For those of you that don’t know, Bird Country is Maryland, due to their major sports teams being birds, the Oriels and the Ravens. Duh.
Anyways, I got a certified letter(fancy stuff, that) telling me that I owe them income taxes. Like Hell!
For the record, if you are military stationed in a state that is NOT your home of record, you don’t pay income tax to the state you’re residing in. So if anyone gets a Notice of Intent to Offset, call them and let them know. You’ll need a tax return from the state that is listed as you home of record for what ever year they need. Let’s hope you keep records that long.
Me being the pack-rat I am, there wasn’t too much difficulty. I just hate having anyone tell me that I owe them money. It annoys me. A LOT. Especially when I know I don’t.
All’s well that ends with me hopefully getting the rest of my tax return that they owe me.
