So we thought we were done with taxes...but we got a letter in today stating they need us to send forms which we sent at the time....I swear the US govt has to be one of the most incompetent "businesses" we have ever had to deal with and trying to get anything done is damn near now we have to call them..they gave us 30 days to respond to them..we got the letter today 6 weeks that time has lapsed...they cashed our owed cheque in not sure why it is still ongoing..I swear they just do anything to mess with people!!

So more late night and expensive phone calls because they can't do their job...maybe just won't do taxes anymore!

Social security is worse than taxes!!

So we want to change our bank and we were able to do everything fairly easily..but my hubbys US social security gets put directly into our account (started 13 years ago) we call them (1am our time) and they start asking questions...we answer them....we get to our acct details we give them to them..they say its not right they need a routing number...I tell them we use swift codes here and give it to them...doesn't I google our bank and finally find a routing number...nope that doesn't work we ask them what we can do to get this we go to our bank the next day and talk to them about it and they have no clue what they are talking about because they do it but only use swift codes...Now I know that banking has changed a lot over 13 years and we can't get an online account because we dont have a US we call SS back and explain this to see what we can do to change it...their need to take ID and your banking details to the nearest office....I said do you know where our nearest office's not going to happen....yes our nearest office is in the Phillipines....that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard...we couldnt get forms to fill out or anything so not sure how we are going to get this done....always something with the US govt departments and they don't make it easy for people living overseas!!

Rant's just been very frustrating!!
