My Call to the IRS

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So i like a dummy misplaced my EIN number which I need to sign up for some things...

Anywho..so i called today to get it from the IRS...

Get transfered three times, since my choice was not in the "pick this number" list..

so the guy gets on the phone..

I tell him I Misplaced my EIN number, and needed to get it again..

without skipping a beat he says, "Ok so do you have that number handy?"

But it does sound so typical of conversations with the IRS, or even some other Govt. angencies.

Oh my God, sometimes I am amazed that these guys can get themselves out of bed safely!!!!! Priceless!!!!

Kinda reminds me of (rather traumatic at the time, but amusing in hindsight) phoning my Dad in laws car insurance company to let them know he had died and that the policy should be cancelled. I have used the words 'Mr D has passed away'................. and they said 'I am sorry - we can only discuss the policy with Mr D........................'......okay, so what part of 'passed away' are you not getting.......should we employ a medium?!?!?!

I hope they managed to sort you out in the end!!

Thats the best

Its like when you lose your ID and then you need ID to get ID...but if you had ID you wouldn't NEED ID!!

Mmmm-hmmm. Had a similar experience cancelling my Dad's phone when he passed away. "So when would you like that to take effect?" "Ummm...immediately...he's dead... he's not going to be using it." "Ummm...Oh...yeah...sorry...."

They really just don't think sometimes.

Classic IRS!! Last year when I paid taxes, one payment ended up being late... Why? I sent my payment, check made payable to "US Treasury" as requested, stub included, addressed to IRS, mailed to IRS... Envelope stamped (something along the lines of...) "Mistakenly Opened by IRS" and sent back to me!!
