Tax return!

Friday, March 30th, 2012

This year, the MRA was somewhat less inclined to distribute hard copy returns. I was at the headquarters mid March and asked for the income tax form. I was asked for my TAN, was queried why i could not file my return electronically, that i could file the return here. That day i was very moody because there was only one officer who was in charge of keeping and distributing the forms and that i had to wait for fifteen minutes just to listen to some rhetorics. When i snapped whether she would refuse to give me a form, she replied ‘i would give only to you’, one form per person. Those who were present that day were very appalled by that attitude. It is true that in an attempt to go green, the institution is converging towards paperless return, but it must bear in mind that not everybody can afford to pay a high price for a crappy connection. Now ever since i don’t know whether that has changed.

So did you go to the MRA to get a form, if so how was your encounter?

Happy filing/efiling!!!

Glory to thee!!

10% rise!!

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Since this morning, the price of LPG has risen by 10% to reach MUR 330 the 12kgs cylinder. Following this increase, this will undoubtedly result in a spiral price increase of basic commodities like gato dehuile, dholl puri, faratas, and other snacks, you name it. Despite the reassurance that the price of bread will remain the same, i doubt this will be the case. This increase has certainly given bakers a reason to add value to their argument. The price of gasoline and diesel however remained the same.
