My boyfriend and I were going through the mail, and he opened a letter from the IRS that said I owed $22,987! I swear, I just about fainted. I'm self-employed, and t turns out that one of my clients left out a decimal point when my income was reported, so instead of $6579.30, they told Uncle Sam I was paid $67,930. It's an easy error to fix, but I'll tell you what, it shocked the socks off me.

Keep all documents on this. I am not sure if it is the same thing when you own a business but my husband's employer reported that he made $20,000 more than he did. They had to give us an amended W-2, we filed the corrected one and the next year we got a lovely letter saying that we owed money. We had to fax in all of our paperwork to prove that was not the correct wages earned.
