Take the money and run, Siegfried!
Via Fox News:
There is a 94-year-old World War II vet in Ohio who just wants to pay his taxes but can’t because the IRS says he’s dead.
Siegfried Meinstein has been unable to convince the IRS he is alive, living in an assisted living facility near Columbus, Ohio. The IRS has told the nonagenarian it can’t process his tax return because their records indicate he is deceased.
“It isn’t really a problem in my daily life,” Meinstein told the Columbus Dispatch Friday. “Everybody accepts my money.”
The issue with IRS has also prompted some good natured ribbing from his son.
“If they keep insisting, what is it you say?” Ron Meinstein told his father who broke his hip in a swimming pool accident but is otherwise in good health. “Eventually, they’ll be right.”
