Income tax

A blue envelope between the post here in Holland means that you either have to pay tax or you have to fill your tax papers.
This time of year is for the filling of the taxpapers for the income tax of the previous year.

It is not a difficult thing for me to do but it is not one of my favourite chores and unfortunately that envelope didn't pass our house this year.

Nowadays we can fill the papers online and also post it back via the digital highway. I have been putting it off for there were problems downloading the program but they should be solved by now. Before the end of March everybody in Holland has to report their income of the previous year. We have a progressive tax system over personal income and it can reach the marginal rate of 52%.

So let's see what the end of this evening is going to bring us!
