    The IRS wouldn't allow her to file a 2004 income tax return because she was dead. So while money had been withheld from her paychecks, she couldn't file to get a refund.

    Turns out that because of a typographical error her social security number had been switched with that of a dead person. Lausch says she has received a letter from the Social Security Administration, informing her of her revived status.

    My parents once received a refund check from the government for 1 cent (00 dollars and 1 cent). They framed it and put it in their living room. :D

    LOL my father was once told my sister didn't exist (she was by then 16) when he attempted to claim her on his taxes.

    They had to go to court to prove that she did and does.
