My W-2 tax forms came in today. Based on a quick calculation using forms downloaded from the IRS web site, the government thinks it can charge me an extra $700 because I got married at the end of October, rather than, say, getting married on the first of January. I guess this is the “marriage penalty” I kept hearing so much about.

$700 could have gone a long way on the farm, too.
