OK. Fine. Here.

I owe $2 in federal taxes this year. Two. Dollars.

I know, I should quit my bitching and count my blessings. My sister had to pay that much multiplied by 1,250.

But couldn’t one of the fine folks at the IRS just skip a Starbucks run one day, and stick two bucks in the ginormous pile for me?

I wonder what the cut-off is for “never mind, don’t pay.” Like, if you owe $1, do you really have to send in a check? A check made out for “One and 00/100.” Really?

    Make sure you write a letter to the IRS and designate where you want that money spent…then ship it with your check. We do this every year.

  • jessica says:

    I think you have to send a check for 2 cents if that is what you owe. I got audited when I was 25… the accounted saved the day.

  • Meredith says:

    Wow…and I thought I got screwed over at tax time. They can’t roll that into next year? And you know it will take them 24 hours to cash that check and get their money. Rat bastards….god I hate them. If it makes you feel better, I am self employed and I have to pay $19K.

    Am I the only one who thought of some geeky looking accountant pounding on Catheroo’s door yelling “TWO DOLLARS! I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!”
