Once again examples of the unecessary complexities in the tax code to allow politicians to be able to discriminate among US citizens. It started in 1913 and the implementation of the "progressive" income tax.
It should be an Equal tax. Equal for every US citizen, regardless of age, sex, religion, marital status, income, etc. Equal per head.
If not enough revenue is generated to fund those things in excess of what is explicitly called for by the constitution, then cut them until it does. If it does not fund those things that are required by the constitution raise it until it does.
But quit using the tax code to allow politicians to pick the winners and losers in society and buy voting blocks.
The worst thing anybody could possibly do, is elect liberal, POS demowits. Their motto is - borrow, tax, spend and redistribute the working mans money and give to the low-information idiots that vote for demowits.
After 9-11, my wife and I lost most of a fund with a big investment company. About 10 years later we chose to close it to try and keep what was left.
two years later we got a bill for IRS from some city out in MO for about $1,600+ for taxes due on the income we were supposed to have made on that account. ($7,000 + or -) Net Gross Income??
We paid that, then the next week, we got a bill from NY IRS office for a similar amount, and two or three weeks later we got one from the MA IRS office for another similar amount. Three Bills, for three different amounts, from three different cities for the IRS for the same tax bill.
I wrote them a letter and told them they needed to compare notes and make up their minds.
Don't you mean 'daaaable check?'
