It’s my birthday, and it’s been a pretty decent one at that.

It’s been just over a week since I sent the paperwork and was starting to get worried. I got in the habit of checking my bank account to see if/when the check was cashed. Well, I checked this morning at about 9:30 am, and I had quite the surprise. Not only had they cashed my check, but I also received my tax return refund. The government loves me today!

At about 3:30 pm I received the text message and email listing our receipt number and saying our case was received. The NOA1 is in the mail and should be here in 7-10 days.

So all in all, a good birthday.
