Income Tax Withholding should be eliminated
I underwithheld this year, and am now writing a check for 28% of my total tax liability. Even though my effective tax rate is kinda decent, my mood at having to send that
much money to these federal government bloodsuckers has me feeling like this picture.
The LARGE amount of money I'm sending caused me to really look at my total tax bill, and figure out what percentage of my income it is. Now I am focused on the total amount of tax I paid this year. A number that most people don't know, all they know is how much they get back, or how much they owe to "settle up". This is the wrong way to look at things.
Look at your TOTAL TAX DUE. Do you like that number? Did you get your money's worth?
If we eliminated withholding, we would all be this angry, and the overspending would stop.
Useful idiots being all happy about a refund are SCREWING UP THIS COUNTRY.
And yes, if you are happy about your refund, I mean you.(I intially posted this private with considerably saltier language. The cuss words you imagine...yeah, I said them) #taxes #taxes2014
