Tax Day: Grrrrr!

Happy April 15 to all. We held off filing the federal return until Sunday of last week, primarily because we owed additional tax. We filed electronically that Sunday, and the next day we received a revised 1099 form from a mutual fund we own shares in. The revision reduced our tax by $2, but required filing an amended return. Grumbling the whole time, we did it.

The change in the federal return triggered a change in the state return of $1 in our favor. Since it would cost more than a dollar to print the revised return and mail it, we decided to let the state keep that dollar. Mrs. Abe is slightly worried we may be arrested for this...

The mutual fund letter was matter-of-fact, "We regret any inconvenience this may have caused." Grrrr!
