Tax collection bug?

I was inexplicably charged hundreds of thousands of dollars without receiving any text notification from the IRS, which is a bug? Or is it a normal tax payment or punishment mechanism? I tried to go to the IRS to pay taxes, but when I went to the front desk to try to talk to the staff, there was no response.

It sounds like you’re talking about a Negative Interest Charge. You can look at the Econoview to confirm that’s what you were charged - it should be on Monday morning just after midnight.

Basically it’s a “wealth fee” that happens once per week for hoarding money in the bank instead of investing/spending it.
