State of Mass has a real racket going on....

Today I received my "big" Mass state tax refund check....it was supposed to be $7.54, instead I received a check for $6.00. No explanation, nothing. Just a check in the wrong amount.

Over the years I have received several notices from them saying there was an error on my taxes (no detail as to where the error was) and that I owe an additional X dollars plus interest and penalty for amounts like $10.39 or $13.10 etc.

It's the very rare person that's going to go pull their taxes out and try to figure out where the error was, then spend the time arguing with the tax people to get it corrected...no, for that kind of money, the overwhelming majority is going to just write a check and move on. I know of other people this has happened to as well. I swear the state is just randomly picking people to hit up for a few extra bucks.

Worst part...I don't even live there, but have to pay state income tax becaused I worked there. Done with that now that I'm working from home!

So...now I got $6 burning a hole in my pocket....what can I splurge on?

You could buy a gallon and a half of gas.

But now that I'm working at home, I hardly use any gas...I filled up on April 1 and didn't get gas again until last Saturday. And it's not like I didn't go anywhere...
