    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.

    Yes, I keep track of mileage and expenditures and things like that, but all the money I take in (for myself, after the portion I set aside for taxes) is pretty much already spoken for when it arrives. 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.

    Thanks Moto, but I have a great CPA who doesn't love being a complete fucking asshole to me most of the time. I do need to increase revenues and am working on that at the moment.

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.

    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.
