WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- IRS is auditing head of household/single parents at an alarming rate!! Totally picking on lower middle class. I have been audited twice in 2 years!! What in the heck is going on and what can be done? They are complete bullies!! Nothing has changed since 2007, however they want me to jump through hoops, understand their legal jargon and provide documentation they already have!!! I have been a single mom for 6 years and provided sole support for my daughter. I have always had a job and NEVER applied for government benefits.
SOUTH CAROLINA -- How can the IRS snatch my stimulus money from me but yet they let Geitner slide and a 100 other companies on the Wall Street scene. I know I owe the IRS 6000.00 but I am a struggling teacher and have two kids to feed. They just took the money and I asked them when did Congress meet to decide this action and their excuse was everyone that owes gets money taken. How can this happen and the companies like AIG that owe money get bailout funds. This is crooked and wrong.

Thought this might interest you all. I was surprised to see that they would be sending them out so soon.
Even before Congress passes an economic stimulus package, identity thieves are using promises of tax rebates to trick people into revealing financial and personal data, the Internal Revenue Service warned Wednesday. Under one scheme, the IRS said, people are receiving phone calls telling them they can only receive a rebate if they provide bank account information for a direct deposit. The tax agency stressed that it does not collect information by telephone and that no legislation has been enacted that would allow it to provide advance payments to taxpayers or that specifies the details of those payments.
* I can attest to this. Last year, I got a phone call from someone asking for this information. I asked how they got my phone number (as they called me on my cell phone.) They said they got it off my tax forms. When I pointed out that there was no phone number listed on my tax forms, they hung up.
This is the payment schedule for the 2008 Stimulus Payments. Interesting!!!
