That is a bummer as probably we are all too late if we have not yet filled the online tax return.

Some research somewhere has shown that quite a number of us spent Christmas Day doing the arduous filing task. Moreover the fastest of us took between 1-3 hours, but it was more likely that most of us were pre-occupied for up to 5 hours. For some even took 10hrs. So much for Christmas Day.
