So I get home the other day, open my mail and notice that I have a letter from the IRS, strange, I think that it is not after Jan 31 when the W2 usually arrives. The first thing my eyes notice is that they say I owe them $2,000 USD due to a "proposed" change to my reporting of income for Year 2000. For some reason, they think I made $15,040 more for Y2K, than I had reported. Strange, I go into my back tax records and locate that year and find that the information that they have under my original filing matches exactly. Where in the hell do they get the thought that I made $15,000 more than I had reported. Considering I had worked for the same company all year long I only had 1 W2 form to file, a bank statement of interest, and a disbersment of some 401K money I had cashed out from a previous job (and already ate the penalty on) The IRS form basically has 2 boxes, 1 to check for if you agree to the change and start making payments + interest Or 2 to sign a form under penalty of purgery that I protest the change they "propose" and provide supporting docoment copies, which I have, the W2 and 2 other forms. One thing that comes to my mind is the possibility of my old company I worked for maybe fudged their books and rereported it to the IRS? They filed bankruptcy and laid off thousands in June of 2001. I have heard in the past of the IRS getting agressive in random targets of citizens that they may think wont fight back, yet just give in and pay up. Am I possibly one of the victims of this or is this a simple .gov organization fuck up that should be rectified in short order with the documents I have to back up my side of it?
