a message about tium mas – your comments appreciated

Shalom Gidon!
Thank you for your blog – it’s quite a nice support! 
Thank you aww shucks
I am an olah from Toronto,  
 and while I have a job at a bar, I am also getting into the business of doing English voice-overs for videos.  
good luck
 The company I now work for requested a Teum Mas. Two questions: 1) Where in Jerusalem do I go to arrange one of these?;  
a long time ago, i got one, pretty easily. i went to Kanfei Nesharim (66 i think) but I live in Maale Adumim, you might need to go to Center One
 and 2) Do I need any information from my other employer when I go to arrange this for my second employer? 
I think how much you expect to make from all your employers total 2011. If you are follwoing the adventures of an Osek Zair, than you probably have nothing to worry about:-)
But I think nowadays you can get a teum mas via the Internet! In fact, it might even be the better or even only way…
Please keep me posted. I will post this on my blog for others to chime in. Gotta love Web 2.0…
Thanks, shavuah tov.

Doch Shnati Deadline Extended !(what a surprise)

May 4, 2011

Hi loyal fans!

I apologize for not updating this blog as frequently as I should. Please submit your request for your money back in triplicate:-)

Anyway, great news!

As I had a feeling would happen, Mas Hachnasa has extended the deadline for submitting the doch shnati tax return. It was scheduled to be April 30, 2011. This was three days after the end of Pesach, and Shabbat, by the way.

Anyway, nu nu nu I was a naughty boy and didn’t submit my form till then.

But as I said, I had a feeling it would be extended.

So today I succeeded in finding a phone number where someone answered. 02-6559559 ext 6 then 2. That brought be to Galia in the Mateh, and lo and behold, she answered the phone!

So I asked her if there has been an extension. She said I think so, wait a sec. She asked a colleague and he said yes (get this) till June 30! That’s right, not one month, but TWO MONTHS extension!

You can all go back to sleep now.

BTW, you have to submit it by Internet online starting this year. Bli neder, I will report how (easy it is) to do this.
