INTRICACIES OF THE INCOME TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 30 January 1912
INTRICACIES OF THE INCOME TAX. Despite the publication of instruc tions as to filling in the income tax papers, the paper is so complex and alitruse that rather than comply with the departmental edict, and its result ant aftermath for disobedience, a certain few of our public are en deavouring to augment a strike; and approach the Government in the hope that tuoy will send to each) district a duly qualified accountant to grapple with the complexities of the form. One man yesterday .called at the "Lead er" office, and averred that ho was i becoming prematurely grey-headed I through worrying the thing out. 'Sleep- I ing or walking it was in his thoughts like a hideous nightmare, and the ) sooner the climax comes the bettor I for him, as the strain Is too great.
