I recently got a letter from the state of MN IRS division about my 2008 taxes. 4 fucking years after they were due. I had lived in MN for about 3 months of that year but naturally these fuckers just assumed for some reason I had live in the state for the full year.
Seriously you red tape sucking bureaucrats you know I lived in the state but have no fucking idea how long I lived in the state?
So naturally they decided to try charging me for a full years worth of taxes. And 4 years of interests. And a half dozen fees, fines and extra costs that totaled seven fucking thousand dollars is charges.
Now I wish I lived in a world where in the span of 3 months I was making enough money that 7,000 dollars was what I pay in taxes. But I don't. The the level of in-fucking-competence on their side to wait 4 years before contacting, fucking up how long I actually lived there and THEN charging thousands in fees and interests is just mind blowing.
I can ignore the fact that the place I had worked for decided to wait until the end of the year to switch my taxes over and just pay the what should be expected amount, but since they are no longer in business it doesn't really matter.
So after wasting 3 days, hiring a friend who does this shit for a living, requesting all sorts of bullshit paperwork and generally wasting a fuckton of time with these money grubbing fucktards who feel entitled to some insane amount of money it turns out I only owed the bottom feeders $120.00 in taxes. Oh but AFTER all the fees and interests with the interest values changed to reflect the actual amount I owed these pocket picking cut purse street urchins got another $1800 from me. For one fucking hundred and twenty dollars owed.
So the moral of the story kids is fuck the government and IRS in every way you can. Because even when you do everything right and make one fuck up over the years they will bull the fucking fillings out of your teeth to get the money. So abuse them in every way you can and get your moneys worth out of them before they get it out of you.
