When appliances and electric companies don't cooperate
Saturday, May 15, 2010
I direct an after school art program - so I need to complete and turn in our non-profit tax paperwork every May 15.
But the power has gone off every day this week except Thursday. For at least an hour, every day at work, usually at lunch time when I would download the IRS forms and then type in my information and print them out.
So I downloaded the forms at home today, filled in, and got ready to print. My printer no longer turns on, so I went to DH's printer - which refuses to print the pdf files. Which means I need to put the documents on a jump drive, take them to school, print there.
And hope the IRS doesn't charge a late fee for filing late due to lack of electricity. The office here doesn't care, but the Ogden Utah people are sticklers for rules. (I've gone through this a few times, where they charge us a $2000 penalty for filing late - a nonprofit, they expect us to pay $2000 for a day late!)
GRRRRRRRRRRR - just a frustrating exercise in futility.
