So, I drove myself to the bank and begged for a new W-2.
"You mean a mortgage interest statement,"the teller guy said.
"Um, sure, although I didn't just buy a house."
"You don't have to buy a house to get a mortgage interest statement," he said.
"You mean, I can get a mortgage interest statement just like that? Without ever having to buy a house??"
"Yes, ma'am! We can offer you all kinds of things here at XYZ Credit Union."
"Wow! Will wonders never cease! But tell me, WHY would anyone need a mortgage interest statement if they're not buying a house?"
"For the same reason you do," he simply said.
We were getting nowhere. "Look, I don't know what I need or why I need it. I just know that I got one for 2015 but not for 2014 and Turbo Tax says I need it."
"A mortgage interest statement."
"Did you just buy a house?"
I kid you not.
If I don't ever get my taxes finished, it's HIS fault.
