Days 343-344: Tax collections in Stockholm

Almost forgot to file my Swedish income tax return this year. Fortunately, one of my friends posted (boasted?) on FB that he'd just completed his and so I was reminded. Perhaps I forgot because I owe money this year...who knows? In any event, had this been the U.S. I'd be sitting for hours filling in forms. As it is, I filed online which took approximately 2.3 minutes, including transferring the funds I owe. Then off I went to the Math Labs.

On my way, I crossed a busy intersection where a number of workers in orange vests clearly stamped with Tax Dept on their backs were on hand to collect returns from passersby and, more incredibly, from people driving by. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...gotta love them Swedes!
