A Code Section Rant
No. This is not a rant about my cootchie.
Let me just clarify this unsightly tantrum right up front: I LOVE TO GET MAIL. In my old fashioned, backward, dysfunctional snail mail box.
Unless it’s this kind of mail.
A Schedule K-1. FOR 37 FREAKING CENTS!!!!!!
All for an amount of money that, due to rounding, I DON’T EVEN HAVE TO REPORT ON MY TAXES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paper. Energy to create paper. To package up said paper. To track said 37 cents. Fossil fuels to mail said essentially non-reportable income to my snail mail box. At a cost of WAY MORE than the income I don’t even have to report.
And everyone wonders why I was screaming at my computer yesterday. Or why I could not stomach making my living as a CPA preparing income taxes for people.
Our system is broken. I have no hope of a real fix.
End of rant.
