Taxes

Last year, I went to the website listed on the letter I got from Ríkisskatta whatever and clicked on the thing I was supposed to click on, confirming the amount of money I had made. This year, I went to the site my friend Kolleen told me to go to, and I see there that I am listed as in need of filing paperwork for 2008, 2009, and 2010. So whatever I did last year seems to have been insufficient.

Unlike probably all good Icelanders, I had no idea what day taxes were due until yesterday, and of course I had not scheduled  several hours for filling out all sorts of paperwork.

If anyone imagines for a moment that I would be the least bit disappointed to see all of this bureaucracy go "poof", they would be mistaken. I can't even say I would be grateful or excited; I would just be happy to be able to get on with the things I want to be working on.

Reyndar ekki.
Aaaaaafskaplega margir sækja um frest á síðustu stundu. 11:55 á síðasta degi er vinsæll tími
