Income Tax Return
Each year I dread the compilation of figures, paper gathering and rifling through bank statements, book lists and receipts in preparation for completing my tax.
In the last few years I have found a wonderful tax accountant who does the final figure balance, but like everyone else, I am still left with the task of attacking the paperwork and finding the figures and like most writers; I hate, loathe and detest figures.
This morning I feel like I’ve been handed a precious gift. I have finished my part of the dreaded task and I am not talking about the ‘almost coming again tax year’, I’m talking about the last one, because I always, always leave this task until the very last minute.
So now that the dining table is no longer covered with receipts, tickets and lists I am free to retreat back into the much more comfortable and enjoyable place of my study and playing with words at my brand new, second-hand desk.
This year’s tax – I always plan to do it early – let’s hope I can manage it in July this year!
