Gotta help ’em pay for another nuke…
with my increasing memory loss, plus numerophobia, filling out the forms is bad enough. i can’t remember a year since my brain damage two (?) decades ago that the the IRS hasn’t sent back my returns with red marks all over them; last year’s mistakes were epic.
this year is even more fraught, as it turns out the IRS seems not to even send out the instruction booklets, which of course used to be full of things one needs to fill out the paperwork. I dutifully went to their website yesterday, printed most of the forms I need, save for all the worksheets, and I did find a way to read the tax tables, and likely will discover where the fook to send all of it when I (hopefully finish).
anyhoo, smoke has been comin’ outta my ears over it all, but at least they were kind enough to send us the envelope of vouchers so that we can pay our quarterly taxes. you might think that’s self-serving; I couldn’t possibly comment on that…
if I need some breaks, I may pop in, but in the meantime, please talk to one another. Some good news: I finally heard back from our friend the Commie (I’ve forgotten all his screen names), and he sent an hilarious link I hope he’ll share on the most recent Open Menu. Good to know he’s alive and (hopefully) well.
meanwhile, if any of you know what this Tweet from Wikileak signifies, I’d love to know. I tried to stick ‘Pierre Omidyar’ into the filter, but was told I needed to fill out all three boxes…or something.
