Hello, is this Miss Singleton?
- Yes, it is me.
Miss Singleton, this is John Smith, your tax accountant. I must inform you that your tax statement was rejected by the Tax Office. They say that your salary and your possessions are incompatible. Your salary as a secretary is too low for you to be able to afford a luxury apartment, a new Mercedes-Benz, expensive clothing, jewelry, vacations in Europe, etc.
- Oh, and what can I do about it?
Well, let's do the following: send me a recent copy of your principal source of income, and I'll see what I can do with it at the Tax Office.
- Very well, Mr. Smith. I'm making a photocopy of it right now, and I will fax it to you shortly.
