Default 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.

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.

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.

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.
