WTF is this INSTK entry in box 14 of my W2? I think I have to ask HR in the morning, since irs.gov is worthless, and Google clueless.
The lovely catch-22 in all this is that while a tax pro can probably sort this mess out, I can’t afford to pay them and my tax liability if I do, in fact, owe. If I don’t, a tax pro is a no brainer.
I refuse to be beaten.
