Well, this is embarrassing and upsetting, but I'm going to post it anyway. For several years, I haven't filed our state taxes because we owed money. I kept intending to get it done and never did. Tom had no idea until we got two letters from the state for 2 of the years (2006 & 2007). Haven't got anything on the other years yet. So those two years are filed now and we are trying to work out payment arrangements. I'm posting this before the debt list so it will make sense when you see the Oklahoma Tax Commission on the debt list. Not sure yet how much we're going to owe between interest and penalties, but please pray that they will work with us. I have been consumed with guilt and feeling stupid ever since we got the letters. I feel like Tom should hate me and be angry with me, but he has been his usual understanding self.
I just feel like this hole keeps getting bigger and we are fighting a losing battle.
And just a note to everyone: Ignoring stuff does not make it go away.
