Taxing • 7 October 2008 • The SnowBlog


I have two observations to make about tax. 1) Why are they playing wedding music as their on-hold music? Are they planning on some sort of nuptials with another government branch? You heard it here first. 2) Why, if I send in a tax return, way ahead of the deadline, which clearly says I don't owe tax, do I also have to write a letter to them saying I don't owe tax and therefore can they give me a sensible tax code rather than the one they've sent me which would collect tax at 50%? It's a mystery. And those are my tax observations. I won't do any more as it's not a nice subject.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
