The title of this post should be sung to the music of the famous Box Tops song “The Letter”. Seriously.
Got a letter in the mail from the IRS stating that we owe an extra $1000 from our 2006 taxes. It’s entirely possible that I missed something, but I doubt it. I’m pretty meticulous when it comes to taxes.
That said, it was the first year we filed together, and it’s also the year we moved to Illinois. So there were a lot of bits of paper that year, and the discrepancy is apparently some income Liz had from the university.
As you can imagine, having to pay an extra $1K out of the blue isn’t exactly a welcome thought. Here’s to hoping the IRS made a mistake. Otherwise, there are some trips later this year that aren’t gonna happen.
