Tax Day: Brought to You By Satan

Remember how the other day I felt like this?



That changed quickly yesterday. After talking to my accountant, I felt like this:



She called to say I owed OVER TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS to the IRS.

And I was even paying taxes quarterly! It turns out the handy worksheet my previous accountant -- or should I say "accountant" -- used to calculate how much tax to pay only accounted for Social Security. No federal taxes, no New Jersey taxes, no New York taxes. Boy, did he screw me.

Thank God I had the money to cover the bill in my savings account. Of course, I was hoping to use that money for other stuff -- like IVF treatments, since it's looking increasingly like the only way Snookums is going to get a sister or brother is from a test tube.

I don't know why I didn't Google the "accountant" like I do everyone else. Because if I had, I would have found this website. Dead giveaway the guy's a charlatan...

I'm getting a big REFUND thanks to all those worthless investments I made.

Nice to see you back on the blog, Joe! And you and your REFUND can now go take a hike!
