Flat tax? What did Bezos make last year? 81k, right?

Thats income. You base the flat tax based on earnings not just income.

He earned more than his 81K salary. Granted we need to clarify the earnings part.
He is not paying for his 100M house and other extravagant things with a 81K a year salary.


So you want to tax retirement savings accounts that people have already paid taxes on once already? Why do you want to make grandma eat cat food?

If you are the .000001% that would indeed be funny.

I own a little under $16,000,000 of oilfield equipment in my company, according to my last estimate.

The company, of course, is worth a little more.

I pay myself the same as my best technician plus 1% of net as a bonus.

So roughly 132,000 last year before my bonus.

What I pay myself is no reflection of my net worth at all.

Did you say your minor was in math again?

My wife had a bunch of doom porn people at work telling her that because of Trump they were all going to end up paying instead of getting money back. I don't know what happened with the people she works with but we got a nice return this year. I am willing to bet the doom porn people she works with did too, they just won't talk about it.

Shouldn't seem so hard.

Numbers I don't get to play with. We let them take as little as is allowed by law, so our return is never very large. I'm talking about the things the employer has to take out by law. That side was less, so we got to take home more every month on top of the annual raise.


I care about is how much I have to pay in total, not how much they take out monthly.

Great.

A tax cut without a budget cut is a loan with interest.

Our social programs are mismanaged and abused... There's my reciprocation.

Our foreign policy supported by both parties is far worse and self serving.

One day we'll look at our infrastructure once some bridges go out and contimplate "how did we get 5~ trillion behind on this?"

At least our subsidized corn and petroleum products will be cheap.

It may because you can't do basic math.

Right I only have an engineering degree and a minor in math. Besides that I use accountants.

But go ahead and spin it all you want.




Personally, I am paying 3,600 less a year. But hey.. maybe I'm the 1% now?


Glad it worked out for you but for me and several other hardcore republican friends it did not. if you are the 1% with those number than I'm the .00001%




Then I'm sorry that with your degree you don't understand math and make less than 40k a year.

Because those of us that made between 40k and 250k paid less this year than we did the year before.

Don't know what to tell you there...


That's a nice load of BS. Our 2019 filing broke even, zero change whatsoever from the 2018 filing's numbers, and the difference in income was only $200 extra last year versus the previous year. I did the taxes by hand myself, then went and paid a tax prep because I was convinced with the "no change" numbers that I must have screwed up somewhere. After all, we were promised "Big savings! Huge savings! The biggest savings on federal taxes paid!"

Tax prep came out in the end with the exact same numbers as I had initially. I didn't screw anything up. The middle class simply got no boost at all. Didn't lose anything, but didn't save a penny, either.

I wasn't irritated by the accusations of trumps lies.
Apparently you can discern over the interwebs truth from lies of "the right wingers".
That is some superpower.
All hail.

Guess I am not one of those "right wingers" cause I was +$2k USD this year tax wise compared to 2018.

Odd response to a post addressing Bezos.

I think when we discuss induviduals who have more capital than North Korea, it's safe to say we're not trying to double jeopardy citizen taxes.

I'm not saying we get to bend him over, I'm saying maybe he has to pay his cut.

When you said that if I was the 1% then you were the .000001%

Since we are being honest, what is your net worth?

Because if Bezos has to pay 30% on his earning you best believe that next year that percentage will significantly drop where grandma will be able to pay a percentage that allows her to buy her grits.

The system is riddled with abuse and if we remove deductions and everyone has to pay the same amount after a certain living wage then its not only fair but it will reduce the burden of the middle class.

ok since it will only be between you and me and nobody else. $2 dollars.

BTW perhaps you didn't grasp it but when I said I was the .00001% or what ever % I wasn't being literal, right?

I posted my 2017-2018 numbers.

Since I got my refund, I'm assuming that the IRS didn't think that it was a nice load of BS.

Perhaps they are treating me, my family members, friends, co-workers, employees and everyone I know differently than you?

Well, this is a conspiracy website, so maybe you have an explanation for that?

Hell, even my Montana state taxes netted me more than last year because of my Federal return.

So where is the BS here again?

Just curious.

I forget sometimes when I just go on here and be honest that there are people who have no interest in honesty and are just trying to push an agenda.

Have fun with the thread and the topic... I'll go back to writing on ATS.
