Whew! The taxes are filed. Much later than I wanted. I thought I had them done more than a week ago. But there were a few little pieces of paper I needed to find. Somehow Friday snuck up on me. I sat down then to really finish.
And discovered I owed $48,000.
Did I just hear you say Holy Shit!? Or is that just my own voice, still echoing?
Well, obviously I'd screwed up somewhere. But it took me until today to figure out how and where. Turbo Tax online is very convenient in some ways, but not entirely transparent in others.
No, I do not owe $48,000. The government owes me.
I'll say it does.
