I hate admin and I hate numbers too. Put the two together and you’ve got January, the month of doom.
It’s a very hard thing paying tax, yes I know it’s our social responsibility, the part I’m happy with, as well as a legal obligation but I can’t help but feel we’re just handing a bunch of irresponsible bastards the funds to do whatever the hell the like. And it’s even worse when you didn’t vote for them and they obviously don’t know what the hell they’re doing.
I’m closer to the wire than ever this year. Turns out a wrong box got ticked last time around so I’ve had to take this tax return apart and redo it from the start, just in case. It’s one thing to have a wee flag next to my name on their books, it’s another to be in the “Keep an eye on this chancer” file.
It’s all good though, I like it better this time around and anyway, I do my best work when I can see my deadline on the clock rather than the calendar.
