Brickbat: The Living Dead

|

For seven years, Samantha Dreissig has been battling the IRS, trying to get the agency to officially recognize that she is not dead. The 25-year-old New Jersey woman said her problems began when her mother passed away. Somehow their records were mixed up even though they had different first and last names and birthdays.  She said she has had just one meeting with an IRS agency who promised to correct the problem. She says since that time the agency has ghosted her, and it's causing problems with her father's tax returns when he lists her as a dependent.

  1. The 25-year-old New Jersey woman…

    …it’s causing problems with her father’s tax returns when he lists her as a dependent.

    Should probably be past tense. Also, I hope she’s still been filing returns because once she’s no longer dead to the IRS they will come after her.

    1. I believe if she is a college student living at home with no or low income, (or handicapped such that she needs a care-giver) she can identify as a 24-year old and be claimed as a dependent. But what the hell this has to do with Biden voters I have no idea.

      2. Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65000 to $70000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

    2. For seven years

      25 – 7 = 18.

  2. First, move out of New Jersey.
    Second, contact your new representative and Senators and have their staffs take care of the issue.

  3. Well, although she’s legally dead, she can still vote…Democratic.

    1. And, lemme guess, you want to violate her voting rights by insisting that she prove she’s alive don’t you?

      1. The dead have voting rights in New Jersey.

  4. For seven years, Samantha Dreissig has been battling the IRS, trying to get the agency to officially recognize that she is not dead.

    I’m surprised the IRS hasn’t sent Treasury agents out to correct this error.
