|Just enough for two.|
Tasmanian smoked salmon and real champagne.
I live on my superannuation and my husband's super. (Share and share alike around here.) And a tiny bit from tutoring. Not a big income but my needs are small. I do not have a Healthcare card or receive any Centrelink benefits whatsoever. No university scholarship. A totally self-funded retiree.
But, and this is a huge but, I pay tax on every cent that comes my way.
Some people's super pension is tax-free, but not mine or my husband's. I play according to the rules and pay tax on my tutoring income too. I swear, it feels like my taxes are supporting the entire nation at times. Yes, I realise it is not true; it just feels like it.
Oh, that real champagne tasted good. Thank you to the tax man.
