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

Working freelance im often between jobs, this period is quiet and im struggling financially already then to receive a letter saying you owe $6322 made me furious.

Im currently expanding my business and in the same week have discovered my wife is pregnant so the timing couldn't have been worse.

After a 50 min phone call with a Compliance officer i still couldnt understand how this is possible.

The officer could not properly explain what the debt is and can only send, by snail mail, my so called over payment.

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

This is shameful peoples lives are ruined by this. People need to be accountable.
