FSA Fiasco Update

Remember this POST?

As it turns out, my employer was able to STOP the FSA Child Care deductions from my paycheck, so I am NOT going to lose any more money from deductions that I cannot be reimbursed.  YAY! 

That’s the good news! 

The bad news is I don’t know what is going to happen at the end of the year on my taxes.  I cannot wait for this year to be over and get past this mess.  I am sure it will work out… for the IRS. 

Moving on.

I still have until the end of the year to spend a couple hundred bucks in my FSA Medical.  I have been carrying around a prescription for eye glasses for months.  I have an old scratched pair I don’t even bother to use anymore and my eyes are getting worse, so I better use the FSA for my vision before I lose it.  Ah Hem…. That will not happen!

*I double checked to ensure glasses are covered. It would not be good to fork over cash I don’t have.  I can use the FSA debit card to pay and not worry!*  Then when it’s empty I’ll toss it like the rest of the plastic.

And…Lens Crafters has a coupon:

I can’t tell if this works with the prescription I bring in or if I have to go to their eye doctors.  You never know until you get there where the catch is.  But they have fairly reasonable prices and it’s close and convenient.

BTW, I will not be signing up for FSA deductions next year.  It was great while it lasted, but going into a BK, I don’t need to worry tax returns.  I need to try to break even at the end of the year so the trustee doesn’t get it. 

More on that closer to the end of the year.

Here’s to *seeing* my way clear of this fiasco!
