Taxes

I filed my 2018 taxes yesterday.

And I owe the federal government more than $2200.

This is the first time in years that I’ve owed.  Some factors: 1099 income from Circus Harmony and from Variety Children’s Charity.  And pension distributions from my father’s estate, but that chunk had a huge piece of tax withheld.

I can’t help but think that the middle-class tax reform so widely proclaimed by the previous Congress might have had something to do with this.

My 1099 income shouldn’t have kicked the taxes up that much!
