I’m a Tax Payer

“Thank you for your contributions towards nation building”

That’s what it says on a Notice of Assessment (NOA), whether you have income tax due or not. But it’s nice to finally be able to say, I contributed! No no, it’s not because I enjoy paying tax, but rather, it means that I’m officially eligible to apply for credit cards! Woohoo!

As a self-employed personnel, (otherwise known as “the freelancer”), I have to submit 2 NOAs for credit card applications, to certify that I do make at least $30k p.a. Doesn’t matter that I should have qualified more then 6 months ago, when I started freelancing – they need proof from a government agency!

And today, my NOA finally arrived.

mmMMmmm ….
