I had a momentary thrill this evening. I retrieved my mail from the post office box and I discovered an envelope from the Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation. Oh my god – my 2002 tax refund, a year late! I breathlessly opend the envelope and discovered… a W-2 form from Rev & Tax stating the interest I’ve earned on the tax refund they have yet to disburse to me. You know, so I can put it on my 2003 tax return.
Ugh. I wish the government had money to pay out the tax refunds. It sucks that they feel the need to take my money, then refuse to give me back what is rightfully mine. And whenever some loose funds appear in the government coffers, they are promptly distributed to government retirees.
