Today the mail brings a letter from the IRS that says my wife never filed a tax return. Call the accountant, call the IRS, IRS says they have no record, we have all the forms-- I ask my wife if she asked the accountant if we filed electronically or not- she didn't ask but swears we did- I swear we didn't.
Now my wife hits panic mode as I tell her even if we didn't send it in, we're fine because we're in for a 2300 dollar refund. Do you think that calms her down?
So, she goes on a wild goose chase, looking up old bank statements trying to find a deposit from the Fed-- none. I walk away.
Finally, finally, finally the accountant calls back for something and I force my wife to ask her about the electronic filing-- accountant says no, you needed to mail it in.
So, the state and federal returns go out tomorrow-- we're getting a little over $2500 between the two.
What a butt!
Nothing like having to sit through an episode of "female freakout" over nothing. Once their in panic mode, nothing you say helps- just walk away!
Words are like bullets, I let them pass through me.
