Audit, Part 2

April 12, 2011

Continuing from Part 1 of my audit saga to “celebrate” tax day…

In preparation for the audit, I had to create a list of all of our 2008 medical expenses with the accompanying documentation.

Luckily most of it was all in one place: shoved into a 5-inch tall folder that I shoved in the back of a drawer hoping never to see it again.

I was surprised that there were actually only a handful of receipts from the RE. But, each one was for an exorbitant amount of money.

The medication receipts, on the other hand, were plentiful, since literally dozens of different prescriptions were required for drugs to inject, swallow, or stuff into my hoo-hah.

Unfortunately not all of the receipts were handy.

Stay tuned for Part 3 tomorrow…

    holy crap. i hate the idea of reliving it all again….almost as much as the thought of being audited! 😦 boo.

    Oh the holy insurance! I wish IRS had some sympathy for us IF’ers!!

    Does an audit involve someone coming to your house to see your receipts? Because that’s when I’d drop a giant folder on their lap and burst into tears…

    That truly sounds nightmarish.

    Man, as if audits don’t suck enough, you have to see all your RE expenses again? That sucks. Sorry 😦

  6. WiseGuy Says:

    Okay, even though you had to open it all and relive all those, I am so glad that you had saved the receipts! What would those tax people have done, if you could give amounts from memory but no proof? Would they cross-check from the clinic/hospital?

    I have my papers but haven’t saved up the receipts.

    Staying tuned for Part 3.

    What, because you didn’t have enough else to do? So sorry you have to go through this, too.
