Tax bill, settled. Derek’s no Willie Mays Hayes.
It’s not Jeter’s fault. The government hit the taxes to his right and they just squirted under his glove.
Yeah, but he made a great backhanded flip to Posada to get the IRS at the plate! ;)
What a relief! I’d like to petition the state to follow suit with the federal government and use these funds to create an economic stimulus package of their own, making everyone’s combined share $602. Maybe I’ll even get a bottle of G2 with the extra bucks.
Or put a down payment on a bottle of Driven.
His returns did not take into account some intangibles.
By the way: New York State is going on a *lot* of these fishing expeditions.
I have some family who have lived in Massachusetts since the early 70s, but who have a pied-a-terre in NYC. They work in Massachusetts, and have plenty of records to prove their main residence.
But the State investigated them in an unsuccessful attempt to shake some money out of them.
I think these reflect the general budget crunches in New York. The word seems to have gone down everywhere — from the tax collectors to meter maids — to find money wherever it might be remotely conceivable to find it.
(They haven’t checked between my couch cushions yet.)
They haven’t raided my couch (and I totally found a buck thirty five in there once) yet, but two years ago, I did get a $25 ticket for drinking a beer in the foyer of my apartment building. That was going a bit far, in my opinion, but who’s going to go through the hassle of missing work to contest a $25 ticket? Apparently, not me.
