After paying my property taxes yesterday I had hoped I was done with taxes for awhile. No such luck. Today I got a letter from the New York tax authorities claiming my recently filed return was unsigned. Fortunately this apparently happens a lot and they enclosed a simple form to correct the error. Still it is a bit disconcerting to have done something so dumb. Perhaps being laid off is more disorienting than I had realized. Hopefully I will avoid more serious mistakes.
