Of Interest: Crazy Tax Problem

Inline image 1

Look at this image a friend of mine sent to me just now, taken from her state tax return. She underpaid by 66 cents. She now has to pay $30.86 in interest for “underpayment of estimated tax.”

She’s understandably outraged by this, but doubts that it’s worth fighting. What do you think?
