On Wednesday we got a check for $802.11 from the US Treasury. Today we got the explanation from the IRS: I didn’t take the “Making Work Pay” tax credit on our 2009 tax return.
I have mixed feelings about taking this check. On the one hand, woo woo eight hundred bucks. On the other hand, we get enough tax credits already, in my opinion, and the government is beyond broke. I’m ashamed to say how low this credit pushes our rate of federal taxes. At least the amount of the check is funny.
Okay, I really need to stop doing our taxes now, and turn it over to a professional.
