I got my financial disclosure info today.
I am too lazy to find where I have talked about this in the past....so to recap for those of you who don't keep this very important knowledge at the forefront of your mind....once a year we have to fill out this very invasive financial form as part of his security clearance. It is to make sure that we aren't in a position where we would accept payment from other countries to do bad things.
I hate filling this thing out. It requires looking up a ton of stuff. And every year I tell myself if I just recorded this stuff as I go, it would make it easier. And every year I start...and fall off the wagon. So here we are, back at square one.
I always kidded around that all they do with this thing is file it. They never look at it, let alone verify it. Well, last year there was a guy in his office who did have his audited. And it turned into a huge thing over something that was nothing. He bought (sold?) a house...and the price was $XXX,900. He rounded it to the closest thousand....so it was off by $100. (and for the record, the form tells you that you can round to the nearest dollar...he figured that the amount he listed was close enough and made for easier math) And they called him out on it, and it turned into a pain in the butt.
So, now in addition to the usual finances (bills, checkbook, etc), I have to finish the taxes (ugh, I have been avoiding the state taxes, but the time has come to just finish it and cross it off the list).....and fill out the disclosure.
These 2 BIG financial projects are public enemy number one this weekend. I am sure we will have a showing at some point (although we really REALLY need to sell the house....I would love one weekend off), but I want these done by the end of the weekend.
Anyone else have a big financial project you are working on? Still doing your taxes? Overhauling your budget?
