More IRS woes

It appears the IRS has discovered that I did in fact file my taxes in 2006, just like I thought I had. They have, however, now moved on to a new and weirder problem.

They're now notifying me that they want to see the records of my expenses and income from all the rental property I own. Specifically, they want me to fill out a form showing my total combined income from all my rental properties, together with itemized expenses for maintenance, repairs, and advertising for those rental properties.

*blink* *blink*

I have never in my life owned rental property. This is just getting bizarre.

Your name is not uncommon. Its likely that they have you pegged for someone else.

That seems like a quick, simple form to fill out, then.

Give it some time. In a couple of days they will want to see all your paperwork on all those robots you've been building to defeat your arch nemesis.

Cause they just know your going to try and write that project off.

And why not? I've already "written off" his robot army! ;-)

. . . !

I would definitely inquire as to whether they have the right person -- while your name is somewhat uncommon, the two errors in a row suggest a possible mistaken identity. Bizarre!

you need to tell them
that you are not Inego Montoya
they did not kill your father
therefore they should go about their business

but leave you alone

Have them check your social security number. it really does sound like they've got the wrong person. :(

stupid IRS.

Me, I'd fill out the form (no rental properties, income 0, expenditure 0), and attach a letter asking them to check who you are.

With the correctly filled out paperwork in hand, tax officials are always calmer.

Goodness - maybe it would be good to make sure that someone hasn't assumed your identity?

Are you KIDDING I would LOVE to have Franklins life!

Ok maybe not forever but for a week? few days? 24 hours?

The important thing to consider is *which* 24 hours! Franklin's life seems to be fairly equal parts suck and awesome, with very little in the middle.

well I would hope it was more the "awesome trip to visit a friend" than "a metric fuckton of wet cat litter and toilet paper when I got home"

Wow. Maybe some itemization at some point was miscoded as a rental property ownership expense or something.

At least that will be an easy one to clear up.

You'll know they have the *right* person when they start asking for itemized receipts for the purchases of handcuffs, dildos, paddles, and the like.

And *this* is why I became an accountant - to fight those idiots at the tax department. I swear their combined IQ is two digits.

This is why...
You let your mother do your taxes.
