Cant believe my BAD luck!!
« on: January 30, 2008, 10:17:09 PM »
Oh boy,....
 I just did my taxes...Did the e-file thing as I have for years now.
This time I had to download and install adobe reader(it told me I had to)...Then it came time to PRINT my return for my records..
  It ALL printed RUSSIAN!!!...Can you believe this!!???
 Now I'll probably get audited!!..I dont even know what it says!!
 Ok,...)"calm down john"....
 Do you think my return also went to the IRS in Russian??
 My wife doesnt know what i did yet...She's gonna kill me!!!
Or, maybe, just maybe,...ya think I might get an e-mail from Turbo-tax before it gets to the IRS telling me they cant read it?
 Whatta ya think??
 This SUX,....But it's kinda funny at the same time, huh?
 I better bail before Janelle comes in!
your friend,
john

Probably will get deported....  Wait that's not the American way...  Illegals get benefits and no taxes, so you're good  :shock:

I guess you're safer from the IRS if they have to fly all the way around to world to come get you :D

I am sure the IRS will have no problem if you paid them in rubles.  :lol:

Boy are you in trouble! 
I read on the internet that when that happens it is actually Russian spies working for Vlad Putin hacking into the IRS from your PC, masking their attack by making it look like it was you.

Nice knowing you!  I hear they let some prisoners keep bees in the old jail house yard.

Ok,....For the record,,...
Im a Polock, not a Russian...But Vodka sound good enough!
  I was Africanized,....wait,.....I mean Americanized in the 60's :)If they deport me I want to go to New Zealand...As long as I can take my refund with me! If they make me stay here and go to jail I want the bottom bunk 'cuz its cooler than the top as heat rises( but "farts fall").
  And last, but not least, I want internet....So I can keep coming here for all the wonderful encouragement and advice you all give me!!
  Ok,....I better go run some more Razor wire now!
your friend,
john

you don't want to go to NZ.  they have high taxes.  no rebates for you!!

where did you get your operating system?  if, for instance, you buy a copy of XP in japan....the copy is coded with a country code.  some programs will read that code and default to that language. some google programs do this and it can suck.

most likely, you accidental changed something.  you should be able to log back on and check.  you can not re-submit, but you might be able to re-print.

anyway, let us know where you end up.  federal prison are more lenient.  maybe we can send some honey  :evil:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Excuse me, but the best Vodka is Polish. Belevedre and Chopin are polish Vodka's and not nearly as pretentious as the french goose stuff.  :mrgreen:

I would try restarting the computer and downloading the record for your files again. Honestly, the IRS is looking at the numbers, and they're the same, regardless of what language the text is in.

Ok, since there seems to be an interest here..Some putting me in jail,...and some pulling me out(sort of)..
 What the deal was is when I went to "print and file" I clicked "Print" and it told me I had to download Adobe reader 7..so I did...Then I got the notification that said, "Your adobe has been downloaded and installed successfully". So thats when i hit "print". I'm guessing that somewhere in there(I vaguely remember a window that said something about such and such and this and that and that my adobe might not work right....I didnt think that pertained to meI thought that was meant for some other dopes that dont know what they're doing) I forgot to do something or I hit something by accident. I figured I better tell you all this so you dont waste your time trying to help me..
  Kathy....Submit is not neccessarily what goes to the tax place as what I saw that got printed then?
  I (When drinking) bought Taaka...cheap!
 I thought Chopin was a musician..With a name like Chopin, it has to be good!
 You think maybe I should un-install the adobe and re-install it?(And watch out for that notification a little better?)
your friend,
john

Yes, remove your current installation. And do a fresh install of Adobe.

Maybe Russia is where they have farmed out the IRS like call centers
