Not sure where to put this post, so I guess Current Events is good enough. I want to know why. WHY do we have to pay taxes time and time again on the same things we buy. My husband and I just got new cars, and we bought them used, and we paid a sales tax. And when the dealership bought them from the auction, they paid a tax, and when the aution got them from the rental company they paid a tax, and when the rental company, got them from the manufacturer, they paid a tax too!!! Thats five taxes on one car alone!!! How many times does the government make us pay taxes on the same things over and over again, and WHY????? Isn't one time enough?
When we used to live in South Carolina, we had to pay a luxury tax on vehicles, boats, etc... once a year. The tax was based on the value. So year one, we pay a tax on a car, then year two, we pay tax again, on the SAME car, just its a little less. I mean COME ON, Taxes are friggin outrageous!!! WHY?????
