Canadian Government to charge taxpayers who file by paper

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/02/2005

This story got many reactions from me.

You have to read this

Some of the important parts:
Revenue Minister John McCallum said on a local CBC radio show he was launching a pilot project in Ottawa called "E-file or Else," with long delays and even a 5 percent surcharge for paper filers.
And another crucial piece of the story
This prompted calls voicing outrage because some people do not have computers and in any case some had already filed their tax returns.
In the end, you have to love McCallum...

The final crucial piece to the story, which made laugh for a long time was that a sense of humor is good to have.

McCallum's voice came on once more: "To all the taxpayers of Ottawa, April Fools' Day."

Do you think that those in the Canadian government would have any future in customer relations? Or any private enterprise?

"Hey, you need to pay for your gas in nickle clad tokens and give me three roses or I'll report you and take your vehicle"

"hehe, April Fools"

Sometimes, you just want people to take your money without the horse play.
