We interupt our regularly scheduled blogging

to throw a fit. Have I mentioned recently how much I hate the IRS!! Or the State of California!!!! UGH!!!!
I have literally spent the last 3 hours on the phone with first, the State of California, and then the IRS. I've been doing some financial stuff and realized that there were ancient tax liens on the report. WHAT?!?!?!? I had not seen them before. Hmmmm, very strange!!! After almost an hour on the phone with the State of California I finally got the info that these were expired liens and could be removed from my credit report. YEAH!!! Joy, joy everywhere. Only to discover that once a credit report picks up a tax lien it very rarely lets it go. I have to get a release from California (which they are sending). I then have to send this release to the credit reporting agencies and hope they will remove them, there's nothing I can do to force them to remove it. Although, having that release will make it better with mortgage companies since I have proof no lien exists.

I then looked at the IRS lien and realized it was old too. I have now spent the last hour and 45 minutes on the phone with various IRS people trying to get this lien released. Keep your fingers crossed. So, I'm all happy, happy about getting these things released but really ticked off that I've wasted 3 hours of my life on them.

Have I mentioned how much I Hate the government????
