The irony of socialism is that the less money you make, the better off you are financially. I have this thought every year at about this time, upon filing my taxes. At least this year, it’s in my favour. 🙂 I’m a little behind this year in getting them done seeing as the HR idiot who couldn’t care less about his job person not working in a field compatible with his personality neglected to change my address (after asking me four times for it). Kudos to my post office in Gatineau for sending the envelope on to my PO box, even though my redirect expired a month ago!
a) are Canadian
b) haven’t filed your taxes yet
c) plan to file them with QuickTax, then I would appreciate it if you bought your software through this link.
Now, let’s see how long and convoluted a process it will be to get the cheques into my grubby little hands. Hopefully, it will happen before May 1st while I am still stationary.
One thing I am learning in this first year on the road is just how important it is to have someone you can trust managing your mail. It has happened several times now that I have asked the UPS store clerk to check my box for a particular letter, with a note that I would try again in a week if it hadn’t, and to have him write me a few days later to let me know that letter was on its way. Getting my mail forwarded isn’t cheap (it has cost me anywhere from 2$ for my T4s to 30$ when I lived in Oliver because I had to use UPS rather than Canada Post since I couldn’t trust the post office), but I much prefer to pay for a PO box than have family or a friend manage my mail for me. I still don’t know what I’ll be doing next fall, but so far the UPS store is working out just fine.Share on Facebook
