Why on "pox" on us? Really, we are all (I assume) playing fair and doing our returns properly!

Do you make a lot of money? I cannot say, nor can I nor should I judge you. However, $9,000/year is almost more than we get from all sources combined, other than Social Security, and we do not get a lot of SS money, either, having started at age 62, so, relatively speaking, either your accountant is doing nothing for you or you DO make a lot of money!

Are you taking all the right deductions? I wonder. And you must be having far too little deducted during the year, if you now get socked that way.

Sorry you feel upset, but I can only suggest you check to see if that accountant knows his/her onions, and then perhaps change whatever you do for the remainder of this year now.

Good luck.
