Death and Taxes

I didn't change my filing status on my retirement pay from married to single, so now everything I overpaid on my regular paycheck is going to make up for what I underpaid on my retirement pay. The only good thing, I guess, is I don't owe anything else.

Think about that for a minute though...everything that was overpaid on 70K single with zero exemptions is being taken to make up for what was underpaid on 20K married with 2 exemptions, a bit over 4K altogether. On 20K. One fifth. In addition to the amount already taken out (not quite 1K).

Single people sure pay a buttload of taxes.
