Day 18

A few pieces of money business:

Number one:
Dear People's Bank,
Please do not send me a Happy Holidays email. Having to delete generic (ineffective) marketing materials such as this puts me in a bah-humbug mood. Love, Nicole Micco

Happy Holidays, IRS!
Number two:
It infuriates me that the estimated tax filing forms my accountant printed for me list me as the "spouse or CU partner" and Jon as the "taxpayer." I am the one who is wrapping up freelance stories at 2 a.m. and then writing back these checks for thousands of dollars. Just sayin'.

PS: I am SO early on these 4th quarter payments! Because I thought I thought they were due 12/15. Silly me.

Oh yes.... I am grateful to have a bank account with enough money in it to write these checks, which are necessary because I'm earning a living doing (mostly) fulfilling and interesting work--and that the "taxpayer" to whom I'm married seems to consider me more his equal than the government does.

  1. Ha! That annoys me too, as my husband is Taxpayer and I am spouse. I have been supporting his fledgling business with my mammoth tax payment every year. He is Spouse! ;-)
