On Tuesday I filed for a tax number. It allows me to purchase big ticket items (such as a car), open a bank account and pay certain bills (like when I renew my visa). When the tax office personnel told me that it would be ready on Thursday, July 26, I didn’t believe them. After all, a colleague had waited more than a month for his, so why should I receive mine so quickly.
They told me to return after 2 p.m. So I was at the office today promptly at 2 (it’s the American in me…) and I stood in line where I was told I could pick it up. I got to the front of the line, told her my name and she handed me the document. It was too easy!
Thanks Rosa and Flora for your help! You made my week! Praise the Lord for working in the situation!
