Uncle Sam
 
I did my taxes this weekend. It wasn't pretty due to a couple of stupid mistakes I made. The end result was that I owed a decent chunk to the feds and an even bigger chunk to the state.

After seeing the grand total, I decided my best course of action was to get a good, thick buzz on, so I poured myself a pint of SN's Bigfoot.

Then, in a cruel twist of fate, I spilled my barleywine all over my paperwork.

Uncle Sam is a f*cking b*stard. He's taking my money AND my beer.

Oh man, that sucks! I'm grateful for the PAYE system!

Well, remember that you now own a nice big deduction called "mortgage interest paid". should help you down the road.

Didn't you move from CA last year, too? That's a major PITA. My wife lived in VA for part of one year, and NC for the rest, and it was a real headache getting the state side of things worked out.

yeah, that two-state stuff was a pain for the filing. I had to divide everything up into a "CA pile" and a "NC pile". Not TOO big of a deal, but just an extra headache.

The main thing was f'ing up my estimated payments. I underpaid the feds, so not only did I owe them more, I also get penalized.

Worse that THAT booboo was that I totally forgot (for some idiotic reason) to send estimated payments to the state! BIG underpayment and BIG penalty.

SWMBO was not happy with me. :o

Now that's what I call alcohol abuse.

In Canada it's easy to figure out, just give them half and you're done.

don't file... it'll take years before they figure out you owe them money. :ban:

2 years ago my wife and I had to file taxes in 3 states, NY, SC, and VA. I think we had about 5 or 6 W-2's combined. That was a fun year.
