31 Oct. A date filled with apprehension and denial. That's right folks - the tax return cut-off date is almost here. Current mood: panic.

Maybe I don’t have to do it this year. Would anyone even notice? It’s probably fine.

TFN? PAYG? Input Tax Credits? What is all this?

 

7. Existential angst

What am I even doing? Who am I really? Does anyone really know me? What can be claimed back on the cost to the soul?

 

8. Anger

SERIOUSLY?!This right here is some serious %$^#$ *#*$#(*@.

 

9. Bargaining

Okay. Maybe if I just fill in part of the form, they’ll leave me alone. Seriously, what do they expect from me?

 

10. Acceptance

This is fine. Everything is fine. I am a leaf on the breeze. This tax form is but a moment in time.

 

11. Delirium

Wine was a good idea. I’m killing this. I AM A TAX GOD.

 

12. Disbelief

Wait, is that the last question? And I’m getting how much back?? Cha-ching!

 

13. Elation

Goodbye, FY2016. I’m glad I’ll never have to do that again.
