the IRS rant
If your a tax payer, you probably have had problems with tax season at some point in your life. THIS point in my life i'm ready to send very strongly worded emails to the devils in the IRS office. (i won't say kill for fear they might mistake that for an actual threat and lock me up in Gitmo)
My frustration stems from the fact that it is tax season in the USA and as a citizen i'm required to file. As an ex-pat, it means i've got to file special forms. Can i find these special forms? no. the IRS website works at being the most unhelpful help page on the web. (although i just found out that they have yet to win the award for most unhelpful...they are still trying) While it lists overseas contacts for help in filing your taxes, they fail to give an email address ONLY PHONE NUMBERS! that wouldn't be so bad IF THEY LISTED IN THIS COUNTRY!
So not only can i not get help from the unhelpful bastards. i can not find the damn forms for filing either. I'm about ready to tell those sons of bitches to burn in hell and they can eat my tax return.
but that is just my first reaction...i'll probably cool down later and feel much warmer towards them when the fire dies out of my eyes and i rip the head off my IRS dolls.
