Come on, admit it – you’ve “Googled” yourself to find out what information might be floating around on the internet about you. If you haven’t, you probably should; Molly Wotring, a part-time elementary school teacher from South Carolina recently Googled herself for fun – but what she found didn’t leave her laughing.
According the South Carolina tax department, Molly was listed as the fifth largest tax delinquent in the state, which claimed that she owed $225,253 for the tax years 2000-2004. The wrongful accusation of tax delinquency had Molly understandable upset.
Molly was living in Ohio during those years, and not making nearly enough money to owe that much in taxes, so she called the taxpayer assistance hotline to get it straightened out. But she ran into a cold reception from an unfriendly operator who didn’t seem interested in finding out the truth.
So Molly marched over to the local tax collection office with her Ohio state tax returns for the years in question, and demanded to see an auditor. After seeing her proof, he apologized and took her name off the delinquency list.
Sometimes the IRS or the state government can get it wrong. If you’re not getting the response you require, calling in an attorney can help make sure the tax auditor listens to your side of the story and sets the record straight.
