  3. Elementary Our tax return was 14K (filed in feb) did not receive money for electronic fund for weeks. Received a letter asking our CPA to file front form again (IRS was checking for fraud)...(more) 7-27-2015 12:54pm (8 replies)
    and would have to wait another 6 to 8 weeks for return. Waited, no return - CPA calls, it "fell through the cracks" said the IRS. Put it back in the system, another 8 weeks for return - still waiting. Imagine if we owed the IRS 14K! I keep calling the number, and it states due to volume we can't take any phone calls- try back another day. Any advice? think this is crazy....

        thanks for the response, I thought I may be being too critical. It's constant with this poster, she's family so I would like to try and find a way to make her see that some people may find it offensive. Another of her posts after the AG party was "can't wait for our week long birthday celebration for susie in disneyworld". I understand posting pics of family vacations and of your kid's achievements but I don't understand why this girl feels the need to post the details, i.e. the cost, etc. She is very active in her church and i would think she would be more in tune with not hurting others feelings

      I understand posting achievements your children have made, but it just seems like posting such an extravagant reward is a little much. It makes me wonder if the poster even stops to consider her friends that are seeing her posts that maybe are not able to do such things for their children? The person I am referencing is always posting things of this nature.

                    for groceries. I guess I could have told her that I'd pay her back, but I didn't think that she would care given that we were doing a week less of camp. Clearly, I was wrong.

                    • An offer to pay for camp is just that. It sounds like you're manipulating to get something out of it for yourself. That is why she is questioning. 7-13-2015 11:17am
