How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

Incredibly frustrated.

I currently work FOR the Federal Government.
I was overly cautious in submitting my hours every fortnight for literally YEARS, knowing the numbers entered would be audited and I didn't want to have any issues down the line.

I have now found out I owe $6000 and am required to pay within 14 days.
Even if I had that kind of money (I don't) thats ridiculous.
