In case anyone is wondering what else I hate the government for, this may strike a chord with you. My wife and I have yet to get our promised rebates of 600 a piece. I'm literally pissed it's...what, 7 months....after I was told I'd have it. Unfortunately we have yet to still see them. And I will not, ever, forgive our congress til it's taken care of. Promises are broken, and I guess I'm the one who needs to 'accept' that...sigh.
I knew someone who would have a terrible time with people on the phone trying to get problems straightened out. But she was terribly rude to them, because she had been wronged. Not sure it applies here but a carrot gets one a lot farther than the stick.
The first attempt was my wife, who is never rude on the phone. I've tried and either get a dead-end automated message or the person simply states "it hasn't been issued yet." That's ridiculous since the check was due back in June. I am a salesman/customer service rep. and usually keep my cool on the phone, but the IRS is (as I've been told) the worst case for phone calls.
Good idea. any ideas what exactly to write and where exactly to send? The problem I always think of with writing is the lack of accountability for the IRS to respond. On the phone I hold them 'captive'
