Virginia Hopkins is a great waitress and she’s used to getting great tips. But the one she got from her Uncle Sam on Tuesday nearly knocked her to the floor.
Virginia is owed a tax refund of $754, for which she has been waiting eagerly. But the check she opened was for more. A lot more: $434,712.
“I think I would have to work most of my life to earn that much money,” she says. “Even with undeclared tips,” she adds with a laugh.
