Why Me?

Self pity post coming up here!

Yesterday I check my PO Box to find a letter from the government stating I owe $234.50 back immediately. I am so pissed. When I filed my taxes this year with an accountant I asked about all of this sort of stuff because BF and I were filing together for the first year. ARGH!!! Now I have to provide BF's 2007 net income to them so they can decide whether they are charging me. I tried calling the provided toll free number but a message stated to call another day as their call queue was severly backed up. Oh, great! So I can't even talk to anyone. I called the accountant but they have moved to their regular office hours and address. I had to leave a message as there won't be anyone there until next Tuesday.

Dealing with this reminded me that I still haven't heard back from the EI department yet. It's been over 4 months. So today when I called I told them they need to get started on this as I am leaving the country in 5 months with no date of return as of yet and I don't need any surprises right before I leave or while I'm away. She promised to send it for processing on Monday and that she would attach a note regarding me leaving. I expressed my concern as to not knowing why this was all happening and I was worried they would want me to pay back all of my EI over some calculation problem. She guaranteed me she had looked it over and if anything they would owe me money. I found that a tiny bit relieving but who knows whats true when dealing with the government.

Then I checked my payroll deposit and it appears my cheque was a lot less then I thought. $200 less. There was big issues with my last cheque and so I'm not sure if that whats affected this cheque or not. I'll have to review my stub and talk to payroll. Work has still not fixed the problems they gave me with MSP or Pharmacare yet either.

It really makes me mad that I am so careful with all of my paperwork and keep on top of everything and still this shit happens. It's out of my control but still. I really don't need the stress right now. I am also the type to want results like right frucking now and with the government.... yeah right.

Why does the government hate me?

Oh I know how you feel! I think the government hates me too! I've had my tax returns "reviewed" (mini-audited) 4 of the past 5 years. I hope it all works out for you.

awhh. I'm sorry to hear about that. If it makes you feel any better, I personally think the government hates everyone (until it's election time).
