So, because my business expenses on GeekGirlCon exceeded my sales, I had deducted all of them to come to me owing $0 on my sales taxes. The Washington State Department of Revenue disagrees and considered my tax return to have been "submitted without payment" so they charged me an additional $5 penalty on top of the full sales tax. How nice of them.
Oh well. At least it wasn't an enormous amount, or a subpoena over $18.
I should have probably just paid the $18 to begin with but whatever.
I do wish they hadn't taken, what, four months to get back to me on this? But, y'know, that's government in-action.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
