substantiation station

Do you have a flexible spending account where you work? You know, monthly deductions and you have the ease of a Visa for copays and other allowable medical expenses? Well, evidently the IRS has a new protocol. EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU USE YOUR STINKING CARD THAT EXISTS WHOLLY TO 'MAKE LIFE EASIER', you must submit the 3 sheets of paper they send you along with a copy of the receipt for the transaction.

Let's see. There are 3 people in my family. We have checkups, prescriptions, allowable pharmacy purchases, uncovered dental expenses ... so far this month I have 9 substantiation request letters. All mailed separately.

Honestly? Who in the name of holy hell is running this country?????

there seems to be a monkey in the white house with his finger up his ass wearing a t-shirt that has a big "W" on the front. Could be him...

Yeah what happened to that whole "paper reduction act?"

~GG: a crazy little thing called 'war'

~beth: omg, sooo funny!

~di: there's a visual

~tl: 'paper reduction act' is like 'no child left behind' and 'clean skies initiative' and 'compassionate conservatism' ... so, um, lies.
