They cashed the check for $202 last March, but keep sending letters that don't respond to questions I ask, and provide no justification of the amount they're demanding. Specifically, the tax rate on the 2017 return was about 10%. The corrected tax they claim would use a rate of about 93% on the... Read more »

Let me just say this: If your wife still has an old student loan debt--from 29 years ago--the first thing she should do is thank the Good Lord for the government giving her the 29 years of low interest loans. The second thing she should do is stop trying to avoid paying the debt. Why? Because--if...Read more »
