confused What are u going to do with your tax return?

With the tax return season nearly apon us, i thought id see what people are doing with theres (if they have much of one)

From the very small amout i get back, I think most of it will go into my car, cant be bothered being sensible and investing it.

A cam is first on the list. Better susp is up there aswell, but that might have to wait:(

I might aswell add that i think the system is shite. My dad, for example, is a contractor who pays 47% tax, then 9% insurance, 6% super, and 10%gst on everthing he buys (+something which ive forgotton). Gets no sick days, or holidays

Now that i had my whinge, what are you ppl going to do? Be sensible, spent it on something, or cry?

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

I'll be buying more Toll Holdings shares at <$7.20. May even mix in a few Qantas shares provided they're <$3.30.

Stops me spending the money at Herrods (sorry Rob) and getting in trouble with others...LOL

Pay off the credit card for me.

Athough I'd rather pay a realistic tax rate during the year than have to make up all sorts of shit for the return at the end of the year. Especially since the ATO has basically got rid of all the allowable deductions for my job.

Either a new PC (need a dedicated linux box and i just wanna upgrade...yes i'm a GEEK and proud of it), lower the suspension on the BA (c'mon RACV u know u wanna let me) or just put it away for a house!!

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
