    Hi,

    yesterday I was in the center of Brussels and shot some pics of our Ministery of Finance. Those people are responsible for our income tax, and we are one of the highest taxated countries in the world.

    Hence the topic title :mad:

    I bet those over taxed Belgians wished it was just a cardboard cut out :smile:

    Rafael,

    Great shots, but where in Brussels is this building? I was there a couple of months ago and didn't see it (not that I knew to look for it!).

    Hi,

    to "Barrie", yes we would like to cut this building and the service it houses out of our lives, and use the cardboard and the papers it's sending us yearly to light the bbq :biggrin:

    to "Andrew", the building is right in front of the Culture Center "Botanique", not far away from the "Nord" Railway Station. The road is called "Boulevard du Jardin Botanique"

    Thanks for commenting !

    It's actually a pretty nice-looking building

    I hope they manage to put it to better use soon, or at least lower your tax rates!
