Lets have a truce and discuss the broken promise and the nasty little surprise trick played on those who got the tiny little tax break who were expecting a large tax break and now have to pay part of it back.



Dude, you realize you are STILL getting the same tax break correct?

Please follow along, it is not that complex.

All throughout the year you should have been paying X in taxes, instead you paid X - y%.

Now come tax time you are going to get your X refund minus y%.

Don't forget you already GOT the y%.

So it is not getting any less, it is just not one big jucey check like you are use to.

make sense?

And your hate for the previous administration blinds you from laying blame on the real people responsible. Bush's ineptitude over the past 8 years has absolutely nothing to do with the present administration's decision to lower the promised ineligibility ceiling from $125,000/$250,000 to $95,000/$190,000 AND failing to get the word out.


People PLEASE read the story.

Obama did NOT LOWER those eligible for tax breaks below the 125,000/250,000. This story is NOT about tax breaks it is about the "Making Work Pay" tax credit which is akin to Bush's stimulus check.

all of your passion to hate Obama makes you say STUPID things.

Read the article, understand it, then comment...

Thank you. You said everything I was just about to post about this story.

Look, I'm a consultant and for 25 years I've had to second guess the tax table because of sometimes having multiple jobs in a year. No big deal.

Maybe if the tax system were simplier. This is nothing new; but rather, just a warning to people to pay attention. It's sort of a story made out of nothing.

Don't worry about that. Its through these debates we learn. I never wanted you to leave. I just wanted you to discuss Obama and the subject of the article. Your arguments are welcome as you put up with mine.

I doubt it mattered who won this election. When both sides are equally corrupt it just stops mattering any more.

Thanks Blaine for the welcome back. In the spirit of objectivity, I offer:

Just to point out, IRS tax mistakes are nothing new. They seem to occur under almost every administration. Here are just a few more that occurred:

Under G.W. Bush:

usgovinfo.about.com...

Under Clinton:
findarticles.com...

Under G.H. Bush:
money.cnn.com...

In this case, I say shoot the messenger, not the sender. Meaning blame the IRS but not the President who happens to be in office.

Regards...KK

Blame them both. Blame the President for never having the nads to go after the IRS and getting the tax codes fixed.

Isn't it true (I have no source for this) that more people know of the inner workings of the CIA than the IRS?

Well without a source or any "proof" I would say No. It is your own personal opinion, conjecture or supposition. And to clarify, I meant "Shoot the messenger" figuratively, not literally. The point is, the IRS and most government agencies are bound to screw up from time to time. FEMA during Katrina comes to mind. ( Brownie sure did a heck of a job.)
Boasting the largest government on the planet, oversights will occur.

Given the quagmire-cluster he inherited, I continue to give the man the benefit of the doubt.

It took W 8 years to royally do the pooch, I suspect it might take awhile to get things back on track.

Or is this supposed to be another Bash Obama thread under the guise of the IRS tax error?

NO, enough. No transparency exists, we are not given "Five days to review legislation prior to it being signed into law", prosecutions for Bush and others, credit card companies to stop NOW, and I think of a line from Casino by Joe's character; "I think I want my money back." Where he talks to that banker piece of trash. The world needs to now stand up and tell bankers, "You hold our money, and don't do # unless we say" then tell officials, "We elected you, playtime is over, lobbyists go home, find real jobs...you do what WE say now, by majority decision, we see all, hear all, and we ALL decide on major things." I cannot get the nightmare out of my head; 11-22-1963, Dallas. Or the speech JFK gave on "Secret Societies." They paid for Obama, and for Mccain. All a show. The Supreme "Court" (Circus really) knows who runs the show, and gave Bush the victory in 2000 because the powers that be chose Bush. All evil, all corrupt, UNLIMITED money, perfect credit ratings, best foods to eat, best homes, and they have this while we starve, lose jobs, give up a day of pay, get put into prisons without cause, lose our Constitutional rights. WTF?
