    Child Tax Credit - Opt out

    I just went to opt out of the child tax credit thing. So I can't use my old user id or email, says it is not in the system.

    https://sa.www4.irs.gov/ctc/

    So I need to create a new id.me account.

    They ask for an email addy and password to send you a 6 digit code.

    Enter the code and go to the next steps. They want a picture of your passport photo page or driver license. Reluctantly I took a pic of my license and uploaded it, now they want the back! Okay what the fvck ever, I did. Click next and it says it is looking to confirm my identity... From what?

    Next step they want a selfie from my phone or web cam.

    STOP!

    I haven't even entered my name, SS# DOB nothing! Surfed the web a bit and read if you file jointly your spouse needs to do the same shyt!

    I can go to irs.gov and get my refund status with SS# how I filed and refund amount. That's it.

    WTF is this BS positive ID to opt out of the child tax refund? It's a complete different system. No phone numbers to call, nothing. Something real funny going on with this.

    This was only step 2 of 5 or 6. They also sent an email of my IP, browser, operating system.

    What VPN works with XP still? I'm getting creeped out.
