Dear Very Large Government Agency,
I received your letter in the mail today. And no, I did not collect $3600 in royalties and therefore do not owe you back taxes. I have not made $3600 in royalties over the course of my entire life.
You referenced my employer's 109X as proof. Thankfully I have my own copy. It clearly states that I collected $36.00 in royalties. It seems that your computer...or your data entry person...or something (!)...misplaced a couple decimal places on the way to the bank.
I appreciate the error as I now have a great story to share with kids who fail to understand why decimals are such a big deal.
Rich in stories but not in royalties,
