Ugh, Taxes

July 16th, 2020 at 03:21 am

I'm not one to complain about paying my taxes. I support the necessary work of the government, but I knew, given my DH's better hourly rate this year we could be hit hard. And we were. My adjunct job has horrible bookkeeping and their withholding is always screwed up, so that made it worse. But heck, we had enough in the checking account to pay it, so onward.

Spending today was limited to selling my DD's AP prep books on ebay. One sold and we pocketed $5.80 after shipping. And her AP results came today--she's a superstar. Three 5s. Very proud mom here.

Now must do some minor belt tightening to make up for the tax bill. My adjunct university will probably not be in my plans this years. I'm too busy at regular work, so that withholding issue will be gone.

I'd love to turn off the A/C but it's rained buckets tonight and feels like the jungles of Brazil out there. Ugh.

    Sorry about the the tax bill. As a payroll person I can only withhold what the W4 tells me. The struggle is when you have multiple jobs each job withholds as if it was the only income. I think with some of the recent tax changes it has exacerbated the issue.

    That's a bummer. It's done though and it sounds like next year isn't a risk.
