Back taxes - any limit to how far back the government can come for you?
There were no details as to how much, nor what year. When she called the number even they could not provide full details, although they did say it was for 1996-1997. Surprisingly, they also said they weren't going to ask for interest.
Maybe I'm too cynical, but is this for real or some sort of elaborate scam? How could it take the government 10 years to track this down, offer an excuse that they had a hard time tracking this person down (even though she filed taxes every year and in fact lived at that address for a continuous 7 years after) and not provide full details because "that's in another department"?
