Part 7 Reading Comprehension
April 1, 20—
Mr. Roger Earnshaw
2943 Northern Boulevard
New Orange, NH
Dear Mr. Earnshaw,
Enclosed are your completed tax forms, which I have prepared for you at your request. I am sorry to report that you will not receive the $500 refund that you expected. Instead, my calculations show that you owe $450 in taxes, as well as an additional penalty of $45 for underpayment of taxes. The reason for this is that you and your spouse have chosen not to ﬁle your taxes jointly this year. You may want to reconsider this for the future since, as you can see, it is more costly for married couples to ﬁle separately. If you and your spouse wish to continue to ﬁle separately, you may want to ask your employer to withhold a greater amount from your pay checks so that you don’t end up owing money again next year. This will be even more important if you get the salary increase that you have been hoping for.
Write out a check for the taxes that you still owe and the penalty and mail it together with your tax forms before the April 15 deadline. Please let me know if l can he of any further assistance.
