Tax Day Delays, Headlines On The Way

In case you’re wondering why there’s been so little activity at the site today, it was this writer’s tax day.  So headlines and other notes will soon be on the way.

But on a sidenote, here’s a tax plan I’d back:


* The first $25,000-30,000 of a person’s salary is tax exempt.  You need that cash for home, food, gas, etc.

* After that, a flat 15% tax for everybody.


Done and done.  Plays the same for every American.

And I wouldn’t have to spend two hours at the tax office the day after an SEC football coach got fired for a scandal.

Headlines are coming…

Yeah...most people don't support this plan. Mitt Romney has been walking around championing it, though.

It would blow a hole the size of Mars in the budget. 

 

Do you recognize that the average American annual income is just over $26,000? 

 

Stick to sports, at least there you sound like you know what you're talking about.

Great idea and would increase the tax rate of approximately 60% of the population. Would be a big decrease for high earners.  Everybody wants a simpler tax code but nobody ever wants to give up the attributes that positively affect their situation.

Agree wholeheartedly. A transparent and readily understandable tax code would empower citizens across this country. I doubt we'll ever see it in my lifetime but I can hope.

I could go along with that, but seeing as how now only 51% of America is actually paying Federal Income taxes that isn't in the books. Or look at it this way the 51% is keeping up the other 49%. Heavy tax burden isn't it?

Yeah... I haven't seen Romney talk about making the first $25-30,000 tax exempt, thus giving some protection to the underprivileged.

 

Then again, this was a throwaway time-killer blurb posted to let folks know that more SEC news was coming.  The fact that anyone got ticked over it just shows how touchy/angry/nuts we are as a society.

 

Thanks for reading,

John

What an ugly comment.  Especially considering I just discussed that plan with one of the top five tax experts in my state, a person who writes a leading tax blog for one of the nation's top political parties.

 

So why don't you just stick to posting angry, nasty comments anonymously on a site that provides you information for free.  That'll let everyone know what a miserable dip you must be.

 

Wow.  I come back and try to get stuff on the site as quickly as possible and some schmuck gets angry over a time-killing explanation.

 

God bless the people around you because if you're this big a jerk online, you must be a real joy in person.

 @John at MrSEC Let me guess which "leading party" that would have been.  Does it start with an "R" and rhyme with share a mascot with Alabama?  I though so. 

 

Keep your political views off of the site, please.  Nothing kills a conversation quicker than discussions about politics and religion, and guess which one you just spoke about?  (I'll give you hint, it starts with the letter "p.")

I posted a quick time-killing blurb.  You are the ONLY person to get mad and rant about it.

 

Seems the problem is with you.

 

Pure.  Simple.

 @kaput  @John As opposed to what women can and can't do with their bodies and  who can and can't get married?  Sense of entitlement?  WTF? 

 

Politics and sports simply don't mix well on a site like this.  Pure.  Simple.

 @John at MrSEC A flat tax is regressive, and is not in any way a centrist idea.

Apparently you've never heard of the terms "moderate" or "centrist."  

 

Thank God, both parties have a few of them.

 @John at MrSEC A flat tax rate is the "R's" wet dream.  No Democrat could win a primary with a position that called for a flat tax rate, and if you know anything at all about politics you know that.  This is basic modern American politics. 

 

I'm calling bull spit on that one.

And again -- not surprisingly -- you're wrong.  My tax person actually handles the blog of a left-leaning tax think tank... though that has absolutely nothing to do with me favoring a flat tax or with my own political leanings.  

 

Interestingly, I've been called both a danged liberal and a dang conservative on this site.  Of course, I've also been called a fan AND a hater of every current SEC school.  So maybe I just call it like I see it and it's your biases that are putting a skew on things.

@kaput @John at MrSEC Let me guess which political party you belong to, would it be the one that presumes to tell private citizens what can and can’t do with their personal property? John created this site and put a lot of time and effort into launching, maintaining, and improving it. Your sense of entitlement while contributing nothing reminds me a lot of the worthless aspects of our society that are far too prominent these days. Is this your “Occupy Mr.SEC” movement?
