Oh Boo Yourself

So part of buying a house these days involves allowing one of the arcane entities involved in the process to see your last complete tax return. I duly signed and submitted the form to allow such to happen, and received it back in the mail today. Note I said received it in the mail.

The IRS' complaint? The address provided on the form did not match our records. Everything else, including names and social security numbers matched, but the PO box number was missing. So they sent a request for a new request to an address they believed to be suspect.

Only government thinks like this. Especially when my phone number was on the form as well and they could have called me. But they don't have a procedure for that.
