Nothing Is Certain...

...but Death and Taxes.  Who was that?  Mark Twain? Well, luckily, death isn't in the picture this week (KNOCKS ON LARGE PIECE OF WOOD!). Taxes, however, are. 

Boooooo.


See that up there?  THAT is what happens when the following events collide:
  1. You miss 4 months of work and your company fails to take out enough money from your disability payments.
  2. Your husband is self-employed and, because of #1, cannot put aside money for taxes.
  3. You don't realize that on top of the federal taxes, there is a Self-Employment Tax that is just as much as the other taxes. 
Suffice it to say we will be setting up a payment plan.  And one for next year.  And trying to find a way to consolidate all the medical bills. 

And pray for a miracle so we can use our frosties next year...

  1. Oh, hun! Sorry the government got you this year. I hate that. At least next year you will be able to claim Peanut and, hopefully, that will help some!

  2. oh my gosh, were you at least able to write off any of your medical expenses??

    PS: If you are not in a community property state, you can try filing separately and put the medical expenses on your side, to see if you end up benefiting more that way.

  7. Oh my gosh I KNOW! I never understood why the IRS at the end of the year says "Oh, we didn't take enough money out of your check each week so you owe us more." WTF?!

    I'll keep you in my thoughts that you get that miracle!
