Re: ???? About IRS debt!

I had an IRS debt from 2008 that I assumed would be taken from my SSDI backpay. However, they didn't touch it. I received my entire backbay, and went to the IRS to pay them myself.

Re: Follow up on your doctors notes - my 2 cents

For me, it was 6 weeks to receive my decision. But I think it can take a few months depending on your judge.

Glad you are calm today, and I wish you good luck at your hearing :)
