I goofed up my taxes for 2003 and 2004 (and only figured out they were wrong when I did the 2005 return!) so I had to file some corrective paperwork with the IRS. The resulting envelope of goodies was pretty hefty, so I figured I’d slap two stamps on it and send it on its way. Yesterday I received the envelope in the mail with a note that I owed nine cents of additional postage.

Luckily for me– because I was in a smart-aleck mood– I had a bunch of one-cent stamps laying around.
