  • It always leaves me scratching my head, just like at work when certain classes, actions and procedures are deemed Mandatory and still people do not follow through-is paying taxes now optional? heck, we just received a statement because we've lived between 2 states and we owe additional back taxes for 2008- Ok, called the CPA, filled out some forms and sent a check-all within days for a couple of hundred bucks-yet millions are ignored. People that think they're special, above it all and the rules do not apply to them P*ss me off-

  • I couldn't care less about how much they make. I just think they should pay their taxes like everyone else.

  • DUH>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>That's why the system needs to change- But thanks for the tip LOL

    Well then I'm sure you already knew that MANY of the women on here do not understand that if you make over $250,000 that you do NOT take it all home!! Many of the women in here see all of those zeroes and to them it's like hitting the jackpot!!

    My comment was directed at THEM, not you the "financial wizard" with infinite wisdom! Funny, though how in terms of income and wealth, my husband and I are probably equal to you and your husbands wealth, yet I/we actually mind paying taxes through the nose-- willing to pay my fair share but not everyone elses share! Why is that?! :o)
