Last year was the first year I made quarterly estimated tax payments in both my name and my husband's. (We were married in 2007, but I kept making them under just my name for the sake of consistency.) Today I received the packet of forms for 2009... And they had my name spelled wrong.
Now, I know that Katharine is apparently very difficult to spell — I get everything from Katherine to Katerhin. (Don't ask me how they got that last one. All I know is it was in a byline and I was pissed.)
But really, this time it's from the IRS. You'd think that would mean something.
Let's hope they are better at social security numbers than they are at names.
