The tax-man cometh

I have to leave work a tad bit early today to go pick up hubby so we can go have our taxes done. This is not something I am looking forward to.

I had extra money taken out of my paycheck every week this year so that should help, right? I also won an award and my institute is conscientious enough that they give you a substantial enough amount so that when Uncle Sam gets done taking his share, you can still take your family to Mickey-D’s. Uncle Sam did just what he’s known to do and took over 40% of the money. One would think that he’d also have a conscience and say to himself, “My, what have I done here? She was DESERVING of that money. Now I feel bad. I’ll give her some back now.” People look at me funny when I suggest that. What do you think?

    I understand completely. I am headed to my accountant next week. It is always so discouraging. Can’t I just keep a *little* bit more of it?

    ah well…. nice to have a job at least…!
