 I have been getting these Census letters for years, But the last two are getting very personal! I understand questions like how much land, how its used, etc  But now they want to know How much I spend on Fuel, Feed, Water, How many people do I hire? etc...

 What I want to write on it is "See my tax return". Actually that was the nicest thing I wanted to write on it! DR

I'm most bothered by the requests for names, addresses and ages of everyone involved with the farm decisions. The financials are troublesome too. Its always due before we finish our taxes and I can never fully answer the questions.

I haven't received one in a while and never got one asking for personal information. Oh my gosh I hope I don't get one. Is that legal, is it something new?

Unless its an official census ( which we seem to have every few years here) shouldnt they already have that information?


Im so conscious of scammers requesting information of late, we are currently having an influx of callers  from slovenia , saying they are from the taxation department of Australia and that we owe money. 


Word of advice , Never answer "yes" to any questions you may feel are coming from telephone scammers. Most often than not, they have so many personal details , all they need is to record you saying "yes" and you have approved something you never knew you were approving.
