The Philosopher is lucky he’s still alive at this point. Turns out that despite having an agreement for me to claim Rebel on my tax return, he went ahead and claimed the kid… which means I’m dealing with the IRS on my back (to be fair, he should be getting a letter soon, too) with the potential of being charged with tax fraud. Meanwhile? I’m grateful for Gmail, which means I have an historical account of every single email exchange I’ve had with The Philosopher since 2006. And also? Uncle Eddie has a tax attorney on retainer who, I’m told, enjoys his work. This is going to get very interesting.
