Who waits until the last minute? Mine have been done for months.
My taxes are pretty simple as well. I have someone do mine though for the last five years because IRS sent my refund to someone else and that year I didn't get my refund until August! I had to prove I was me and now have to file with a PIN. I was beyond furious.I filed electronically on April 30th and five days later my refund was in my bank account. My taxes are straight up simple though - I was able to do the entire thing in less than ten minutes. That might be why it turned around so quickly.
I always did my own taxes until IRS sent my refund to someone else. My tax lady is great. Definitely an IRS problem.Sounds like you need a new someone to do your taxes. Have you tried them yourself electronically lately? They walk you through each step and there is support in the form of a chat if you get lost. What's really nice is that they keep you posted on the status of your taxes - like what your refund should be and when you file, they inform you that it was filed, then when it's accepted, you're informed about that. I have to admit I was astonished about how quickly they turned it around - in the past it's taken up to two weeks.
What's even stranger...it sounds like the same people are the ones calling me all the time about my expiring vehicle warranty.Double double yikes.
I get a phone call at least twice a week from an officer at Social Security that says there is fraudulent activity on my number and I'm in deep doggie poo. I still don't understand why this country is hiring officers from Mexico and China to help Americans with fraudulent activity when there are so many Americans in need of a job. I guess it's probably all the stimulus money causing it.
That's how the conversation usually goes: after pressing "1" to talk to a rep, I Id the '78 as the one they must be calling about. "Nooo....don't you have any other vehicles?..something newer? Me: "oh..then you must be calling about my '89 F-250 then!" "Nooo....." Me (interrupting): "oh I know..I know..my 1959 Triumph TR3...." CLICKhow did you ever let the warranty expire in the 78 Bronco
My co-worker (a retired cop) likes to mess with the ones who call about finding his name associated with a car in Texas filled with cocaine. One day he spent nearly an hour talking to them and getting passed around until they finally hung up on him.I get several a week. If I have the inclination, I'll screw with them as long as I can keep them going before they get disgusted and hang up.
