Fact: nobody likes to pay taxes, but it’s part of living in America, baby!

But still, I think we can all agree that the IRS goes after the wrong people over what they see as unpaid debts.

And a woman named Kat took to TikTok to put the federal agency on blast.

Kat said, “My dad just called me and said that I owe $480 for my tax return because apparently if I just had $10 more dollars taken out of my check every single week then I wouldn’t owe anything at all.”

She continued, “What? I owe money for working? I owe money for working because, yeah, and, also, dad that sounds like a scam. You are telling me that if only $10 more dollars every week came out that I wouldn’t owe the $480?

Kat added, “How was I supposed to know that? First of all how am I supposed to know that, second of all…how do I control that?”

The woman ended her video by saying, “And why is that a thing how do you tell your employer oh take $10 more dollars out of my paycheck every week so that I don’t owe money when my tax return is done? What? This is, this is strange.”

Amen, sister…

I think we’ve all felt this way at one time or another.

Probably because it’s true.
