After receiving a letter a couple weeks ago from the Maryland Comptroller that my taxes owed would be “going to collections” at the end of the month unless I paid them, I got a bit nervous. That’s considering I was expecting a $1,400 refund!
So as an update to this post, Stacie went to the SSA, got the letter of proof of who she is, and we faxed it over to the MD Comptroller around May 12th. It’s now June 3rd and I placed a call to Maryland today and found out some good news:
The return was processed and the refund should be sent any day now!
I signed up for direct deposit, but I’m not sure if they’ll honor it because of all the problems. They might just send a check, but as long as it gets here for the correct amount, I won’t complain.
Unfortunately, though, my father-in-law found some 1099-INT forms for interest we earned early last year. That means we’ll have to file amended federal and state tax returns yet again AND pay penalties and interest on our federal return (not sure about the MD return yet). Sheesh. It never ends, does it?
