IRS Frustration

For various reasons, I needed to bring up my IRS account. But, I forgot my password. Not to worry, you can ask for it.

So, I did. The automated system gave me a temporary password. Entered the temp password, and then the screen came up asking for the time-limited activation code. Not sure why I have to activate an already created account, but, okay, I'm a good sport. But, the catch is, you have to receive the activation code by mail.

I'm very patient. Let's go for it. Click on the "resend activation code" button. A screen comes up which informs me that, due to the pandemic, the IRS is not sending out mail at this time.

So, I am SOL* on getting in and viewing my account. The request for transcript will not work, because, of course, you have to be able to get into your account. SOL there.

But, they will let you make a payment to them online. No problem.

I keep up with events. I guess I'll buy some stamps in support of the Post Office.

1. That sucks, if you are like me, paying them is a priority to which if not done you cant sleep.

I remember my password because it refers to a certain someone and what he is but then you have to add numbers and often special characters so it gets complicated for sure.

I think I remember that when you first create an account you do have to wait for a letter in the mail for the code, or was the Informed Delivery USPS? Maybe both.

2. Maybe we shouldn't have cut their budget.

3. Oh, don't get me started...

I was supposed to receive a payment from the german ministry of finance in February.

- To begin with, they started off by assigning me the wrong pre-tax payment.
- Then they taxed this wrong amount TWICE.
- When I complained in writing that the payment for February was all wrong, they responded that the payment for January had been correct.
