“Dear PoPville,

So we got a “Notice of Correction” on our DC Income Taxes that eliminated all of our legitimate exemptions (me, spouse, and kids); as a result, DC OTR is now saying we owe almost double than we were supposed to get back.

We called our accountant who said that DC OTR had an error — which apparently hit quite a few people — and OTR +++should+++ be issuing correction (to their initial (erroneous) “correction”) notices soon, but still it is troubling to have a tax bill hanging out there even if it is wrong.

Anyone else get an erroneous notice like this? It seems wild that they could sent a letter like that without any real explanation (you have to do the numbers yourself to see where the “correction” is), and only give you a phone number and an address, but no real instructions on how to correct.

Any other ideas on how to address? Calls to the number listed on the OTR site were not helpful.”
