Government complaints by Jason Williams
– Last month I complained that it took nealry eight weeks for the Post Office to get new postcard stamps after their change date. Now four months later, I go back and they are out!
– The IRS has been proposing a measure to sell some of our private tax information to vendors. I find this facinating because people can’t seem to get an IRS person on the phone to talk about their taxes, but on the other hand the agency wants to dole out the same information to others
– The last time I called the Department of revenue with a question was last year. I got a message instead of a live person. Nobody has since returned my call.
