    Taxes

    This is how I feel every year when I turn in my taxes.http://news.msn.com/us/ex-us-defense...urn-is-unknown
    Has anyone ever called their help line and actually got help. I've done my taxes every year except for 2009. That was the year I withdrew the money from an IRA that I started several years ago with $5,000. I had no record showing that I started the IRA with after tax money and the bank had been under at least 4 different owners, so I went to a CPA and explained to her what I did. She charged me $220 and I got a letter back from the IRS telling me that I owed taxes on the $5000 that I had already paid the taxes on. So, I did some research and found out that she was supposed to fill out another form for the $5000. So, I filled out the form and sent it back and they sent me a letter back saying that everything was ok. So, I wasted $220 going to a CPA that didn't know any more than I did.

    This year I got audited for 2011. They sent me a letter saying I owed another $1348. The IRS got the same information that I got from Optum Bank HSA showing that I spent $2704 on my healthcare which was all tax deductible. So, I went to my account and made copies of all my receipts and sent them to them and explained to them how a HSA works. I also sent them a check for $39 that they claimed was a dividend on a life insurance policy. They sent me a letter back saying everything was ok. So, just in case you get audited, doesn't mean they are right.

    Dammit Don, pay your fair share and be happy that King Obama doesn't come looking for more.

    I love having a tax-free living. But I would prefer to be paying taxes.

    Dammit Justin, you need to get in on the fair share giving part of the equation.

    Re: Taxes

    Ya know, I actually called the IRS about 3 years ago, to ask them some questions about my HSA before I filled out my tax returns, and the guy on the line shocked me with how friendly and helpful he was. I also didn't have to wait more than a minute to get to talk to someone. That was the only time I ever actually just directly called the IRS, and I wasn't sure if they were always that helpful over the phone, or if I was just lucky. The guy that I talked to went into detail about everything I asked him about, without sounding confusing. It still doesn't make it easier for me to hand over money to the idiot feds though...

    You can't make this stuff up. I guess this is the only way to truly get money from the bleeding heart liberals/progressives around the world.
