Perhaps im being over sensetive here, but when I went to pay for an overseas trip with my girlfriend on Friday I couldnt help notice that my bank account was completely empty. Funny, I got paid Thursday so I should have had enough to cover the 1700 for the trip. To my shock a withdrawal from my account for $2,287.34 had been taken ‘by cheque’ from the good people at ACT Revenue. I never even got a bill.
Now im broke, its Sunday and I cant do much about it until open doors Monday. I’ve exhausted every avenue to send accusatory bureaucratic emails so I thought I would post this to sound out if this has happen to anyone else and what you think the f*@k is going on?
I’m no lawyer, but Im pretty sure its against some law if the ACT Govt withdraws money on your behalf without authourisation, right? More worrying is how the hell they got my bank details or how did CPS let them slip off with a couple of my Gs?
As a rate payer every experience I have had with ACT Revenue has been like going to the dentist: painful and expensive. Certain individuals I have spoken to about land taxes and the like have bordered on threatening. Must be an exciting work place to produce such stress but is this their weird way of letting me know who is boss?
Anyways I’ve got to go and face an angry partner to let her know we may lose our deposit as the trip is due to be paid Monday. Fat chance of that and thanks ACT Revenue for putting me firmly in the poo.
