I received that letter yesterday from the IRS. I first tried the secret website that they told me to go to and because I entered 1 incorrect question it totally blocked me.... so of course I'm going to call the number they gave me :-\
after setting on hold for 2 hours to speak to a representative I finally got ahold of this missus ratchet... not her real name just saying. I was grilled for about 30 minutes I had to have 3 previous tax return thank God for the computer hunh, I'm being asked questions that only I should know the whole point of the letter and I finally hear the words come out of her mouth. okay I'm going to release your return to be processed!
I feel comfortable that you are the person that file this return and you are the person in question of the account, keep in mind at this time I am elated until she says in case we have to get back to you what is your phone number I give her my cell phone number same number on the return and then in a sneaky voice she says let me put you on hold for a minute.... okay so then I'm crapping my pants not that I did anything wrong just that I am a widowed father of 2 and I really need my return. She bumps back in a couple times confirming the number with me and then tells me.... okay I'm going to release your return to be processed it'll be 4 to 6 weeks :'(
um I guess I just have to say yes thank you ma'am...
