Last week, one of my colleagues was sounding a little tense as he set out to work on his taxes.
Radio producer Josh Woo fills in here as a director on the Marketplace Morning Report, and during the 2014 tax year, Josh won big on a TV game show. Four years earlier, Josh had also won prizes on another show, “The Price is Right,” and a dozen years before that, when he was just a kid, Josh won $2000 on Jeopardy.
With Josh’s tax return now signed and delivered, I wanted to see if, with all this experience, he managed to avoid the classic mistake of forgetting to pay estimated tax on extra income.
