I ordered a scooter on eBay from China for $25.99. I also ordered a charger which was $5.82 and a ring which was around $5 (they were all separate orders). I did my research and I found that it is most likely that I will not have to pay customs duty. However, in case I am wrong, I would like to... Read more »
The online site says it is "still" processing. From what I have read when it says this "STILL" that means we need our Identity verified and should have gotten a 5071c letter. We have not received one. It's been close to 60 days since we e-filed with direct deposit.... Read more »

Or are your refunds used /taken by the lenders to offset the cancelled student loans? Cancellation of debt income is often ignored or not...Read more »

You would need to read what they gave you to be sure....Read more »
