Don't forget your taxes

Todd: Daddy, what do taxes pay for?
Ned: Oh, why, everything! Policemen, trees, sunshine! And lets not forget the folks who just don't feel like working, God bless 'em!



April 15th is right around the corner peeps...

I did mine online back in February, with a direct deposit.

I've probably already spent my hefty return!

ugh. I filed mine online at midnight last week using that nifty turbo tax. but now they say it's rejected because I entered it in wrong.

I'm not getting much back anyway. A whopping 26.00!

Taxes Unions

Sure nobody likes paying their taxes, but next time I need to see a doctor I'll be grateful that my taxes fund the NHS, if I have children when go to school I'll be grateful for a tax-funded education system, if I'm unfortunate enough to lose my job I'll be grateful for a social security system, if I go back to college I'll be grateful that higher education is subsidised from taxation so it doesn't cost me 50,000 plus to be educated, next time I visit a public library I'll be grateful that my taxes make those resources available to everyone, next time I walk down the street I'll be grateful that taxes pay for transport infrastructure, next time I pick up my prescription I'll be grateful for an NHS which makes my medication affordable.

"Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society."

It would be nice if taxes went to such a fine, limited list. Unfortunately, taxes feed a self-interested, self-preserving bureaucracy with an appetite for social engineering - going well beyond maintaining infrastructure and public safety and order.

Unions selectively over-value limited job functions and sustain another layer of bureaucracy - sometimes at the expense of its own members.

Hey, you think "No taxation wihtout representation" slogan still works?
