The tax man cometh, and taketh away

I accept that by complaining about this, I will reveal the fact that I am only now, the first week of April, doing my taxes. But I am so distressed by the news that I will be PAYING taxes instead of receiving a nice refund for the first year ever that I simply must share it with you.

$114.

The federal government couldn’t possibly need my $114 that badly, could they? I kid. They need all the taxes they can get, this I know. That doesn’t mean I’m not still severely depressed. Does this mean I will never get a refund again? Am I making too much money for America’s tastes? Is this the first step on the way to becoming a Republican? Goodness. So much to be concerned about right now.
