It is TIME to file our tax return...
In Japan, we have to file our tax return from Feb. 1st to Mid March.
Last year my husband had to do it for 3 people; for my late brother, father and ours. Whew, it sure looked SO complicated and I thank him for what he can do!!! He visited city office, tax office and Social Insurance Agency several times. At that time, he was so surprised that some staffs at these offices didn't have enough knowledge they should have for their work. They couldn't answer his questions for what he prepared for it. He had been even told to go one office to go another. And then, that office suggested to go to the former office??? Although he has records from last year and notes, now he is a conservator for my father who is suffering from dementia, he needed to ask some details for the deduction how the system was and so on. The same situation happened that he had to consult several times at the different office again. Finally, he happened to have an efficient public employee and finished calculating and filed ours. And made sure to copy them for the next year. As he used to be a bank clerk, he may be able to confront with the numbers a little at ease. However, he got a bit frustrated and discourged at the each offices.
I thank him what he can do and wouldn't know how without him.
Well, I'd better buy some chocolates from Godiva Chocolatier, as he has no lady colleagues to give him after retiring. Probably, it is me who will end up eating most of them♡♡♡ I hope my friends are not having hard time doing yours!!!
Love you always, *Orchid
