Dear Feds, Give Me My Money.

You know what sucks about having a New Year’s Baby? Waiting to file your taxes because she doesn’t have a social security number yet. It’s even worse when your New Year’s Baby was born at home, because you have to apply for a birth certificate first and they don’t even give you an appointment until mid-February. And it’s only once you have a birth certificate that you can even apply for a social security number. Who knows when you’ll get it.

There goes our streak of filing our taxes as soon as we get our W2s and 1099s. ANNOYING.

    Wow, that’s nuts! In VA when you register the birth there’s a box to check requesting a SS#, and two weeks later you get the card. You have to pay for the bc, and order it separately, and I keep forgetting, so I don’t even have one for my last two kids!
