damn forms.

PS Yeah, they STILL don't have the stock cost basis information; because they STILL refuse to read my damn Schedule D.

Re: Mein Gott

Opps, gets better.

Originally they added my cost basis to the actual sales price to come up with $29k. Guess what they did this time, they added the cost basis back in to the $29k...so they think it is taxes owed on $40k (aparently it wasn't $3k, they think it is $4,600 we owe now).

I am 2 seconds from just calling my local tax advocate and hoping like hell they can straighten this pile of feces out.

Re: Mein Gott

This is one scenario where it would have paid to have had a professional prepare your return. Then they'd be the ones having to deal with this BS

Re: Mein Gott

True. It would be nice if someone else was dealing with this crap.

It really is almost comical reading the letters how messed up they've made this straight forward crap (IE read the damn forms I send you. They're your own damn forms afterall!)
