I recently tried to call the IRS about a bill I received. I was put on hold and after an hour of waiting I gave up and wrote a letter instead. About a month later, the IRS sent me a letter saying they would respond within a month or so. The response I finally received, about two months later, did not answer all of my questions.
Republicans went on a yuge “cost-cutting” spree several years ago which has cut agencies such as the IRS and Social Security to the bone.
Do you need to contact one of those agencies? Good luck.
But don’t worry…the rich and corporations still got $1.5 trillion worth of tax cuts, thanks to the GOP.
