I vow to post at least 2 -3 times per week.
I wasn't blogging as much because my life has really been uneventful. I need to make some events happen.
Soooo...I've been a little under the weather this week. I went to the grocery store yesterday and I bought some soup, Theraflu and orange juice. When I checked my balance later on in the day, I was in the negative the amount of money the groceries cost...which was funny because I had more than enough in my account.
I called Chase.
"Oh, Department of Taxation and Finance (IRS) seized the funds in your account because you owe $1027 in taxes.
Many things ran through my mind...oh my God..my account is frozen. My check is being direct deposited. I'll have no money....
"I won't know more until tomorrow. Call back, ma'am"
I hung up and was a little more than worried. Why the eff would they do this around Christmas time?
Last year, I was on Unemployment. The nice folks at UI did not take out federal taxes even though I opted to have taxes taken out. Apparently, they only take out state and not federal taxes. Oh...the idocy. So.....I ended up owing $900 in taxes. Wouldn't common sense say that if someone is on unemployment benefits, they can't afford to pay $900 in taxes immediately? No. No? Ok. Here's where I effed up at....I pushed it in the back of my mind.
We're in a recession...the federal government is not playing with its money. So, I will call them tomorrow and get a payment plan poppin.
In the meantime, my direct deposit should be available to me as my account is not frozen...
What's messing me up is that...my account is overdrawn, a payment to my gas company was rejected and my phone bill is coming out + i have gifts to buy...i will have little money to work with this week. Crayyyyy....
