Retired columnist Bob Dyer wants his 2020 tax refund from the IRS

Remember longtime and now-retired Beacon Journal columnist Bob Dyer? 

Dyer, who retired in December 2020, was the Beacon’s “columnist with attitude.” 

Dyer is enjoying retirement. He said he’s doing a lot of reading, playing a lot of golf and has some book possibilities on the horizon.

 “But I’m just enjoying doing nothing for the first time in 30 years,” he said.

But he definitely still has an attitude and a new beef — with the IRS. 

He and millions of other Americans are still waiting on refunds from the IRS in a backlog from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Dyer’s wait has been more than 16 months for what he has calculated to be $1,027 from the IRS and $182 from the state of Ohio.
