My Mind Works In Mysterious...No, Scratch That...IDIOTIC Ways

You know what sucks?

Rolling into a new tax year having not paid your dues from the previous year yet...when you owe a thousand dollars.

You know what sucks more?

When your husband gets a love letter from the government saying that they've re-assessed his income tax for last year and he owes 800 bucks on top of the grand you owe.

You know what's weird?

Realizing that you just don't care...and that you'll eventually get around to paying it...at a rate of about 17 dollars a month...over the next 126 years...and that you're not fazed about it at all.

Oh I'm behind too to the tune of more than $10,000. I end up paying a fine of a few hundred plus the money owed every year.

We actually thought they would "forget" that we ever lived in our last house (the one we built and only ever paid tax on the land before the building was done and assessed) and that the new homeowners would just pay property tax without wondering why it was so high. Our dream lasted about a year and a half and we got a nice Christmas pressie in the form of a call from the lawyer. Damn.

That sucks. Shame you can't turn it into them owing you, like happened with us!

Still, it is only money - glad you don't care!
