GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Is anyone else going through tax HELL right now?!

I was so stoked to get my T4 from my old company so I could go get myself a speedy return... Lo and Behold, the thing arrives and it's completely incorrect.

I just spent 45 minutes arguing with the total MORON in HR at my old work, trying to explain to her that there's no way these numbers are correct. I mean, hey, I really would have LIKED to have been making $45K a year, but no such luck. I wouldn't have QUIT if that were the case...

such. a. fucking. headache.

I now have to rifle through all my piles of crap at home to find my old pay stubs, and pay to have the bank print out old statements of my direct deposit records from these guys. I'm sure it'll be another month at least before all this mayhem is sorted out.

Feel free to use this thread to bitch and rant about your own income tax woes... I'm sure I'll be living in this thread for the next couple of days!

SERIOUSLY!!!!

I was so close!

For four months, they've over paid me (on paper) by about $3grand.

I was supposed to go on vacation and pay for a course with my return. I am SO not pleased.

I guess I didn't mention to you what happened to me LAST year...

I did my taxes last year, the gov't claims I worked for a company and didn't submit a t4. I never worked for said company. I have to PROVE I didn't work for said company.

Long story short? Hours upon HOURS of calls, complaints, and reports were made, and NOTHING was done. I ended up coughing up $700 to the government because I couldn't prove that I DIDN'T work for this company that claims I did.

Now this?!?! JESUS!

Because of the nightmare last year, as soon as I saw that this was going to be a hassle this year, I had an anxiety attack. I'm trying to explain to my boss here why I'm shaking and crying a bit... Dealing with this shit has been seriously traumatic.

Does anyone else have T4-As in addition to a regular T4?

I think I'm going to have to get someone to do mine this year. Oh, and allot $2K to give the stupid government.

Also, how much does it cost to get a GST number?

What I mean, is that all said and done, there is over a thousand extra dollars tacked on to my T4 PER MONTH.

Example: I MADE $1 600 net
They claim $2 800 gross

in one month. Uhhhh, I don't think so...

If you do the math, they're claiming that I worked 44 hours a week for four months straight. Ha ha ha! I can assure you, I didn't. That also means that I didn't take a single day off. I can assure you, I most certainly did.

Oh man. Such a mess.

My accounts payable supervisor here just gave me a great idea though, she said to take the year to date amount on my last pay stub, and enter it in my income line if I e-file. She said to make sure I cover my ass and send them letters, emails, etc. claiming that they've made a mistake. Seeing as I have ALL my old pay stubs, this is some seriously good news! :D

Don't use QuickTax, whatever you do.

Fucking idiots put some fucked up registration on it, and I couldn't re-install the bastard. Really garbage software.

kmac, T4-A is for self employed income right?

make sure you get someone good to do your taxes if you're self employed. there are so many deductions and write-offs that most people don't know to claim.

I was just griping that I have to allot $2,000 to give to the government because that's about what I'm going to owe.

Anything regarding the government in general gets me fired up.

I was so ready to walk to markham about an hour ago and start inflicting some serious pain via blunt shovel method.
