Just when you think it can't get any crazier in this State I call "home" , my 76 year old father gets this letter from the CA Franchise Tax Board. Apparently they want $9,800 for taxes they say he owes from 2007 and 2008, are they out of their minds!!!
Some quick background about my Dad, he started receiving Social Security at age 67, just under $600 a month, not enough to live on so he continued to work little part time jobs and now lives with us as his health has been poor the last few years. He worked hard all his life, is a Korean Vet and has never used public assistance other then medi-care which is a system he has paid into all his life.
WTH is going on?! He made $5,200 in 2007 and $4,700 in 2008, I know taxes were taken out of his checks, but don't think he filed taxes cause he was told he didn't make enough to worry about it. This letter is quite threatening and I am so angry!!!! What do I do to help him? Thanks for listening and for any feedback. I'm just sick over this and haven't even told him yet as he doesn't need any more stress in his life....

At his age...tell them to go to hell.
I know I would and am preparing to do so.
