Tuesday, 12 September 2017

March 2013 to June 2013

Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

I got hit with Robodebt recently requiring me to detail *exactly* all my income from 2013.

I ended up with a bill for $154.52 which I paid because I couldn't deal with the stress of objecting.
(I cannot imagine how people deal with the ridiculous debts raised!)

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

This whole process is unjust and immoral: speculative invoicing.
But I guess the $50M corporate tax cut has to be paid for somehow [/sarcasm]
