Taxes, Beer & Ice Cream

So…it turns out that it is that unfortunate time of year where you find & organize all of your receipts, fill out your paperwork & consult with professionals — ALL to determine that nearly every extra penny you thought you had made in the last 365 days must be sent immediately to the government!

When you really think about the money you make throughout the year, and how much of it goes to taxes either straight away OR is taken away when you try to buy something (13% in Ontario on nearly everything!!) it seems insane. Or Sad. Or both.

I don’t mean to complain. In Canada we do enjoy a high standard of living…it’s just that tax time is painful. And that’s why there is beer. And Ice cream. Haagen Dazs to be exact.
