…And you thought your tax bill was high!


A man in Pennsylvania named Barry Tangert got two pieces of tax information in the mail last week:

First, there was a refund check from the federal government for $900.  The second one was a tax bill . . . saying that he owed the state $34 BILLION.  That’s billion with a B.  To be exact, he owed $34,576,826,561.47.

Barry says he had a feeling there MIGHT have been a “blunder” . . . especially since he makes less than $100,000 a year.

Earlier this year, Barry’s tax preparer noticed a mistake on his 2022 return, and filed an amendment.  He doesn’t know how the $34 billion error was made . . . if the tax preparer made a mistake, or if there was a glitch in the tax system.

In any event, he WAS able to get through to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, and get the situation resolved.¬† They said it was an isolated incident that involved “the wrong numbers being inputted.”¬†
