So since tax day in April, I've been waiting patiently for my tax refund. It is a significant amount of money (just last year the IRS started giving me my refunds again after keeping them for 15 years while paying principle child support), and I need it desperately to throw into the gaping black hole of my finances.
So I spoke to the IRS finally. It appears that someone in Texas also filed taxes under my name. They have my tax filing on hold as a possible 'Stolen Identity'. I am inclined to believe that this might also stem from when my debit card was compromised earlier this year ... when some fool tried to buy airline tickets on Saudi Airways.
So I am told to re-file pronto, along with an affidavit (downloaded from the internet) and ID as indeed proof of my very fucking existence.
