This is one of my last minute move to reduce Income Tax for the Year 2008. After reading an article from Personal Money magazine, I found out that the deduction for sports equipment is as much as RM300. Since I am active in playing badminton (we play every Wed evening) and I don't even have a proper pair of Badminton shoes, own racquet and a racquet bag, I make a point to buy one for myself.
So coincidence that when I went to the Post Office in Sri Muda to send letters, there is a Sports shop next to it. While waiting for my turn in a long queue, I went inside the shop. The shopkeeper kepts promoting this Apacs racquet. The price is quite reasonable. Below are the breakdown of the costs:
i) Racquet + String + guard = RM90
ii) 2 Compartment Racquet Bag = RM29
iii) A pair of Shoes + Shoe Bag= RM59
iv) A pair of Socks = RM6
Total is about RM184.00
