I’ve been working on our amended tax returns and I have to say…I can’t barely even look at them anymore! Even though it could mean that I’d have to pay more in taxes, I think I’d be all for making income taxes simpler. Put amount from line 4 in line 11. Then add 10 and 11. Multiply the greater of line 4 or line 10 by 0.15 and put in line 12. Ugh.
In any case, I know now how much we owe except for any penalties and interest for our federal return. The damage right now is less than $3,000 for both the federal and the state. To pay our state I will pull from our savings account. The federal I am still figuring out what to do about going into a payment plan. I have the form to do it, I need to read it again when my mind isn’t so jumbled.
For tonight, though…I call it a night. It has been a very rough weekend after a very rough week.
