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!
