~DEAR IRS~ and KYRA~

Kyra Said I hope everyone had a great EASTER.....
Dear IRS,

I am sorry to inform you that I will not be able to pay taxes owed April 15, but all is not lost.

I have paid these taxes: accounts receivable tax, building permit tax, CDL tax, cigarette tax, corporate income tax, dog licence tax, federal income tax, unemployment tax, gasoline tax, hunting licence tax, fishing licence tax, waterfowl stamp tax, inheritance tax, inventory tax, liquor tax, luxury tax, medicare tax, city, school and county property tax (up 33 percent last 4 years), real estate tax, social security tax, road usage tax, toll road tax, state and city sales tax, recreational vehicle tax, state franchise tax, state unemployment tax, telephone federal excise tax, telephone federal state and local surcharge tax, telephone minimum usage surcharge tax, telephone state and local tax, utility tax, vehicle licence registration tax, capitol gains tax, lease severance tax, oil and gas assessment tax, California property tax, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma and New Mexico sales tax, and many more that I can't recall but I have run out of space and money.

When you do not receive my check April 15, just know that it is an honest mistake. Please treat me the same way you treated Congressmen Charles Rangle, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and ex-Congressman Tom Dashelle and, of course, your boss Timothy Geithner.. No penalties and no interest.

P.S. I will make at least a partial payment as soon as I get my stimulus check.

Hugs and Smiles, Glria

May all of you have a great Day...

And after today's Post I will reach 100 posts...so Please come back and see what my Give away to celebrate will be...Thank you so much...without all of you I would never be here!!

Gloria - Congrats on your 100th post - everyone of them have been informative, fun, and/or a tug on the heart! It's been so enjoyable to get to know you a little better. Here's to at least 100 more! Sally

mishebe said...

Oh my god i feel the same way! Do you think it will work? lol. Maybe the Irs will just forget what we owe. i mean it is so small. Oh maybe we will get a bailout.... mishelle

Kris said...

Too funny. It's really amazing when you think about all the taxes we pay that we have enough left over to make ends meet. I'm sure that was only a small percentage of the taxes we pay.

Congrats on making it to 100 can't wait to see how we celebrate this special occasion.

Cute cute cute photos of Kyra

Have a happy day

Kris (One of your many fans)

What a cute post. If taxes hadn't been a government idea the person who thought it up would be in prison.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Wow! I started blogging before you, and I'm nowhere near 100 posts! I just don't have all of those wonderful and unique antiques to blog about (okay, I'm lazy). Loved the letter to the IRS! You don't need a tissue-just use that old red robe for your nose! Love ya, laurie

joshie said...

Hey Grandma,
I hate paying all those damn taxes!! You described it perfectly. We love you! Thanks for the cute clothes. check your email for some more pics.
Love you
Josh

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Good grief! You're right...we DO pay all those taxes...and probably even more! We get ANOTHER stimulas check? Well...that's stimulating to know!! :) Hey...is there ever a time we get off the hook from paying taxes?
Just wondering... hmmmm...

That baby is a little dolly! Just adorable! I need another one...I wonder if anyone in the family is up for it. Only my grandchildren are having babies.

I am so happy you had a nice Easter. We did too.
Congratulations on your upcoming 100th post. How exciting. I hit mine sometime back but..the only reason I had so many was because I didn't know how to do it. So..I will never be able to celebrate my 100th. LOL ...so...whachagivinaway? :)

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet picture!!!

And LUV your post!!!!!! You go Girl! Tell it LIKE IT IS.

Woopsies... Nearly forgot my determination to not get into my truly pet peeves, in 'Blog-land-ia' this time around. Oh sigh, it's soooooooooooooo hard to keep mah' mouth shut. Sooooooooo hard.

But mah' ol' blood pressure just won't take it, anymore. -sigh- -sigh- -sigh- Looks like I can count on you, to do it though. Now and then, anyway.

Believe me, I know! That most gals in "Pretty Blog-land-ia" do NOT want us to get into HEAVY stuff, in these blogs. Ohhhh baby, do I know that!

But my views don't fade away. I'm still alive and thinking. And I still hear my 'ol' war horse' pawing at the ground, out in the paddock, now and then. He hates retirement too. And my trusty 'battle sword' and 'shield' berate me, as they rust away, hung on the peg.

But this ol' bod just can't 'fight the good fight,' like once it could. Time marches on. 'Tis time for the stronger, to carry on.

'Aunt Amelia'
