Procrastination, thy name is Mary Agnes. Beginning Wednesday, quarterly tax depositors can no longer deposit the funds through their local bank, but must do direct deposit. Of course, I waited until Sunday to log onto the website only to discover I need a pin and a password as well as my bank account number.
I was on hold with the department handling this for over 2 1/2 hours this morning, afraid to hang up because I'd lose my place in the queue. I finally buckled at 2 pm and went to lunch. When I called later in the day, the wait was only 30 minutes. The upshot of all this is that somehow I double registered (which could be fraud) so my account is frozen until tomorrow or Wednesday. If it is Wednesday, I have to pay for my bank to wire the deposit or pay penalty and interest. Repeat after me, in the future I will do bureaucratic paperwork the day I receive it.
In the continuing drama of setting up this blog, no one can register comments on my Sunday post. Did I do something? I pushed so many buttons, settings, etc., in an effort to insert the two photographs that who knows what else I accomplished. Cross your fingers that comments can be registered for this post.
