This spring, James and Kristen Dickey bought an SUV. It was a black Toyota 4Runner.
They were pumped. The Toyota would replace Kristen’s old car. It’d be easier with their two kids.
“She did the thing where she took a picture of her old Volvo, was like 'Thanks for the great decade!'” James said. “And she was going to post it, you know. Like, she was all ready.”
Then the Dickeys got the letter from their accountant. They owed $6,500 on their 2017 taxes.
“We were pretty disappointed,” he said.
