Tax Return - A Taxing Time

I rang up yesterday to make an appointment with my accountant. There is only a month left before having to make the tax return and I should get it over and done with. I know it's going to hurt.

Normally the owner of the business does my tax. I was informed yesterday that a standard tax return cost $110. If it was a business related return it was $220. If I had shares included then it was an additional $20. And, if I wished for the owner to do my return personally it was another $50.

And I thought finding out how much tax I would be required to pay would hurt. Not half as much as how much the accountant costs. Would you like fries with that?

Post script - I forgot to mention that I have to take time off work, which will be unpaid, to complete my tax return so there is more money gone.
