So. I made considerably more money this year than last—which is good, sure, that’s good.
But: this means that instead of getting a state tax refund, I’ll be paying. Which is not good.
Yeah, yeah, I choose to live in a high-tax locale, and I generally support redistribution blah blah, but I’m not going to let a little political hypocrisy get in the way of some personal complainin’.
Anyway, since I owe NY money, I’ll wait to file that return: it’s almost the same amount that I’m getting back from the feds, so right around the time that money comes in, it’ll be time to pay out. BASTARDS!!!
I do have one question, however: if I made so much more money, WHY AM I SO BROKE? Where did all that money go?
