April 12, 1999: you're working for nobody but me


Gah! Capital gains! Schedule D!

My taxes should be simple. Sadly, my mother gave me some stock in a mutual fund or something a few years ago, and I get capital gains, and so they're way too complicated for the less than $100 it earns.

I thought I could do 1040A, but my post office didn't have the appropriate interest-reporting form, so I got the 1040 and then discovered I needed it anyway. And then things went from bad to worse, but I'll spare you the details.

I worked less than half the year as a full-time employee last year, so my taxes were significantly over-withheld. Tiny payoff from Massachusetts, a few grand from the feds. I'm trying direct deposit of the refunds, we'll see how that goes.
