Tax talk

If there’s one thing I absolutely hate about being an adult, it would be the tax thing.  There’s this horrible overall feeling that part of your hard-earned money goes to a government that you’re not happy with.  It is totally “taxing” (pardon the bad pun).

As I work from home, I get jibed by people all the time about how I’d been successfully dodging taxes.  That is not true at all.  First of all, there’s VAT.  And if I really want to be a part of society, I have to pay my income taxes just like everybody else.  Income tax return sheets are required now for visa processing and as I like to travel, it’s really a no-brainer.  Plus, if I end up paying late, I need to get a tax extension form too, just like everybody else.

Oh, I do hate it -- especially when you try to earn more, because you also get taxed more.  It’s a vicious cycle!

Tax made me hate looking (and scrutinizing) my payslip.
