The IRS was polite to her...How nice of them. That is a very large mistake. Proof positive that the government does not know how to handle money. Of course the 16 trillion dollar deficit also backs that up! FLAT TAX FOR ALL. Wake up congress, you're losing grip on OUR country! She deserves to have her refund direct deposit within 48 hours....

Was your husband and his brother born at the same time, such as twins? That's the only instance in which I can figure them having SSN's that close, is if they were issued for that reason.

If she was smart she would put the money in her savings account or bought C.D,s. The government would eventully catch the mistake but she would have been allowed to keep the interest earned. FACT not guessing.

Sounds fair - they keep the interest earned on our money

Back in the 80's, my Dad filed for Social Security he received a $55,000 check then another one a few days later. He called them and they told him to "hold it" until he received a letter asking him to return it. They did owe him 4 years back social security but we were all surprised they didnt ask him to return it . My Dad wouldnt cash it and kept calling until they told him to return one of the checks. My Dad could have cashed them both and they would have never known. He said he had to live with himself and could never take something that wasnt his. He's been gone a long time now and I still miss him!

Don't worry about taxes anymore. When everyone in the USA is implanted with the RFID chip on March 23, 2013, all of America's money problems will be over. The chip will have all your info on it including your bank account. The USA is bankrupt and with inflation set to go sky high, the government will do away with money.It will issue jobs and a standard say $200.00 a week to exist on. What money you have will be confiscated. Everyone will be equal except the leaders of the world who run the one world government and one world religion. They will have the nicest homes which will have been confiscated as well. Guess who will be the servants employed to maintain them for the leaders. Something to think about. Have a nice day.

See morals, unlike that idiot kid that spent the 70K Wells Fargo deposited into his bank account. This woman should be praised for her morals

Um ... I think she was ... isn't that the point of the story, or did I miss something?

TWENTY SIX BILLION??? hey, here's an idea.. a FLAT tax ...everyone who works and earns, pays a %, and everyone pays the SAME percentage........... no over pay or under pay, no deductions, no write offs, no end of year payments or refunds........it cannot get any EASIER and more fair than that ....and oh yeah, then we could dissolve the IRS.....we would NOT NEED IT. flat tax........NOT national sales tax, dont fall for that BULLfooey, i'm down for 18, 19, 20% thats less than i pay now (on45k) and way more than the mega rich -oops wait they are not called wealthy or rich anymore, we have to call them job creators- way more than they pay now........i think a flat tax of 18% would save this country
07:28 AM on 06/02/2012
Amen brother. Flat tax is too smart and easy for the politicians.
10:10 AM on 06/02/2012
Then they'd probably send a check for $434,712 to everybody. Let's see how many give it back!
08:02 AM on 06/02/2012
Guess what you are the job creator, not the rich. They do not spend any large amount of income. They save it.

It would seem something the IRS could have done FOR HER, was to expedite her refund....as a courtesy and a thank you for returning the big check. But, they don't care. Only if you TAKE from them illegally. And even then, it takes awhile before they get it.

even if you tell them about a mistake they take it upon themselves to flag your account and hold checks or audit you up the wazoo and say you own them more than you got in the refund you deserved...been there done that a tax lawyer reduced it so far the irs owed US money!!

AH---a woman with ethics. Had she of chosen to KEEP the money, it wouldn't have been long before the authorities would have come calling upon her. It's too bad she couldn't have just kept it legally.

I know Ginny, she is very honest, and a very good waitress. This does not surprise me at all. God bless her, she still wants to work at a Great Restaurant like Johnny's.

I would have kept the check but not spent any of the money. Waited to see if the IRS caught their mistake, hopefully they wouldn't.

You would only fool yourself thinking they wouldn't. THEN you could of had the dubious honor of fighting them legally when they try to "punish" you for not sending it back sooner.
That's how THEY roll...
