"The IRS Just Sent Me $160,000. Can I Keep It?"



LINK

Anyone ever had this happen to them? Maybe not to the extent of $160,000+, but they paid you more than what you were supposed to get?

Some of the comments under the article stated that eventually they would catch the mistake and demand interest.

Oh, this didn't happen to me. Just curious if this is a somewhat common problem.

One of the comments under it stated that he received $20,000 and a couple of years later the IRS came looking for it and demanded interest. Thats fricked up.

Not long after I got out of school, I filed my return and was due a refund. I got back MORE than my return stated I should get back and received a letter from the IRS stating that they found an error on my return and that I understated my refund. I didn't spend the extra for about 3 years.

Our tax laws are voluntary. This means you volunteer to the government the information that determines your tax libility. So you are presumed to know how much tax you owed versus how much tax you paid, and you are presumed to know when the government sends you money in error.

If the government sends you money in error, then you had best never deposit the check. Contact the IRS and inform them you received a check in error. The reason for doing so is that the IRS will eventually deterine that the mistake was made. When they do they apply IRS accounting rules to the repayment of the outstnding amount, and it may screw up your taxes for several years in which the IRS will assess penalties and interest.
