Yeah, I know. They do for anyone. But this is the first time I've done them in 28 yrs. And husband's papers are still a mess. (yes, they really are that bad, wading through literal years of papers scattered everywhere.....I find stuff in the oddest places) The holiday didn't help, nor does the fact that husband's birthday is in 5 days and I've been riding the grief roller coast for a week and a half. My appointment with the accountant is at 3pm. Ok. I have the w2 from SS, I have some tax form from the house. I have a tax form for the retirement fund payout. What I don't have is a w2 for his unemployment. I *thought* they sent it......but if they did, it's not here. And I put all those papers together knowing I'd need them, and I found them all together in the same place. I doubt seriously I'd have randomly put the unemployment one (I dunno if I should've received one or not) somewhere else. But to be certain.......I checked the other desk and nope. I am not fretting too bad. I suppose she can get a copy. Bugs me though as I was careful with that stuff. I did tell her there are back taxes owed. What I couldn't tell her is how much is owed, what got filed and didn't, and to whom it's owed. I did find some of those we got in the mail.......but I have no clue which ones husband might have paid. She did say we'd take care of 2011 first since of course the deadline is coming up, then we'd tackle any back taxes, get them straightened out, and set up payments. She comes highly recommended and seemed really nice on the phone. She also only lives like 4 blocks from me. (due to the address I'm assuming she's working out of her home) But I can't help it, I'm a nervous wreck. I wouldn't have waited so long.......except 1. I've been dreading this like you seriously wouldn't believe (and yeah I know putting it off didn't help) and 2. time got away from me, which is a common thing for me these days. I'll pay the monthly bills, then it seems like a few days pass and its time to pay them again and I'm like wth where did the month go? I hope she can straighten out the mess husband left me with..........and I hope and pray I don't owe as much as I'm scared to death I might. Where I'm going to squeeze monthly tax payments into my already way too tight budget I don't have a clue.
