    Maybe the writer of this column should have a read of today’s Crikey specifically the article about International Vendors’ Week – http://www.crikey.com.au/?p=422592

    Follow the link and you’ll see that Robert Doyle is one of a couple of hundred prominent people (including many other politicians) participating by partnering up with a vendor.

    Bit of a cheap shot to accuse him of ‘hogging turf’.

    I received one of those notices, but I am not twenty-something. I didn’t read it too carefully, given it’s possible I may have an overdue return sitting here waiting to be signed and lodged…. Probably should take another look at it then.

    Could it be that trust kids, studying law, have lawyers for parents, who allocated significant income under a discretionary trust to their kids, (income never actually received, but a handy way to minimise/avoid tax?), and hence tax returns lodged also in their kids’ names, also never seen by student kids?

    After all who knows about discetionary trust structures better than certain commercial lawyers, if not their children?

    I guess Doyle is hoping this will make people forget how he treated the Occupy protesters.
