Yes, it is fortunate it is a small amount ... sometimes my carefully suppressed fear comes to the surface when I experience the incompetence of a financial institution to whom I've entrusted my meager life savings. It's not the fact that they make mistakes ... everyone makes mistakes ... but it's the inane responses I get when I point out the mistakes that terrorize me.

I went ahead and filed on time. I'm sure I won't ultimately owe any penalty or interest ... it's just the time I might have to expend that annoys me.
