SUPRISE, you owe us 536.00 plus 250.00 for a tax mistake on your partners 2015 taxes...
Audit by the Wisconsin dept. of revenue.
This has been ongoing for over a month now. I'm at my wits end dealing with computerized phone menus that lead nowhere, calls with actual humans that lead nowhere, and this morning the IRS actually hung up on me....
All because somebody put a 1 instead of a 3 in a box on a 1099-r form back in 2015...
My wife is totally and permanently disabled. She used to work full time for a major grocer corp. She has been on ssdi since.
We bought our home in 2015, to do so she cashed out her 401k for part of the downpayment.
When mass mutual (401k manager) wrote the 1099r for the IRS and treasury department, they screwed up by putting a 1 instead of 3 in the distribution code box.
That means early withdrawal taxes and all that jazz that should not of happened as she is exempt due to being totally and permanently disabled.
Now the fun part.
No-one will admit they #ed up.
No-one wants to help fix this # up.
They simply point at each other and say "there's nothing we can do, you have to talk to them".
Well I've talked to every party involved and guess what?
Zippo, nothing, nada...
Just eat the 800 dollar bill so we don't have to admit we #ed up is basically what I'm being told.
I'm so pissed off right now it's unbelievable.
First off, over 1500 dollars in federal taxes were taken out of the payout which should never have been taken out, due to this error.
Now they want me to turn around and pay another 800 to Wisconsin because the fed got paid when they shouldn't have.
Their reasoning is that since it wasn't reported as taxable income in 2015 taxes, that we need to pay up, plus penalties. I appealed it online, I spoke to the auditor who refuses at all cost to admit that it never was taxable income.
Round and round and round we go....
