Yes I am familiar w/Freud's anal retentive/anal expulsive theory; but stating one is "anal" just sounds ridiculous. Similar to those who state "I am OCD" when they aren't diagnosed the actual disorder (which would be correctly stated as HAVING OCD) or "I have anorexia" (medical definition, loss of appetite due to physical reasons/disease process) vs "I have anorexia nervosa" (psychological condition wherein one refuses food).

(I have a master's in a med sci field; laypersons slay me with their ignorance)
Instead of focusing on my anus, concentrate on the IRs consistencies, missy.


How does that slay ya?

Post #32: You need to put your nose where it belongs.


I suspect that all of the snark regarding the OP could be due to REAL problems you folks are having with IRS and my complaining about something that is admittedly minor by comparison really bothers you.

Nope. I have no "problems" with the IRS nor have had. Ever. Not once.

I am a nitpicker though.

Stating you are "anal" just sounds dumb.

Not a single problem with the IRS. Never.

It's just you.

Erm no..it's not "anal".

You're misusing the term as many do. Yes it's commonly misused; doesn't make it correct.

If you're so perfectionistic that the discrepancy cited in your OP bothers you, I'd surmise you'd be uncomfortable misusing terminology.

For 2018, I joined the electronic crowd for both federal and state returns. The state return was accepted and posted to direct deposit within three days. The IRS return was accepted, but the refund was six cents less than my computation!! In other words, instead of the whole dollar amt. of my computation that they insist upon, they came up with a refund of $____ . 94!

And no explanation.
Because of my anal nature...with all due respect (and I mean that sincerely) this is likely the real problem. In the big picture, it is what it is and...it is a first world problem.
