Also (and I keep forgetting to say this) tomorrow is the last day of the tax year.
Big woop, I know.
But, if you were to give your April donation tomorrow, you then get your 1/3 tax rebate back in a couple of weeks, rather than next April.
And while I’m at it, I must say “thanks” to the IRD. We may not have the best government, but our personal tax system works pretty well in my book. I’m always amazed at how quickly those guys get my charitable rebate back to me. As someone who looked at the American tax system in High School, I have no desire for us to adopt that particular aspect of American culture…
(Heh, and they thought King George was bad!)
I have a similar announcement to make… October-ish. Someone remind me, I never got around to it last year.
