you are lucky- there are 3 countries in the world that make you pay taxes, even if you are living abroad. I am lucky enough to be a citizen of both- US and ISR. Supposedly you can get out of US if oyu prove you paid in ISR, but no one I know has ever gotten away with it. So if you lived here you would give up DOUBLE TAX on every cent!

Why is your fed tax so high?

gross 736.29

fed 108.98
state 0.00
ss 45.65
med 10.68
dues 14.73

net 556.25

taxes fucking piss me off, sorry for the rant. Take your whole life savings, work 24/7 and the gummint takes 50% of it. Lose $100K they'll let you dribble off $3,000 a year off your gross income. You take all the risk, they take 1/2 the money. Take the same risk, they take practically nothing.

I moved all the way to Arkansas one time.

I could not handle the state income tax or the food tax (+ Arkansas Sucks).

I don't think I will ever move from Texas again, there is no way in hell I will move from this country.

Yes it does.

It'll also recognize illegal aliens as "special citizens".

That's OK, Germany has a religion tax.


The German constitution guarantees freedom of faith and religion. It also states that no one may be discriminated against due to their faith or religious opinions. However, unlike some other countries, cooperation between the state and religious communities is entirely in keeping with the German constitution. Religious communities that are of considerable size and stability and are loyal to the constitution can be regocnized as "corporations under public law". This gives them certain privileges, for example being able to give religious instruction in state schools to adherents' children and having membership fees collected by the German Finanzamt (the German equivalent of the Internal Revenue Service). (Church tax is levied if a person lists a religion on their tax form. It is about 8 or 9% of the wage tax.) This mainly applies to the Roman Catholic Church, the Evangelical Church in Germany, and Jewish communities. There have been numerous discussions of allowing other religious groups like Jehovah's Witnesses and Muslims into this system as well. The Muslim efforts were hampered by the Muslims' own disorganized state in Germany, with many small rivaling organizations and no central leadership, which does not fit well into a legal frame that was originally created with well-organized, large Christian churches in mind.

One of the reasons, BTW, the German government went after Scientology so intently... to strip them of their tax exempt status.

linkie


Unlike here, at least the German government realizes they're a buncha dipshits.

now figure in the sales taxes on the part of that you spend (include gas tax), and the registration fees for your car, fee to get your driver license, property taxes that are baked into your rent, or present in your home payment.


They sure tax the fuck out of greedy rich people like you eh?

You need to read "The Fair Tax Book Saying Goodbye to the IRS and the Income Tax" by Neal Boortz and Congressman John Linderman. You may also want to read HR 25 and tell your Congressman and Senators to support this bill.
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 5:37:49 PM EDT
taxes are like gravity, like friction, like getting old. no matter what happens, even with boortz's plan they will figure out how to get part of what you earn and spend. if the fair-tax thing works they will just increase the sales taxes later or your property taxes or whatever..

live with it.. figure out how to make more money, get yours and move on. otherwise it will drive you crazy, especially once you start thinking about what they do with your money and who administers the 'doing'. (ever had the joy of dealing with a big city beauracracy.. especially if you were ethenically or racially different from the proponderant counter workers.......?).
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 5:43:24 PM EDT
What's to stop them from raising taxes now? Nothing. At least with a fair tax in place, the people will see first-hand when taxes are increased and not buried in 10,000 pages plus of IRS bull.

WHY!??



IRS considers your overtime pay "non-essential" pay so they tax it more heavily. The bad thing obviously you get less of it and the gov't gets more taxes, but the good is that you will hit your tax targets much quicker (e.g. FICA, etc.).
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 5:51:56 PM EDT
Nonessential pay my ass, the last pay check take home a lil over 2k, taxes took 1200 I dont get there math at all.
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 5:56:17 PM EDT
Since your employer had to match the FICA you can double that figure when calculating their take.

Just like Canada, work in another country, pay taxes there, then pay taxes again to Canada on your Gross.

We can't roll over like that man.

The FairTax plan may only be a revenue neutral reform plan, but if the gov can see we are serious about restoring our economic freedom, they will fall into line. It is only the first step!

Can you imagine the power of the silent majority on the move? The left has a small army of professional activists and spinsters (look at how they handle Iraq), but a far greater number of people simply refuse to stand up for themselves! As an added bonus, we've got the FACTS on our side! What a concept!

Consider. Otherwise, may your chains rest lightly upon you....
