Yeah, I get slower and slower in filing. I used the IRS website again for the instructions and forms. Friend Jerry out of Shelby sent me the Turbo Tax software gratis, but nothing I had would open it or I didn’t know how (one of the two). I am pretty thick at times. (Don’t repeat that, my wife thinks I am smart).
Anyway although I do like this computer and the new technology, there are times I miss the paper feel. Remember when the IRS sent 18 billion forms to Post Offices; then sent you instructions and forms via mail? Shucks, the postage alone would have been millions.
They do not do that anymore. I am afraid to guess, but I would say that the IRS saved several Billion at least, by not printing and sending the forms. So did they give any back to us? Not that I noticed, did you get a check?
Anyway, I did not know how to save the form I was filling out on line, so when I had to go to the ‘cute’ instructions, I lost the form and refilled what I had lost. Fun. I said a few bad words, but I got-r-done. Let me say that I am happy that Florida does not have an income tax so we do not have to file a state form.
I was expecting another huge refund. Last year we started to buy a car with the $39.00 we got back. But no such luck! We are getting a total of $4 back this year. Hardly worth all the bad words. Next year I think I will click the box that lets them figure it out.
I was so thrilled about the $4, I woke Sherry to tell her. Anyway if your refund is late, it will because they had to use it to sent us our refund.
I hope you have jumped thru all the hoops and filed. I’d hate for you to be reading the Shipslog from the Slammer.
Thanks for listening,
PS: I no longer have a business so We do not have a CPA anymore to do the taxes. And I am too cheap to hire anyone else.
NOTE: I don’t think anyone in the USA would mind paying their fair share, if our Government could spend it reasonably.
No joke, this is a Cobra IRS REAREND!
