OK - I have to add my 'the X is a moron' to the current flood of stupid X posts.


My X and I recently finalized our D after 5+ year since dday.

He apparently is in trouble with the IRS in the 5+ figure neighborhood. I have been filing married but separate for years. He knows this. I don't know if he hasn't filed or filed wrong but apparently his accountant just told him he's on the hook big time.

He just went out this weekend and bought a brand new carbon fiber bike. Posted it on facebook and then his camper van broke down and needs a new transmission. He has other vehicles but this will be getting done tomorrow.

This man has spent years telling me how financially irresponsible I am. Does anyone see the irony hear.

Friggin genius. Always had the money for new toys and wondered why we were broke.

Reality is in a galaxy far, far away from them.

This has me thinking......how many unremorseful WS's are terrible with money? How many just think about the present, and not the future with both money, and with their relationships?

^ ^ ^ That would be mine, sparky ^ ^ ^

I handled EVERYTHING. Dude still has bill collectors calling me 4 years post D.

AJ's MOM

Yowzaa about the IRS! I applaud you for filing married but separate for YEARS as this is, in regards to taxes, the worst bracket (so I hear).

My also "brilliant" stbx decided to go against my decision for each of us to claim one child for 2012 and he claimed both children. I didn't know until my tax return was rejected. Under IRS's residency test, I have the right to claim both children so I did.

Guess what stbx's attorney's solution was ~ we both refile and claim one child. Fuck no. He took advantage of my original offer and he fucked up. Guess what the 2nd solution ~ we refile as married filing jointly. Fuck no. Actions meet consequence. The IRS will now investigate. Not. My. Problem.

You know what really sucks, I was actually (well, legally I still am) married to this idiot.

Yep, that would be my POS! Couldn't spend it fast enough on stuff we didn't need and that always left us living paycheck to paycheck. Now that he doesn't have me to help bail his ass out, it is only a matter of time before he is in way over his head (more so than now).

Every time we would catch a break it would be only a matter of time before we were back in the hole. Same pattern over and over. That brings to mind a quote that fits my POS PERFECTLY!

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.

Yep. That sums it up alright!

Sparky....good question to ask in the General Forum. Probably more true then most know.

My X has actually been stashing away a fair bit of cash since we split. He was always sniping at me b/c I was struggling financially after we split...umm yeah, now I have 100% of the bills and oh by the way I got laid off, used all my savings that I hid from him and had to take a job that paid 60% of what my previous job did. Yeah I was struggling. No I don't always make great financial decisions but I am not nearly the frivilous francy he made me out to be.

Yeah he's had all this extra cash because he hasn't been doing his damn taxes each year, didn't change his deductions when we split and now he's hurting. But instead of sending the IRS a check, he just spent thousands on a bicycle. And trust me, that transmission will get fixed before the IRS gets paid.

I'm just digging myself out of the hole I was in. I've made a dent in a few things. I've also splurged on a few. I could be better but holy hell! I've filed my taxes.

Yeah 5+ years was just waiting. He had great health insurance.

I'm pretty sure Rico hasn't filed for at least the past three years. Again, it was something I handled.

The kicker is 18 months of those three years he collected unemployment. NON TAXED UC.

I can only imagine...

hexed posted 9/26/2013 16:00 PM

Oh AJ -- same thing. I always did the taxes.

I think for a while he was blaming me b/c I made a significant mistake on our 2008 taxes. The IRS came after him and garnished him. I can't imagine where my head was in early 2009 when I did those taxes, a year after dday, in the middle of filing D and bankruptcy. I just can't imagine how that mistake happened

Apparently, all mistakes following that one, including not filing his own taxes, must be fault.
