    So I get an email from my sister, she tells me that I got a letter from the IRS (all my mail is forwarded there..)

    IRS says I was internally audited, they discovered I misfiled, refiled on my behalf, and found I overpaid by about $1000, so a fat check was sent along with the letter. :cool: :cool: :cool:

    I've got 2 things to say:

    GP 100
    Timberwolf .357Mag pump Rifle

    :neener: :evil:

    One more thing you should say:

    "I'm gonna get help with my taxes next year." ;)

    That's my money they sent you.

    I was expecting a refund of about $1900. They sent me $450 along with a form letter that said I made a mistake in calculating my capital gains tax. Just exactly what that mistake was, they evidently couldn't be bothered to say. Makes me wonder how they figured there was a mistake at all. :fire:

    I got the same thing.

    $900 Federal
    $200 State

    I bought a Mosin 91/30 and a Springfield XD9.

    All I can say is, if the IRS ever screws up and gives you extra money back, just take it and don't say a word.

    They did that to me once, and I called them up and told them what they had done wrong, and asked them where to send the refund from me.

    AFTER I had paid the money back, I ended up with threatening letters from the IRS telling me I owed them this money and had better pay RIGHT NOW or else ... :fire:

    Fortunately, I still had the name and number of the original agent that I had talked to, and eventually got it straightened out.

    The only time I ever got cross-ways of them, and all because I tried to do the right thing. :barf:

    I guess I'm just not a good gun nut. I got my refund and said "Awesome, a cool grand to stick in the savings account."

    Ruger GP100 6" Stainless with a full shroud..

    GP-100 Medium Frame Revolvers:
    Ruger GP-100 Series double action revolvers offer an array of sophisticated design features that make traditional revolvers obsolete.

    Strength, simplicity, and ease of maintenance are keys to their design. The cylinder is double-locked -- at the rear by a strong alignment pin, and at the front of the crane by a locking bar that engages a matching slot in the frame. Frame widths are increased in critical areas that support the barrel; both sidewalls are solid, integral sections of the frame, with no removable side-plates to compromise the frame’s integrity. Because these revolvers consist of a group of integrated subassemblies, takedown is quick and simple, requiring no special tools. The GP-100 grip frame houses the mainspring seat and trigger guard latch and post onto which standard or custom grips in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials can be fitted.

    GP-100 Series revolvers are available in blued or stainless steel, fixed or adjustable sights and full or short barrel shrouds in lengths from 3" to 6". All models have rubber grips with rosewood inserts. Caliber choices include 38 Special and 357 Magnum, which also accepts 38 Special cartridges.

    IMI Timberwolf .357Mag Pump Rifle:
    [​IMG]
    The Timberwolf was introduced in 1989 by Israel Military Industries for sale on the domestic arms market. It was sold in the United Sates by the companies importer, Action Arms. Designed as a conventional pump action rifle with a tubular magazine it saw modest sales for the period and became popular in it's own right. Available in 357 Magnum and 44 Magnum it offered the user a choice in stopping power based on the customers needs.

    Harbinger,
    My tax liability is/was $0.52 this year :evil: Didn't even bother to file...

    My income in a foreign location did not exceed the $80,000 allowed. :neener:

    Twoblink, if you're from Taiwan... is this the US IRS or a Taiwan version of it?

    I'm confused.:(

    Umm, bud, I think generally ya gotta file anyway just to avoid future unpleasant questions... And less seriously(but possibly also true) I'd hate to pay the $274,328.52 interest on that $0.52 which the Infernal Revenue Suckers may feel the right to charge in a few years. :)

    Decent movie = no Ben Afflick.

    Yeah, I have to deal with taxes on BOTH sides of the pacific.

    $0.52 is what I made on interest in the bank here.. and that's taxable.

    Under $5000, no need to file. If I e-filed, it'll cost me $19.95.. not worth it...

    DJJ,

    For $1,450, it would be worth having someone take a look at it. The IRS is usually pretty good with the mathematical errors, but sometimes they screw up.

    For a quick check, make sure the dates are correct and you don't have a short term cap gain showing up as a long term (with its corresponding preferrential rate).

    Please remember, your tax refund is not a gift from the government, it means they took too much of your money for a year, and paid you no interest.

    I'll probably be in the same boat next April. I get a $9500 signing bonus from the Army for agreeing to do R&D for them as a civilian (NBC protection design :cool: ) , but the state of Maryland takes 40% right off the bat. I'm supposed to get a big chunk of that back, but with MD, who knows. :uhoh:

    And yes, I plan to buy a gun or two with the $~5k the govt doesnt steal. :D

    They corrected mine too. I got less refund than I was asking for. According to them I forgot they issued child tax credit checks in advance. I do vaguely remember cashing one but at the time I filled out this years form it sure felt like last year's check. Guess that's why they named them "credit checks"?

    I actually got money back this year, but next year I will be paying in a ton of money It sucks and I am not looking forward to it.


    One time I had an IRS agent come into my work. He was a very serious man that had no sense of humor. I am glad he wasn't looking for me. Turns out was investigating a Bar next to us. It seems they tend to get allot of cash but don't bother reporting all of it.

    HankB,

    That is not the normal withholding. Most states, as well as the feds, have a significantly higher rate for bonuses. It sucks, but most of that will come back.

    I guess you've never heard of tax credits. Sometimes they are gifts...

    No sir, it's not possible. I mean c'mon, you can't actually expect us to believe that the very government that wishes to completely control your life, uses mind control and black helicopters and constantly lies and steals your money found a mistake that YOU made and corrected it as well as sent back some $$$ to you.

    I am surprised the rest of the tin-foil hat crowd hasn't piped up yet.


    Good choice on the rifle btw.....I'd skip the Ruger and grab a nice Smith for the revolver though.
