Stef filed her income taxes very early – around the beginning of February. On the IRS’s published schedule, she should be happily spending her refund by now.
It hasn’t arrived.
I know, direct deposit would be better. We’re very traditional in this regard.
With Stef at school and inundated with work (or so she says), Helaine has taken up her cause. She phoned the IRS last week and was told “Wait until March11.” OK, no problem. She waited.
Today, Helaine called back and got an automated voice prompt. “Please wait until March 11 and call back,” it said. With that, the voice added, “Thank you,” and hung up.
Uhhhh…. it is March 11.
Did you know, you can’t talk back to a voice prompt?
