Remember George Bush's stimulus check? I finally applied for it on September 26, 2008, after being very ambivalent about whether I should take dirty George Bush money or not. I went back and forth about this in my mind month after month. It was a moral issue for me. I can't stand George Bush. He ruined my country after I paid such a price to stand at her side. ( I was going to give the money away when I got it).
The deadline to apply was October 15th and I finally applied with two weeks to spare so enough time for U.S. Mail to get it there.
I never got the stimulus check so I called IRS today. I wanted to get it done before 2008 expires so they could not say I was too late now. On hold for 35 minutes before someone answered the phone. I went over the whole thing. The woman told me a bullshit story. I got mad and told her to go to hell. After I cooled down some I checked on the information she told me. Well..... she was lying.
I called back later. Another 35 minutes for them to answer the phone and I spoke with someone else. He was able to actually determine what happened to my stimulus check. IRS made an error. They placed some information that I submitted with my 1040A form into the wrong place when they moved information from my form into their computer. But they will not correct their error! I need to correct their error.
I now need to go through all my 2007 stuff and 2008 stuff and re-file the whole thing again in 2009. Can you believe this?
I suppose you can. Why not. You file taxes with IRS.
