  • You want to pay an extra 5 or 6 thousand dollars in penalties and fees when they come after you for non-payment? It's not like they'd just shake their head and say, oh, nevermind.

  • Mine are taken directly from my paycheck so that isn't an option.

  • If you can make any sense out of what Harry Reid says about taxes I would be willing to listen. He claims that taxes are voluntary.

  • Well, I guess you could up your deductions so they take very little out and then not file your taxes and not pay your share BUT you would have to be willing to face the consequences AND not take advantage of anything your tax money pays for like- schools, roads and public safety- still sound like a good idea?
