I got a call from my Tax Man and he told me he “thinks” that I owe about $1000.00. It’s better than this amount.
Now… let me tell you why this makes me nervous, a little history.
A few years ago, this same tax man did my taxes every year. But one year I decided to do my own.
I came up with an amount for a return, but I wasn’t sure, so I took it to him. He was able to get me back $600.00 more on my refund than I had calculated.
Cool right? So I paid him his fee, got my refund and went about my business.
During the middle of the next year, I got a bill from the IRS, guess how much? Yep, $600.00! So I called the tax guy and he reimbursed me the $30.00 that it cost me, (charges from the IRS), I paid the IRS the $600.00.
So you wonder why I went back to the same tax guy? So do I! I guess because I kind of know him and I was under the gun last week when I did my own and found out how much I owe.
He is charging me $160.00 for prepare fee.
Tomorrow I am calling my lawyer to see if I can eFile? How do I pay the money to the trustee from the refund from the state? – which I was very close when I did my own calculations BTW.
Am I nervous that he F…d messed up my taxes? Yeah. But I will try to keep some money in reserves in case I get a bill!
I just want this year and this mess behind me!
As a matter of fact, I want to fall asleep and wake up in five years!!!!
Will it ever end?
Who’s brilliant idea was this Chapter 13 anyway?
