For anyone who knows me well, it will probably come as no surprise that I was quite relieved when I came up with a reason why this whole situation is (mostly) my fault. For those of you who don’t know me well and, yet, are still interested, I hope by the time you finish reading this “book”, you’ll have a general idea.
Well, I took a look at the online account stuff, and I can see that the US Treasury has deposited the check that I sent to pay my federal taxes. That confirms a few different relief-inducing things:
- I put the returns in the correct envelopes (I thought I did, but you know how you always obsess about these things).
- The federal return actually arrived (I already got notification about the Alabama return through Registered Mail tracking).
- The return I actually owed money on has been received.
