I haven't gotten in refund in over 25 years. Normally write a check for $5K-10K every April.

No thanks. I would rather pay more taxes than be a "parasite" (really, "parasite" and you do mortgages? ) at 20 or even 50,000 a year. No thanks Look, they ain't exactly living high off the hog compared to us folks fortunate enough to sit behind desks bring in 6 maybe 7 figures and 100,000+ b boats and up. God Bless them.

That shit used to burn me up also.
Then I realize the way they have to live to get that little bit of money, $8,000 ain't shit in the big picture, I am happy to write a small check at the end of the year and live the lifestyle I choose.

Realize more than likely they have a bunch of kids to claim and one day they will grow up and then they are screwed. Seeing this with a few family members now. Used to live high on the hog from 2/1 until about the end of March. Now they struggle 12 months out the year.

Pete, to answer your question, YES a lot of people are that clueless. Sadly

USA

Edit for those of you who are gonna say they are taking "our" money. I agree 100%. This is why I vote.
The last guy I voted for helped me out so I haven't lost hope yet.
Welfare will never go away so no reason to raise my BP over it I just keep trying to be part of the solution.

Not a fan of all of ol Pete's threads but I have to back him up on this thread. I hear it over and over. Most people just do not understand what they are really paying. What he said was If they had 5K withheld and got 2k back they paid 3k in tax for the year. Now they have 3k withheld based on new rates. End up owing 2k and get the other 1k back. Now upset they only got a 1k refund (of their own free loan $to govmint) but in reality they paid 1k less in taxes than last year. So in reality they 1k ahead but think they are 1k behind.

These are the same kind that don't want overtime because it kicks them up to the next withholding bracket and believe they make less by making more. Yes on this paycheck with 2 hours OT take home may actually be less but you get it back at the end of the year.

The way I pay my guys for on the road work they get windfall large paychecks sometimes. Even though I explain in advance they are going to have withholding on this as though they make the same amount 26 times a year they always are astonished at what is taken out compared to a normal payroll.

They are happy at tax time though and then at least one more person understands this.

I guess I am kind of jealous how people like you have no qualms about saddling our country with $22T in debt yet I would feel guilt. Don't you feel bad about leaching off the tax payer?

Let me guess, self-employed for 25 years, lives in a million dollar home, has new cars, boat, kids in private school and $5k to 10k is your TOTAL federal tax obligation for the year? I see this all day long with the vast majority of business owners when it comes time to pony up.

P.S. My apologies if you are one of the few business owners who is honest when it comes to paying their fair share of federal income taxes.

Slow your role there boss man. You don't know crap about me. Yes, I have a small business, and yes I take every legal tax deduction available to me as set forth by government of the United States of America. Not a thing wrong with that, so to answer your question...no I don't feel bad.

As far as "leaching off the taxpayer"...well, if by that you mean paying more in taxes per year than alot of Americans make, then yeah I suppose I'm a parasite. My wife and I both have full-time salaried jobs at large companies....so don't worry, we don't start working for ourselves until about May.

You post this nonsense in every thread that you feel is even remotely related, and I will respond the same way every time. Small businesses and the self employed are not the reason for our dire debt situation. Government mismanagement of money, and entitlements are the big players. This country's economy RUNS on the back of the self employed and small businesses.

The federal tax code is carefully set up to be a series of incentives. It's up to you to understand them and take advantage as best you can.

If 10k were his total obligation every year and he's self employed, he'd be getting penalized for not filing quarterly estimates and would probably change his tactics within a year or two.

Stick to mortgages.

Seriously. I'm so generous I'm paying my fair share and the fair share of probably 10 other families.

Haha...fair share. What a stupid phrase.

You see, if their total withholding was $5000 and they would get a $2000 refund. They were happy.

Apparently, now their total withholding was $3000 and they are only getting a $1000 refund and they are angry that they are getting $1k less.

I was floored.
What is worse is the news stations are reporting this as if the tax for these deadbeats went up.

How do you know he was making 250 or 300K?
Did you make him a loan?
