I had a letter from the Tax Office yesterday. As I opened it, the first thing I saw was a leaflet entitled 'How to Pay'. That was a hint that it might not be good news. I read the letter anxiously. Apparently I owe 90p in unpaid tax which I must pay before 31 January 2009 or incur a fine. I will spare you my calculations about how much it might have cost to send the letter.
Instead, I refer you to Far Away's law of Karmic Accountancy which suggests that a sum of 90p may turn up sometime soon, by way of compensation. Who knows what governs such quirky magic - perhaps I don't even qualify? If the 90p should appear, I'll be sure to let you know.
Update: More details from Far Away here.
