Procrastination is my middle name. Well, actually it’s Harrison but that’s Latin or Greek for Tomorrow. or Something like that. Anyway, the point is I stayed up late and finished my taxes last night. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, eh?
I probably would have filed an extension first but dammit that rebate will be needed now. I only owe the State of Georgia a little over $200. Heck, that’s a little less than I paid them last year. I had to pay them $281 last year. I also made $32,000 more this year. Fucking weird. Too bad that’s only about 10% of what I owe the federal government. I feel like someone just stuck a big dildo up my ass with the words Internal Revenue Service written on the side of it. Yeah, that long. $2232. After my $1800 rebate I end up only owing a little over $400, which is right around where I prefer to keep it anyway. Christ, $2200 used to be about 11 weeks pay back when I started with my company. 11 fucking weeks! Hey, I think I just heard a truck drive up there. Didja hear that?
Tax Rebate – Money you earned that the government took forcefully that you should feel good about getting back from them in a case of largess.
I think I want to throw up now. Too bad they won’t let me apply the rebate toward my tax payments. That would be cool. But, no. They want me to spend it and help the economy. I’ll spend it alright. On the bills that I won’t be able to pay when I write them a $2200 check later this afternoon. Bwahaha.
Actually the check may be a few days later. I need to wait until the last day of the month before I send it in. Wonder if they will take a post-dated check…
So things aren’t going to be any less stressful around the Miles casa the rest of the month. If I can quit losing so much damned money out of one of my stores perhaps I can recoup some of it before summer vacation gets here.
You know what really sucks about this whole thing? I took an 85% increase in pay, maybe close to 80, but now that I have sent in a new W-4 to take more out of my pay in conjunction with the fact that I have doubled my retirement deductions I will be bringing home the same or less than I was as a store manager. That’s fucked up.
Tax Day! Time for your once a year reaming at the hands of an overgrown government bureaucracy. And do you think all of the rhetoric from Shrillary and Obama is for real? Fuck no, they don’t care. They say they care but just like George Bush, Ted Kennedy and all the rest of the assholes on both sides of the aisle, they think that it’s a drop in the bucket for the sacrifices they make to ‘serve’ the American public. Now I really want to puke. Fucking assholes.
