About That $90

I've recently written about my conflict with the Oregon Department of Revenue over the $90 I owed when I filed my amended 2005 return.

Quick recap: (1) They tell me I owe $90. (2) I say no, and mail them a copy of my check as proof of payment. (3) They write back saying they got the $90 and then refunded it to me. (4) I respond, demanding evidence of the refund and the reason they would do that in the first place.

It's been nearly three weeks since then and I haven't heard back yet. Yeah, the wheels of bureaucracy turn slowly. Not content to wait for them, I had my bank pull up the images of my deposits from last July. This took a little while because they had been archived months ago. What did I find?

… a check for $90 from the Oregon Department of Revenue. They were right — they actually did send it back to me. (Oh noes!) I'll have to wait until their letter for them to explain why they did it.

It looks like I'll be sending them $90. Again. Maybe they'll keep it this time?

The sad thing in this is that even though it's their mistake, I'll probably still have to pay interest. They're charging me 2¢/day, so I wish they'd hurry up and write me back. :)
