Today I processed my income tax return. I hired a good agent and he managed to help me achieve a higher income tax return amount than what I I've initially expected. He helped walked me through all the deductible things. Luckily I had several charities which lessened my net income. Stuffs like transport and laundry were also deducted. Have you guys processed your tax returns?

I think if you don't claim it you'll pay some penalty for being late.

@flapiz There is penalty for being late to claim it? I don't think our government has this policy. As I know, it is easy to pay but not easy to claim.

I work in an Audit Firm. It's my employer (Firm) who processes my tax returns. Part of our work is to assist employees/companies in the filling out of forms, computation, and filing of their income tax returns.

Do you do that service free for the employees or do you have to charge them? I really appreciate my accountant this year. He really did his best for me to get the most of my tax return.

@flapiz No, we bill them for any form of assistance extended in processing their tax forms. Good relief. Now, you don't have to think of that "taxing" activity.

A good agent can save you quite a bit of money. We used one when our taxes were a bit complicated and thought he was well worth the money.

This is definitely true. It's pricey to hire an agent but they guarantee a maximum tax refund which is not a bad bargain.

After availing of early retirement, I no longer filed income tax returns. Currently I receive some honoraria but its annual gross is below the amount required for compulsory filing.
