ByCheryl Strayed and Steve Almond Oct. 2, 2018 Dear Sugars, A younger colleague, whom I do not consider to be a personal friend, was open about having an affair with a married man.

"I want to know, how come I pay my taxes on time every year all the time, and even if I'm a little bit short, you always send me a notice to remind me that I'm short or that I never to pay a little more?" the comedian said.

Can I get a thank you?" she said … [Read more...] about Tiffany Haddish: The IRS should send a thank-you note for paying taxes on time
It's just four months until French workers are due to start paying their taxes directly from the income known in French as prelevement a la source.. But in spite of the fact that the date is fast approaching and the change has the backing of the French, with 60 percent in favour, according to recent poll -- it seems it might be delayed again -- or possibly even scrapped altogether. Here's a look at the the new system which would affect 38 million households in France and why Macron might be experiencing cold feet so late in the game. What is the change? The way we pay our income tax in France is supposed to change from us paying it one year late (via a one-off payment or three or ten-monthly payments), to it being taken out of our pay automatically each month as we earn.
