2014: A List Of 97 Taxes Americans Pay Every Year

If you are like most Americans, paying taxes is one of your pet peeves.  The deadline to file your federal taxes is coming up, and this year Americans will spend more than 7 billion hours preparing their taxes and will hand over more than four trillion dollars to federal, state and local governments.  Americans will fork over nearly 30 percent of what they earn to pay their income taxes, but that is only a small part of the story.  As you will see below, there are dozens of other taxes that Americans pay every year. Of course not everyone pays all of these taxes, but without a doubt we are all being taxed into oblivion.  It is like death by a thousand paper cuts.  Our politicians have become extremely creative in finding ways to extract money from all of us, and most Americans don’t even realize what is being […] Read More

2004: The IRS has an Income Tax Problem

January 19, 2004 The IRS has an Income Tax problem. Tens of millions of Americans no longer file the form 1040. Why is that? Well, besides the fact that government consumes 40 percent of the fruits of our labor and people sometimes have to make a choice between feeding their families or feeding Uncle Sam; people are tired of IRS abuses, lack of candor about the law and the need for true due process when American¹s interact with the IRS. The greatest abuse being the IRS’s and our elected official’s refusal to tell the people what law makes them liable to pay the Individual Income tax. This silence on the part of our elected officials is responsible for the mood of distrust and ever-growing suspicion of government at all levels. This is exactly what the IRS hoped to avoid when it came out with the kinder, gentler version of […] Read More
