GeneralA Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Poor House PinmemberRoger Wright27-Jan-13 17:45 
Whilst doing my taxes online (TurboTax) I discovered that the Arizona Department of Revenue has a link to find lost money, so I clicked it. After entering really minimal personal information, it returned a result - the State is holding property of mine! The site won't tell where it came from, nor the value, only that there is unclaimed property held in my name. Very mysterious...
 
So I downloaded the claim form, made copies of relevant identification documents and utility bills to prove my address, and tomorrow I'll have my coworker, Page, notarize my signature before sending it off to see what I've won. I regard it as a game, you see, because I suspect that what I'll find is the the money that the state of Arizona has been stealing from my Federal tax refunds for years, all the while claiming that they haven't done so. I have the IRS notices to prove it, but ADOR pretends that they don't know what I'm talking about when I send them copies and ask for my money back. Somewhere back in history, AZ decided that I underpaid, and issued an order to seize my federal refunds, and this went on for years before it mysteriously stopped happening a couple of years ago. Coincidentally, it stopped the first year after I challenged AZ in writing, though they have never acknowledged the theft. The amount isn't large - a few hundred$ at most - but the principle is huge. If this turns out to be what I suspect it will be, I may just spend the time to, again, reconstruct the entire history of the events and write an article for publication in the largest newspaper in AZ, just to let others know what a corrupt and incompetent institution the AZ DoR really is. I think of it as a duty to my fellow citizens...
 
Of course, it might just turn out to be my stamp collection, which was erroneously sold at auction by American Mini Storage when they switched from paper records to computerized bookkeeping, and applied my payments to someone else's storage unit because of an address screwup, then sold my unit for non-payment. If that's the case, I'm hoping my entire gun collection, all of my college textbooks, my family photographs, and all of my power tools will also be included, but I'm not holding my breath on that hope. Better to expect a few mislaid dollars and be pleasantly surprised, than to hope for the return of a stolen life and be disappointed...
Will Rogers never met me.
