Payroll Can Bite Me

I am so angry right now I could spit.

As is my yearly custom, I compiled all my statements, added up my donations, and prepared a tax packet for the folks at H&R Block well ahead of the April deadline. And today, I paid them a visit to crunch the numbers.

My company still has me listed as married.

A year and a half ago, I filed all the required paperwork to notify them of my change in status. Apparently, it went into a black hole. They never changed my status, and never changed my deductions.

I now owe the IRS $4085.

Plus a $131 fine because my employer didn't withhold enough.

I am so angry right now I can't even see straight. I did everything I was supposed to do, and someone on the other end completely dropped the ball. And as a result, I owe four thousand dollars in taxes, plus a fine out of my own hard-earned money. I am livid.

Someone is going to hear about this on Monday.

Yes, I can cover the tax amount with my well-timed bonus, but I want my $131 back ! It wasn't my fault someone at Payroll ignored me.

I'm going to be on the rampage Monday morning. Payroll, watch out.

Gee, my payroll department did something similar...took $250 for January health insurance out of my pay even though I told them in November (!) to cancel it. Is being a moron a job requirement? I'll be ripping some new orifices along with you to get my money back.
