I’m such a failure

by disgusting

I haven’t had anyone do my taxes yet, as this week’s already been planned out for me, so I have to wait for next week to see if I can get one of the free spots for doing taxes. I tried to do it online and found that I’d owe $1000 to federal and $200 to the state, and why I don’t fucking know. It makes no sense. My boss says I make too little for taxes to be taken from my checks, so the gov won’t take anything week to week but expect $1000 in a lump fucking sum at the end of the year from a poor person not making shit??? Makes no god damn sense at all. And then, I could lose my healthcare for making over the poverty line. Hard work gets you fucking nowhere. 🙁

I also lost a little USB drive that I wore around my neck, had personal stuff on it, could possibly have sensitive personal docs on it too, but I haven’t used it in a long time to know what’s on there. Someone must’ve found it, because I looked in the place I’d lost it again, and found there’s no real way it could’ve been totally out of sight. Worst part is it could hurt severely someone else, if whoever took it doesn’t just erase everything and is some uptight prude who’s gonna get offended by something that’s on there… …. sigh. I fail at everything. I guess I can’t be trusted after all. :'(

I’m a tax wiz. What was your gross pay?
You say you paid 0 into federal?

No dependents, single, just 1 like I always fill out. I get $150 a week, $200 if I’m lucky, $0 to a few cents comes out for federal while medicare will take a whopping $12-20 a week. Initially I made more, because I started on a full time project. But they’ve been dropping my hours little by little since last fall. So I made $15,451 from my first job and $3811 from my 2nd job. I pay most of what I get each week for rent, just to rent a room off someone.

Ouch, any medical bills paid? Work expenses? Student loans?

I have student loans in deferment for being technically homeless. I’m not on a lease so I can get a homeless letter.

Oh yeah, big difference, my first job will pay me $8300 by the end of this year – a far cry from what I made last year because again, I get 10 hours a week, not 40, 30 or even 20. I get 10. So I don’t have shit to my name or a dime to pay. 🙁

Yeah… this is just bad. I really can’t believe you’re getting shafted like this…
I’m sorry…

It’s always the people who have the least that actually TRY that get shit all over…. I’m just afraid the government will start keeping my checks and then I won’t have rent or money for a bus pass every week to get my disabled self around.

they can only garnish up to 20%

disgusting 3/30/2016 - 1:58 pm

You’re sure of that? I figured I’d just get nothing at all… What’s 20% of $150?

That tax situation is terrible. I’m sorry. Unfortunately it’s nothing new, the US government has been screwing over the working poor and middle class for decades. Seems like they are the failure, not you. Like you said, the people who don’t have much that actually try are the ones that get screwed.

Even worse. I hear the guy I rent from talking about how he can make $4000/mo legally tax free and yet the government want $1200 from someone who lives on $30 a week on a good week. Why fucking even try???
