Taxes

I was so very pleased earlier this month when I got our taxes done and filed. I was so very punctual that two days after I filed, another fucking form arrived in the mail--a royalty statement from Amazon for book sales in the amount of $11.48. Since TurboTax recommends waiting until both state and federal refunds are wired, I only today filed the amended returns, which may not be submitted electronically. I printed actual paper and had to write an actual paper check for $13 to the IRS. That's strange math right there; one might even go as far as to call it 'fuzzy' math. Income increased $11.48, which led to our owing $13 more in taxes. Remind me next year not to be punctual.
