True, but the illegals thank each and every one of us for making the free handouts possible.I just completed by federal tax return for last year. While taxes are necessary to operate the government, I hate to send payment to a corrupt administration. Not one cent of it will accomplish the things the federal government should be accomplishing for the citizens of this Country.
Just got the appraisal in for 2022. My home value shot way up from what it appraised at last year. People fleeing the communist states are driving all of the real estate up. Time to protest taxes again..$13k in property taxes for us here. The escrow every month is about $400 more than the principal & interest.
This is the boat I’m in right now. I’m making way more but getting taxed so bad it’s really not worth it. It’s good in the sense that you are a productive member of society and can afford luxuries in life. However your working so hard that you have no time to enjoy life or those luxuries. Not to mention being told it must be nice by all the lazy ass people who are sponging off everybody. Also trying to find workers is next to impossible. No knowledge or experience and want to make $200 or more a day. That’s if you find anyone that will show up and actually work. This is exactly why contractors have a bad name. The decent honest ones don’t see the point of it, which in turn brings the crooks and thieves out.For me, it's a motivation-buster.
I did some contract work after I retired and made really good money at it. When it bumped me into higher tax bracket and I saw that I paid almost 50% of my contract earnings because of it, I decided not to continue in the position.
What motivation is there for a young person to bust his or her ass to have things they see their unemployed friends getting for free?
