  • Hating the IRS

    Okay...I imagine most of you have done your taxes many of you got burned?

    Two of my three jobs, plus my wife's job, failed to deduct enough last year..despite withholding at the higher single rate.

    We ended up owing $260.00...which isn't that bad, except that we were counting on the refund to help us with the car registration (my birthday is in March) and renewing my license, we now "owe" around $900.00.

    Grrr. I used to hate the ATF, but I'm seriously thinking about switching arch nemises...

    We live in a society where we're penalized for our success. The more you make, the more you owe. Meanwhile, the Welfare queens keep on poppin' out those babies -- babies we have to support! This is one of my major rants in life.

    Last year we had to pay over $5600 in taxes. This year we got "lucky" (ha!) and only had to pay $3300.

      I hate taxes! My husband worked very hard to make a large bonus every year and every year, taxes took almost half of it.

        this might sound stupid to some people... but it really helps when you want something back from the IRS and State.

        On the W4 forms you have the option to withold additional amounts. I have them withold an additional $5.00.

        This year... after spliting the refund with my ex.... I received $2748.00 in refunds.

          Why is that the more money you make (and thus have less need of government services), the more taxes you pay? When was the last time someone on welfare hired 500 people to work in his factory?

            Welfare is a choice. Period. I have no problem with someone being on Welfare if they're truly disabled or if it's a temporary situation (i.e., job loss, divorce, death of a spouse, etc.) But for someone to make a career out of being on Welfare when they're able-bodied spells LOSER to me. The vast majority of Welfare cases are people who are too sorry and lazy to get off their butts and get a job but they sure know how to lay on their backs and procreate or conduct their drug business.

            Alas, as long as we have liberals around, the decent hardworking people of America will have to foot the bill for those who choose not to make something of themselves. Welcome to America.

              We were on welfare when I was 13. My Dad had been in an accident and couldn't work for awhile. Even though my parents used it for what it was there for, temporary help, it was so degrading when my friends would find out.

                No one should get a refund. Doing so lets the governemtn use your money for a year free. You should figure out your situation so you come real close to no refund or just a little owed or due you.

                On a side note, withholding should not be done either. People should have to pay all their taxes quarterly instead of having it withheld by your employer. That way more people would vote, and people could really see just how much they have to give to the government, and more people would be inclined to look real hard at their so called leaders.

                All elections should be held April 15th.

                  I've always done what Insane has suggested so that I don't have to pay. It's bad enough my wife's an "independent contractor" and I have to pay her taxes too on the tax return! The accountant has done ours and it'll be just under $6500.00 for the refund.
                  And yes, she has it spent already.

                    My wife and I qualified for welfare when we were first married and in college. We never bothered to pursue it because we figured 'someone else' 'needed it more'. How naive we were....

                    Now, whenever we have a Presidential election, and welfare is one of the candidate platform issues, I introduce it into my Social Studies classes.....and get called on the carpet with my principal for 'bringing it up'.

                      I'm not complaining this year. We got a total of $4800 between fed and state. Usually we break about even or get a little back but this year all of our deductions and exemptions came together!!!
