Re: Git em Done.....

What an incredible waste of time this system is.

6.6 billion wasted hours for taxes

Re: Git em Done.....

Did mine yesterday. I bought some cheap software that let me e-file it. Took about 6 minutes and I'm getting $1200.00 back. Only problem is I owe Revenue Canada 500 from a "review" I had last year. Mother****ers. I guess they decided that I can't claim interest on my RBC student credit line because it isn't a government student loan. Even though when I started college I was 17 and didn't qualify for a student loan. :angry:

And then there's this asshole...

"Congress went beyond merely enacting an income tax law and repealed Article IV of the Bill of Rights, by empowering the tax collector to do the very things from which that article says we were to be secure. It opened up our homes, our papers and our effects to the prying eyes of government agents and set the stage for searches of our books and vaults and for inquiries into our private affairs whenever the tax men might decide, even though there might not be any justification beyond mere cynical suspicion.

The income tax is bad because it has robbed you and me of the guarantee of privacy and the respect for our property that were given to us in Article IV of the Bill of Rights. This invasion is absolute and complete as far as the amount of tax that can be assessed is concerned. Please remember that under the Sixteenth Amendment, Congress can take 100% of our income anytime it wants to. As a matter of fact, right now it is imposing a tax as high as 91%. This is downright confiscation and cannot be defended on any other grounds.

The income tax is bad because it was conceived in class hatred, is an instrument of vengeance and plays right into the hands of the communists. It employs the vicious communist principle of taking from each according to his accumulation of the fruits of his labor and giving to others according to their needs, regardless of whether those needs are the result of indolence or lack of pride, self-respect, personal dignity or other attributes of men.

The income tax is fulfilling the Marxist prophecy that the surest way to destroy a capitalist society is by steeply graduated taxes on income and heavy levies upon the estates of people when they die.

As matters now stand, if our children make the most of their capabilities and training, they will have to give most of it to the tax collector and so become slaves of the government. People cannot pull themselves up by the bootstraps anymore because the tax collector gets the boots and the straps as well.

The income tax is bad because it is oppressive to all and discriminates particularly against those people who prove themselves most adept at keeping the wheels of business turning and creating maximum employment and a high standard of living for their fellow men.

I believe that a better way to raise revenue not only can be found but must be found because I am convinced that the present system is leading us right back to the very tyranny from which those, who established this land of freedom, risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to forever free themselves..."

The system turned out even worse than he predicted. Time to repeal the worst Amendment ever to our Constitution - the 16th.

Agreed.

I believe I read that it costs the US government ~$.40 to collect $1.00. That is unacceptable, to understate the point.

I dream of a flat tax, to be deducted from pay by employers and turned over directly to the most slimmed-down version of the IRS that could be implemented. (Of course, you'd still need a way to police the self-employed, to ensure they were paying their fair share.) It would be the most fair system, as everyone would pay the same percentage. It is ridiculous that someone who makes more money should not only have to pay more money, but have to pay a higher percentage of their earnings.

And what's with Congress? Is it true that Congressmen/women get paid not only when they're holding office, but also after they get voted out (until they die, at which point I think their surviving spouses get paid...?) WHAT? When the public determines that you're no longer their best option for representation, you should stop taking their money. The more I think about this the more angry I get... (Please tell me I mis-heard this info!)

BTW - my "tax lady" still has our taxes; I imagine we'll be getting them later today... I have no idea whether I'll have a bill or have a refund coming to us. My P/T photo biz generated nearly as much gross income as my wife's IT support job did last year, but I sank every penny earned - and then some - back into the business. Hopefully I spent enough to offset the additional earnings, but I'm petrified. We shall see.
