April 17th, 2012ye old tax day
While I understand and respect the purpose and reason for taxes, I’m still sad that I have to pay them – particularly when my tax rate hovers around 25-30%. The estimated taxes we paid last year were just shy of what I needed to pay, so fortunately my last check for 2011 wasn’t too bad. My first check for 2012, on the other hand, was very sad.
I’ve got to figure out how to be more like Mitt Romney… and that is the only time anyone has ever uttered those words, lol. Because he’s taxed on investments and not earnings, his tax rate is half mine. Total nonsense if you ask me.
