Taxes suck

Well, our 2006 tax return is complete.

The only thing I have to show for working 40 to 50 hours a week last year, being away from my kids, and working Christmas and New Year's Day, is a higher tax bracket and a lower refund. In fact, if it weren't for some fancy footwork and deductions we didn't know we could take, we'd be sending Uncle Sam some extra green this year.

It does not pay to make money. At least not the kind of money I make.

Nope, us lazy asses have the right idea, sit home and live off the government... And get you head cut on for the fun of it..

No seriously... doesn't do any good to bust your ass, the gov. takes more away... I think the only reason they are raising min. wage is so they can take more

Im with the Princess. I wanna be a lazy ass too and sit at home all day and pop pills to take me away from reality. :-) I agree. Taxes SUCK. I told the DH I want a divorce cause being married at tax season REALLY sucks. If he had his income alone, he'd be getting back $3,000!!!! but with ours together and everything else, like you Cas, with a little fancy foot work, we may actually get a whopping $300 back! WOO HOO! This will be the first time in 6 years we will not pay in.

Well, that is why they call it the marriage penalty...

... in addition to being married in the first place.

I thought double jeopardy was prohibited by the Constitution. Oh wait, this is the modern-day USA, the Constitution doesn't matter unless you need it to support your side of the argument.

And the constitution and laws do not apply if you break the law to get here, then we reward you with tax breaks, cheap gas, money to start a business and food and medical care...
