ok here's the situation...

My so called " better half " , i like to refer to him as "the procrastinator" mailed in our taxes last minute with a check , because we had to pay in this year.
* sigh * okay.. here's the part that ruffles my feathers...
He didn't put enough postage on the enevelope and when i got the mail today, guess what was sitting in my mailbox ? hmmm....

it's remailed and i put the entire enevelope inside a new one, that way they can see the original post stamp date. I don't think that's going to make a difference though. It was our fault that we didn't have enough postage on it in the first place. It's baiscly considered an " excuse " I'll let you know if they send us anything, stating whether or not we have to pay a late fee.

Thanks for the link Becky. It was helpful.
