Taxes hurt.

I cut a surprisingly and upsettingly large check to the IRS yesterday. Surprisingly large since the vast majority of my income in 2002 was from W-2 work for a single company. Turns out my ex has an even bigger check to write, and she can't cover it yet (since she lives off her own business, she doesn't have withholding).

Maybe we can get together and revise our filing into one last "married filing jointly", and get the lower married rate, since we were still married in 2002.
