As a US citizen I am required by US law to file income tax returns every year, regardless of where I call home. And, because I live in the UK, I am allowed to submit my returns later than the standard date as I automatically get an ‘overseas extension.’
Mid-September is about the time I would expect to be getting a refund from the government on my taxes. With all this talk of the US government giving $700 billion more to people who already have lost billions, I was eager to get my money before that bill gets through Congress.
So, you can imagine my glee when I saw an email from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) come waltzing into my inbox:
Then I read it again. Formular?! Is that like ‘strategery’. Hmmm … unless George W. was personally responsible for writing and editing this email, it’s gotta be a scam.
