Filed claim Dec 16, had been on work share at the time, had phone interview about cause Jan 4. No contest. Ex employer got message Jan 11, going to pay. Online system broken, history stops 7/26, phones hang up on me. No human interaction is allowed. 5+ weeks, no mail, nothing. I have to drive to Sac. (3.5 hrs each way)next week I guess.
A waste of taxes, if ever.

I pray I never have to rely upon the fine state of California to do anything other than collect my taxes. I am acting as fiduciary to my friend and co-worker who had a debilitating stroke on Halloween. It’s now Jan 10 and he still has received no support from EDD. His savings is running out and the future is looking pretty bleak. I moved here from the south and have always pondered why there seems to be such a large community of homeless here. I think I have my answer. Oh well, at least the scenery is nice…….when it’s not on fire, flooding, posted with “do not trespass or even look” signs.

Corrupt Government

September 30, 2016

in Pissed!

(First – Income Taxes were never supposed to exist, there is NO law, its complete Bullship)

I’m a decorated veteran with MBA / BS / AAS degrees. In 2010 I went over to work in Afghanistan until 2012 as a civilian and I didn’t have enough taxes taken out. I get home and I owe like 18K, it was right in the middle of the government furloughs, hiring freezes and sequester of 2012 so I went unemployed for 14 months. I had 2 choices, pay my taxes or eat. I wasn’t eligible for state benefits because I did a safe harbor state exemption, if you’re out of the state for more than 540 days eligibility exemption. So I decide to eat and stay alive versus paying taxes. I lose my security clearance for owing back taxes even after being proactive and getting on a payment plan, had great communication with the IRS even though they did an assets, liabilities worksheet on me and I had $125 left over each month so they took that. Now, no one ever has unexpected expenses, your car never needs parts, your washing machine, dryer never break, your dog never gets sick, needs a vet right? I rarely have any month when some unexpected cost pops up, what total bastards the IRS are taking my $125 cushion. Oh and when doing an IRS asset/liability worksheet, you’re not allowed to list credit card debt!

Jokes on them, losing my job because I owed taxes, I canceled my installment agreement. Here comes the really good part, I have paid into the California tax system for 11 years and all I get is 6 months coverage that only paid a fraction of bills anyway and THATS TAXED!! We now have taxes with taxes.

So I am a decorated Gulf War Veteran about to join the ranks of the homeless veterans. America is corrupt, heartless and the pursuit of happiness has been out of my grasp since 2012, trying to catch up, survive, just exist. We need a revolution, we need for income taxes to go away, its one giant ponzi scheme farce anyway, its illegal, there are no laws on the books enforcing tax collection.

Let me start by day fuck all edd employees wait till it happens to you. I pay my taxes and you still have the odasity to take money out of my pay check with out any problems flat out fucking pices of shit, but I get hurt and file for unemployment cuz I was fired for not showing and I had doctors notes to excuse me from work and still fired. So I applied and that said no because I was under doctor’s care okay so I applied for disability and they denied me because I had one they wrong apparently and you could work with a broken bone and recently operated fuck you edd you piece of shit I hope this happens to you and I hope you get the night as well you fucking piece of shit

I worked for a few months in a different state. However, all my taxes on my w-2 say I have been paying taxes to CA the state I live in. What state should I apply to? Any help would be appreciated.

Missed Appointments

August 6, 2016

Do not miss any appointments – I repeat, do not miss any appointments. I fucked up, because they schedule the appointments not only far in advance, sometimes the mail correspondence is there to throw you off as well. Please, if you start EDD “benefits” just stay on top of it.

I fell victim to their bullshit, but I’m hoping I get a job very soon and if I don’t, I am focusing on school only. The state thinks all we’re worth is money, but it is wrong. Once I get my degree and have some savings, I’m leaving my state and raising a family elsewhere. I pay taxes and work for low wages, and they were not there for me when I needed them most, so bye Felicia!

EDD sucks

I too filed for unemployment benefits for the first time. I was required to do 2 things after my phone interview: file something using the edd ui website, and register for caljobs.

I couldn’t do either one.

I couldn’t access the ui website because I couldn’t even register for it. I couldn’t register as a new user since I filed for disability for a 3 week period when I had surgery 2 years ago. I had to use the sdi login I created back then. Needless to say I couldn’t remember it. It’s apparently impossible to recover and calling the 800 number got me no where.

Similarly with caljobs, they sent me a notice saying that I must register and that they had started a “pre registration” for me. All I had to do is use my last name, first initial, and last 4 of the sun to login. No matter how many different ways I typed it in (the instructions are very clear and precise, it’s just that following them doesn’t work. I suspect due to my hyphenated last name) nothing worked.

So I decided to register myself manually from scratch, but that didn’t work either. Why? Because the blasted thing said I was already registered. ..

The edd is sinfully useless. Requiring people to jump through hoops and then not giving them the tools that allow them to do so is cruel.

I’ve been locked out of my sdi account and am waiting for a reply as to the calworks. This stuff has me seriously stressed out as to whether or not I will be punished for failure to register.

I want my taxes back!!!
