I was so proud of myself for having gotten the taxes done over the weekend, but I fear my pride came in too soon. In today's mail was one more tax document that I needed. It doesn't change much. We'll be getting a whopping $2 more than we expected to get for a refund, but I was not looking forward to having to file an amended return.
I was on the phone with the IRS trying to figure out what I might need to do, when the gentleman asked me, if the IRS had already accepted our return. Well, the last I checked it had, but I decided to check again. They'd rejected it!! I'd accidentally transposed numbers on a Social Security number that I've known for years and don't even have to think about when I say it aloud. Very odd, since I'd double checked the return, but it worked to my advantage anyway.
I was able to correct that part of the return, put in the last little bit of tax information that I got in the mail today, and now I don't have to do an amended return. I'll take what I can get! :)
Now..off to do more laundry and see what I can find to donate.
Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.
