I’m still waiting to hear back from taxrefunds.co.nz. I applied over a month ago and haven’t heard a peep! So much for the “five working days”. I get that they’re backlogged, but they need to keep us in the loop.
It’s the first time I’ve ever gone through a tax agent. I’ve always done it myself through the IRD. All was well until last year I got stung for $500. Ouch. Why? Who the hell knows. Does anyone actually understand the tax system? Why can’t we just be taxed correctly throughout the year so there’s no owage or refunds come May?
BF just confirmed his personal tax summary, so that’s a cool $260 something. Now, how to allocate it?
I’m thinking something roughly:
Visa – $80
Car loan – $50
Car fund – $60
Savings – $40
Fun – $30
