Another (Confusing, Time-Traveling) Letter from the I.R.S.

It’s been less than a month since the IRS sent me a notice telling me I’d failed to include a check when I sent in my tax return (see ♇ ). I got a “Notice of Intent to Levy” for .

The notice is dated, confusingly, . Even more confusingly, while the first notice showed that I originally owed $5,007 in taxes, to which the agency added $25.03 in penalties and $13.15 in interest; the new notice says that I originally owed $5,045, to which they’ve added $25.04 in penalties and $11.59 in interest.

But other than that, it’s the usual blah blah that I’ve seen in past years.

In other news.
