*ARGH* THEY SHOULD TAX THE GUY WHO MADE UP THIS STUFF!

It’s that time of the year again! Getting medical bills organised, leave travel sorted out, other allowances tallied, submitting proof of investment (excuse me, but I spent it all!!). I am absolutely averse to this tax stuff. Whoever invented this messy complicated stuff. As usual, I kept it pending till the last minute. So I have to suffer over the weekend now. Absolutely my least favourite activity in the world. After ironing.

  1. Even i had a bad time with organising these stuff a week ago. Everyone is busy with their calculations, I guess the only guys who are having a good time are the Chartered Accountants :).

  2. Ironing isn’t *that* bad – I have become deft at this chore – and it’s become like a de-stress therapy for me over the years!

  3. For the life of me I don’t understand a thing about taxes. And I hate it when people try to explain it to me.

    “excuse me! I am just not interested. Tell me what I have to pay and put me out of my misery. If you shut up I’ll throw in a bit extra…. but please dont explain it to me.”

  4. Everyone hates this. But thank god that we dont ahve to fill up those 14 page return documents. And also most of the calculations etc are done by the Finance people at most corporations. Imagine how bad it would be if you also had to calculate your taxes. πŸ™‚

  5. Lets bring the barter system … you mow my lawn & I’ll give u Guitar Lessons.. no writing checks and all that silly tracking income stuff .. like my Guitar Tutor in florida once said to me πŸ˜‰

  6. It gives you the feel that you are doing something about your finance though, forcing you to do savings though.

    Have fun. If you know how it all works, its real fun.

    Cheers

  7. vevck: i’m not sure they’re having a very good time either. anyways, i definitely don’t want to be in their seat!

    venky: πŸ™‚ yeah. and even the CM seems to be working on taxes. but ours, not his!

    jag: i hate ironing! it’s really one of the worst activities on earth πŸ™‚ i think irons should be banned and banished to middle earth! i have had some horrendous experiences with them, including nearly burning the house down once!

    marco: remote tax filing? i wonder how that works πŸ™‚ but then i believe you folks pay lesser taxes than us!

    shilpa: same here! even ‘taxes simplified’ doesn’t work for me. after a while, i go completely blank!

    ritesh: the finance people have been looking rather stressed the last few days, the poor things!

    mahesh: maybe one day we will go back to that system!

    vin: unfortunately, i haven’t been doing much of that either!

  9. Aaah, and do I relate to this post.

    Well,here is how it is going to be. The punctual people will rush and fill up their tax forms and actually submit them.. some people will procastinate and wait till the end. Two days before the deadline when the real procastinators are still procastinating while the fake ones stressing out, the deadline will be extended two months down the line. Just wait and watch and remember you heard it here first.

  11. With the measure in the budget, life will be a little simpler in terms of income tax proofs. Sigh of relief!

  12. yo man says

    does everyone that earns income have to file taxes in india? or are farmers, business owners exempt from filing personal taxes?

  13. The direct tax laws are quite straight forward, but, only if you have that little bit of patience to understand them. I would be glad to help anyone in need.
