wondering if our taxes will ever be done!!

September 25th, 2022 at 05:38 am

Well we sent our taxes on the 17th january this year..yes via snail mail as it's the only way we can do it without it costing us over $300 plus to get them is now 25th sept and we haven't even heard if they have them..nothing is logged into their computer when we check online...I'm not going to chase it up..the last lot from 2019 & 2020 were just completed this year and was a we will wait and see what happens will see if they eventually get to them...I usually send them where they have to sign for them as it is very personal information and we don't live there and if someone gets a hold of the info then they could use it and we would never know....but still haven't heard from them!! the IRS has got to be one of the most incompetent places we have dealt with since covid started

    The latest big funding bill passed by US Congress includes funding to hire 87,000 new IRS employees.
    I hope that one of them helps you!

    As Lots of Ideas wrote, hope all these new IRS agents will benefit one of them helping you.

    My son had to send his by snail mail. It took him six months to receive his refund and we live here. They are so screwed up. They really should have an option for doing it electronically overseas without it costing an arm and a leg.

    Some - I hope initially a lot - of the 87,000:new hires will be technology workers.

    I laughed during the Senate debate on the bill when Senators were pointing out that the current IRS computer applications are written in COBOL. I was a COBOL programmer way back in 1981 and I feel really proud that our code lasted so well. We were called ‘dinosaurs’ in the years leading up to Y2K - we used 6 digit dates to save space when space mattered…but our programs were ‘patched’ and they soldier on. Most COBOL programmers are retired or in Heaven now…

    Anyway, so much can be automated if the IRS has the staff to do it and I really hope they do.

    I hope you are all right and they do hire more people and have some training for the job...every single person I spoke to told me something completely different and wrote different things on our file...luckyrobin yes I wish they did have that option..but I guess like a lot of countries they are worried about security...not that sending that info through snail mail is any better...fingers crossed it gets done soon
