Sheesh, I can’t give money away. I called the Tax Department today to ask why I hadn’t received an activity statement and to arrange paying the amount outstanding. The lovely ‘agent’ (I wonder if they get cool badges to wear around the office) told me I don’t owe any tax money at all.
“But I have this letter.” I say.
“No sir, you have no outstanding payments. The computer says so.”
Amazing, but who am I to argue with a computer? The world is odd when you want to give the government money and they don’t want to take it.
