As the supreme procrastinator, I finally made myself sit down last night (after the fortifying bottle of wine--this is the one occasion I ever let myself drink to nerve myself up) to do my taxes, and discovered that I have completely misplaced my W-2 for one of my jobs.

Aha. Ahahahahahaha.

So, I'm filing for an extension. Then I remembered I'd have to file an extension with Maryland, as well. So I went online and this is what the website says: "If you already requested an extension from IRS for your federal return and you do not owe additional state tax, you receive an automatic six-month extension for filing your Maryland return." They go on to explain other options, none of which I qualify for. I haven't a bloody clue whether I owe additional state tax, but I doubt it. I never have before, anyways.

Sooo... I don't have to do anything? "Automatic" makes it sound like I don't have to do anything. But I distrust the government on this. I fully expect to get bitten if I take this at face value.

If I thought I'd get through to an actual person, I'd call the help line, but I'm at work all tomorrow then at the Center til nine, and I can't just hang around on hold for up to an hour, my boss'd throw a fit!

It doesn't make it any better that this is completely my own stupid fault.
