I've decided I need to get tax advice from Mitt Romney...I'm paying WAY more than he is and making a helluva lot less.
A few months ago I got an additional assessment for 2010 Federal Taxes that said I owed about $25,000.
It may seem shocking, but I wasn't too concerned since I knew I didn't really owe that...but my company did have to re-prepare my entire 2010 Federal tax return and I did have to pay a small additional amount of taxes.
Was I annoyed at having to pay more...no, not really. Was I annoyed at having to print off 91 pages of documentation and send it along with my check? You bet I was.
What an annoyance.
We really do have to go to a simple system with no loop holes. A straight percent of income, like they do for Pennsylvania state taxes. The complexity of filing federal taxes in this country is ridiculous.
Turns out I don't have quite enough of the Poem yarn to do a full round of blanket. So once I finish the third side, I think I'll just make it a rectangular blanket and extend the edges with some other sock yarn.
