    So much bills, so little gear. Can't afford GAS - my GAS was cut off months ago.

    The beginning of a month is always the worst. Mortgage, electric, phone bill, internet. On top of other expenses it becomes the one uncomfortable week of the month because I'm on a strict saving regiment. It'll pay off down the line but for now it's difficult.

    This reminds me of a tax expert telling me an unchallengeable way to avoid income tax - have no income

    It ignores the presumption that people want the thing though, and accept it so much that the solution is meaningless, like if I told you to save on hats by chopping your head off

    That doesn't work where I am, I earnt zero income for 2 years but still receive tax bills based on forecasts predicted using the previous year when income was earnt. Apparently it's up to you to prove you didn't earn what they guess you might have earnt.

    English tax authorities also presume repeat income and automatically assess in the absence of a tax return, but you have a duty to do a correct tax return anyway such that there should be no prejudice?

    I see it more as them dreaming up a random figure and invoicing you for that random amount. Unheard of and not legal in any form of finance/ business that I know of. Especially when self employed with wildly varying levels of income.
    You might have one penny to your name with no income in the foreseeable future and they demand that penny and several thousand more based on a random guesstimate. When quizzed on it their solution was to spend the $500 plus bucks to have taxes done to prove you didn't earn anything for the period. How can you do that when you have earnt nothing and have one penny left because you have been paying the bogus bills to avoid prosecution until your finances were completely depleted?

    Most people couldn't do it even if they wanted to. I'm just lucky I guess.:)

    I think the loonies must have chased all the rabbits down and ate 'em around here. We used to have cottontails and Jacks everywhere, but it takes a search warrant and a pretty good team to find one now.

    I hear you.

    An insurance company can send a lawyer a settlement check with a bunch of the wrong people's names on it, submit the "payment" info to the IRS and the IRS assumes all the money went to the lawyer (and that he owes taxes on all of it?) even though the insurance company still possesses the money.

    So, then the lawyer inadvertently pays taxes on all the money, and by the time he sees the error the IRS says it is too late to set the record straight and give the lawyer back the tax money he paid but never owed, on the funds he never received that were almost entirely intended for someone else all along.

    I'd like to continue this odyssey but the rules of the forum don't permit it.

    +

    However I can tell you the Social Security Administration learned of the correction to the lawyer's income and recalculated the lawyer's income for SS purposes and determined a smaller Retirement check would be in order for the rest of the lawyer's lifetime. Fun, eh?
