Or you can opt to pay in interest-free installments. I frickin hate tax bills.

if you eat enough of that, your hair will fall out. then you can save on shampoo too. your savings can be invested, and your dividend / rental income taxed again, so you can eat more Maggi Mee etc.

you see, all this is designed to make you rich! :cool:

What was that supposee to mean? :???: Baf was just enquiring if anybody else had gotten their tax bill yet.

If you are talking about all taxes, well it's still cheaper here. Or at least you have the option to keep it cheaper because the taxes are mostly on the luxury goods here like cars, stamp duties and so forth and not a direct income tax like in aus. If it's on income you can't escape it. But you can lessen you tax impact here by adjusting your living style.

plus no capital gains tax here so you are not penalised for investing for your future.
