Have you picked out your Election Day outfit?

    I had a similar situation with my small business. The state actually sent the paperwork to my attorney, but my attorney had moved her office and, somehow, I never got it. Thankfully, I finally figured it out, but there were fees involved. I’ve since taken the attorney out of the equation so I receive all forms directly.

    An Election Day outfit is something I hadn’t considered! 🙂

    • Apparently the year I started my business was the year they stopped sending the bill. I don’t yet know if they’ll be a fine, but I don’t think so. It’s a weird form that I have to fill out (and pay for) that shows that my business does not conduct business in a certain way.

      I’ll be in Suffragette white. Outfits are important.

  • Yay for another positive growth week! That’s so frustrating about the state taxes issue. California is apparently on a rampage lately, too. Our family-owned LLC paid a payment late (allegedly) back in 2013 or so, but they sent no notice of the penalty or anything. Three years later, with no notice or follow-up, our LLC is suspended. WHAT?! We’ve been trying to sort it out since June. We paid the penalty w/interest, and asked for reinstatement. They then said we also didn’t file our initial tax return from 1995 (zero activity that year). We had to prepare and file a 20+ year old zero tax return and pay another $3,000+ in B.S. penalties to get reinstated. Totally ridiculous. And still not reinstated yet! Waiting for them to process the paperwork.

    • Holy cow! Twenty year returns are ridiculous! They’ve threatened to take my LLC, but I hope the paperwork is enough to forestall it. No idea what the penalty will be uet.

      • Fingers crossed it won’t be bad. California is probably one of the worst states, so I’m optimistic for you.

        • I think I may be lucky and have a 10% penalty on $0, which is what I calculated.

    The sleeping on the job thing kills me but I know people out there do it (and a lot worse!) It’s amazing how the government can have all of our information but only find us at the very end! Hope the penalty is $0 as you calculated!

    • Thanks! It bugs me, too. Maybe if it happened once, but the ongoing nature and the fact that all the other cubicles have to hear her snoring. Not professional.

  • Crazy stuff, ZJT! Agreed: That lazy coworker is stealing. Good job standing up for what’s right.

    Taxes… I won’t get started, but I hope it’s all sorted out in your favor. Keep up the good work, and thanks for the good update.

    • I’m still pissed that they don’t supervise us. They should have known based on her productivity. I talked to another coworker yesterday and he told me that our project manager literally woke her up the one day he was on-site. No penalty for her. His company would lose money if she was fired and look bad for choosing her. It’s ridiculous.

      • What?! “Look bad for choosing her”? They already look bad for choosing her. She’s sleeping on the job. It’s costing them in terms of low productivity, and low morale – not only of the person/people who have to pick up her slack, but also other workers like you who have to watch her get away with it. Wow.

  • I think we’re all in the same boat with the markets right now. 🙁 Well, stocks are on sale for a bit at least. I don’t have an election day outfit. I think I will go with ninja black. I’m going to go straight home from work, having raided the grocery store the day before. If there are riots on election day/night I’m going to fade into the background until I can sneak into the house, and then barricade the doors and windows. If my roommates aren’t home yet, well, too bad for them. Ha.

    • That’s also a good plan. I already purchased the champagne to celebrate with my girlfriend. It doubles as a weapon, if necessary.
