Where is it if she don't have it?

This past Jan. we received a letter saying my dh ex was gonna get our tax refund well all this time we assumed she has received it bc when my dh asked her she NEVER responded.

Today we find out she HAS NOT received a dime.

WTH? Is going on.

  • It takes awhile for her to get it. Around 3 to 6 months.

  • Unlike the citizens, who damn well better get their taxesin by April 15, Uncle Sam can take his sweet time forking over the refunds.

  • It takes them several months usually to get it around to the ex. Not sure exactly how it all works, but it's never immediate.

  • And everybody is shocked. Ever considered adjusting your withholding so you hold on to your money as long as possible? I've been told that doesn't work with all the credits, but it is worth looking into. I'm not in favor of giving the government an interest free loan.
