Make money from the government!

Posted on: November 19, 2008

The IRS got confused about my taxes, so I had to write them a check for what they thought I owed them. Then after a couple months of thinking about it, they realized I didn’t actually owe them that money, and wrote me a check back for the same amount plus interest. For the 3 1/3 months they had my money, the interest they added comes out to be 6.3% annually.

So here’s a stupid get rich slow scheme: write random checks to the IRS, then wait for them to figure it out and give it back to you with interest. You can’t lose!
