Ok this has nothing to do with dolls I just need to vent.
I have been self-employed for over 15 years. Ive done my own taxes using Taxact software for at least the last 6 years. Ive always filed electronic direct deposit. Never had a problem until this year.
My refund was supposed to be DD on Jan. 28th, didnt happen. I went online to check status, said it would be there by the 1st of Feb. It wasnt. This morning I check again, it says to call a certain number and extension and mention a reference code, and Oh yeah tell them its been more than 21 days.
SO I do call, wait 15 mins to speak to someone. He asks all the info and then says did you get a letter from us? Uh no, nothing. Hmmm he says well we are sending you a letter this Friday to let you know you might be elegible for a self employed tax credit. But you might not be elegible either he says. Ok I say how long is this gonna put my return off? At least 30 days he says. This is the part where I want to scream, my return has been with them for 3 weeks and they havent even sent the letter yet for me to fix something. Taxact didnt kick this back to me before it let me file it, somethings fishy. Taxact has alerts that you run on your return before it is filed. If I had messed something up it would have found it.
But you cant argue with the IRS and the bills that I was going to pay off will just have to wait. Hopefully whatever is wrong I can fix and maybe next year the government wont be passing things at the end of the year that screw up the IRS computers.
