Feeding The Man

Do you ever look over your pay stub and gawk "HOLY FUCK!" at the amount you've paid into taxes and social security year to date?

I look at my tax deductions all the time. That's why I'm not a Democrat anymore.

Hey T - Look who's been in charge for 12 years. This isn't a Democrat problem. It's a government problem.

I just wrote two checks to the Feds yesterday for a total of $3600. Ouch.

Jeremy,

I feel your pain. NY State recently contacted me and claim I owe them close to that amount for 1999 and 2000. Gah...

I used to look at my pay stub, but it depressed me... so I stopped!

Z - that's crazy. Where is that coming from? Did you get audited? What a bunch of punks.

as one who has traveled abroad, goto Mexico or Zimbabwe, then you will realize that we are blessed to pay taxes and blessed to live here in this country.

Jeremy - In the winding days of Guiliani's reign, there was a NYC Commuter tax introduced and quickly retracted. I lived in CT for a few months after college before moving to Bklyn. Apparently, the tax wasn't deducted and once I was a resident, the laws changed and it became a residental tax - again, it took my company time to catch up. Hence, the man wants my loot.

Troy - Agreed. This was no hate on USA post. It was a hate on the IRS coveting my already depleted bank account (for Soc Sec etc that I'll never likely see)
