“We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.”

~Leona Helmsley


I had a rude awakening that I'm still in shock over.
Had my taxes done.
I owe money.

A lot of money.

And as I sit here and type this, I only get angrier and angrier.

And all because of the 'wonderful' gift I was given by HESC regarding my student loan.
I had, naively forgot it would be considered 'taxable income', but the preparer had said that NYS had decided to use a different kind of 'schedule' when doing this, which allowed for a higher tax rate?????
I don't know.
I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to this kind of stuff.
In addition to all that money I shelled out today, I also was charged an additional $100 by the preparer on the sole basis that she had to work with this specific kind of form. WTF???

***ATTENTION*** Federal Government and NYS....

I'm a Social Worker....not Psychiatrist! It evidently shows that basic fact in my paycheck!!
(Damn! That makes it the second time today where someone insinuated I was a 'shrink'!)

I could do nothing but stare at her as she showed me how much I owed.



Yup.

Oh man that sucks. I used to have to pay every year and ended up making quarterly payments and still ended up paying then too. The social security killed me. On top of that, you get a penalty if you owe too much to them. It's ridiculous. And 100 extra bucks to do one form??? That's nuts!

Well, that really sucks for you. I don't see the high extra dollars for that 'extra' work. Hey, they are paid to work as well, aren't they?

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
