    So has anyone else stumbled across this yet?
    "I'm sorry
    For all the things that I never did
    For all the places I never was
    For all the people I never stopped
    But there was nothing I could do...
    "

    The government owes everybody. Especially those who don't pay federal income tax. I am with you on this.

I paid thousands to the government, on top of the "right" to pay hundreds each month for my HIPAA high-risk health insurance. Yeah, I love all these handouts and entitlements I get from the government. I feel the goddamn love for small businesses.

    I pay my taxes gladly because schools, roads, national security, police, fire, the list goes on and on. But seriously fuck anyone right in the fucking ear who says I don't pay any taxes because I'm an Obama supporter.

    And seriously, the reason people who make $20K and less a year get their tax withholdings refunded to them basically in full is due to the tax code, which at this point has been so shot full of holes by presidents of all stripes as to be rendered basically useless. I'm really tired of this argument that low-income people don't pay taxes and are therefore of less use to society. They pay taxes. Your fucking rules give that money back to them. If you don't like it, change it, but shit or get off the pot.
    Ahhh, running a business is great. You get to pay damn near 16% off the top to the feds for ssi/med. You get to deduct 50% though. How you "scramble" to get deductions I do not understand. Are you talking about expenses for your SP?

    Anyway, glad you like paying taxes for your services. Pay all you want. I am not going to, that's for damn sure. Why? I am not pleased with how they spend my money. They waste. I do not like it when I pay thousands in property taxes and then have 20 kids a year come to my house begging for money for school programs. Run the school efficiently. Same with the federal level. When we passed debt that exceeds our GDP, there are problems. Serious problems. I saw the problems first hand for years at the federal level. How the money is actually spent, wasted, unaccounted for is sickening. The less money we give the governments the better. Cause guess what? If you give them money, they will borrow against it and then spend it. I hever saw a federal program that needed less money. I never saw a federal program even remotely run efficiently. They spend all they have, no matter how much, so the next year they can ask for more. Viscious fucking circle.

    I guess I do not get how you have to scramble. You are running a business, you have revenue and expenses. Probably operating OCBOA or the cash basis, correct? Not accrual accounting with receivables, payables, prepaids etc... You are operating checkbook accounting basically. Money actually received income, money actually spent is expense. Ever see cash register receipts laying on the ground for cash? Pick em up.

    Seriously though, you should be keeping better accounting records it seems if you need to scramble to knock down your tax liability at year end. You keep track of your mileage for business use of a persoanl vehicle? This can mean thousands off income a year.

Mileage isn't that much since I basically work remotely from all my clients. In order to have deductions, I have to spend the money first. It takes some juggling, basically, is what I'm trying to say.
    Sounds like you need to increase revenues! Well, if you ever need help or have acctg questions, shoot me a pm.

    Related: The "47%" are actually located throughout the South, in traditionally Red states. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/...-taxes/262499/
    The dumbest thing about this 47% thing is that the right is using "income tax" as though it means the same thing as "tax". Newsflash: it doesn't. Of the 47% of Americans who paid no income tax last year, more than half (28% of all taxpayers) have jobs and pay payroll taxes. (As for the rest, 10% are elderly, and 7% earn less than $20,000 a year.) So really, it's 9% that simply "don't pay taxes", unless you want to attack the elderly.

    I also find it ironic how people on the right bitch about people who don't pay taxes, while simultaneously bitching about taxes existing in the first place. Personally, I pay my taxes and don't mind doing so, considering all the things we all use that taxes pay for.

    Sounds good. I can't put my finger on it, but somehow there seems to be a dig at me. Huh. Anyway, Romney is the best man for president. Let's all just come to this reality.
