Just recieved my state income tax check, now im wondering what to spend it on. Im thinking either an ounce of hops, or a new airlock. The check is for a whopping 2 dollars!

It probably cost more to process than $2. Of course, you'll have to make up the difference with your tax payment next year!

Isn't there some bar around that is running a two dollar Tuesday special?

You can buy me a beer. I'm headed over to Baileys tonight.

Wait for a sale and maybe you can get two ounces. At least your taxes got done. Every time I'm ready to send mine off, I get another document from somewhere or another.

That's fantastic. Everyone should get low checks like that.

You are SUPPOSED to break even. Anyone who gets a big check back is just getting their own money back WITHOUT interest.

We were +$300. That's about as close as I can cut it.

I always owe, but then again I am considered self-employed and pay quarterly guess-timates. It all works out and I am always sending in money. But hey, just look at all the benefits I receive.

I'ma a bitter prick. I'd burn a $2 check just to screw up the books.







Yeah yeah yeah, I know they probably would never notice the $2 but I can still snicker knowing they are wrong
