36% down to flat 33% ?

Yes.     Charity?  Good point.  That make the world a better place live.  OK. 1 deduction.  Charity.

Capital investment.  No.  That 2 billions that Bezos walked off with?  That is his disposable income.

(net after taxes).  He has the 'discretion' to use it any way he sees fit.  He can invest all it, or none

of it.  At his discretion.  The 2 billion is also his discretionary income.

 

G.E. right now pays no taxes.  Their tax dept. has 975 tax lawyers and tax CPA's.  They have one job.

Manipulate the 78,000 page tax code so that G.E. pays no taxes.  My plan says one thing to G.E., 

Amazon, and Jeff Bezos.

Give the gov. 1/3 of your gross.  Then you walk on down the road and be happy with your 2/3's.                                        🍺

                                                               

 

 

1/3 of gross profits, not gross income.

That's a pretty modest raise-up, considering the circumstances !

 

My business' rates went up 35% because of the corona crisis !

 

Being a Public Relation Consultant gives you some leverage,  you know !

Point 1:  No complaints...they were already expensive BUT it is a nice relaxed place, has great food and most of the staff are friendly Chicanos.*

 

Point 2:  I hope 10% of that is extra...that you tell your clients is because of the kung flu.

 

* Chicano is a racial slur to ultraliberals...to everyone else it is a Mexican-American born in the USA. In other words most of the staff speak perfect English.

MrJelly...thank you for not shunning me BUT I do not understand your question.

 

Just the same I wish you would just keep me on shun.

 

For anyone else interested...unlike exman I will not go to wikipedia preferred by 9 out of 10 hacks.

 

Encyclopedia Britannica:

 

Chicano, feminine form Chicana, identifier for people of Mexican descent born in the United States.

 

The term came into popular use by Mexican Americans as a symbol of pride during the Chicano Movement of the 1960s.

Negative.

I  was just thinking federal.  

I guess we all have a flat sales tax.

TN, TX, and several other states do not have state tax.  CA & NY have very high state taxes.                  🍺

"Negative" what?  Federal is National.  What %?

Good question.

That is worth thinking about.

How about--

1.  The poor                         =  $30,000/yr. or less.

2.  The middle-class          =  $30,000--$150,000.

3.  The upper-class           =   above $150,000.

 

Example--if Jeff Bezos make 3 billion this year, then he writes a check to the IRS for 1 billion.

Then he walks down the road, and lives happily with 2 billion.

Does that sound fair?

1 thing that doesn't sound fair is that you think it fair than some1 paid $151k should be in the same tax bracket as some1 paid $350M.   Why not some tax brackets in between?

The rich don't skate. Either they pay 1/3.... or their company pays 1/3.    Same amount of money to the IRS.

 

The poor pay sales tax on everything they buy.  And save 20% of their paycheck.....for their own benefit.  

This give them a chance to build and become prosperous.

 

The mid-class pays between 10-20% depending on how they work the deductions.

 

What is wrong?    Are you mid-class?   Don't you think at least 10% is fair?     What do you want to pay?                            🍸

You say the poor would pay a National(?) Sales Tax?  How about the middle class & richest?  & what would that rate be? & would it include food?

Chicano is not a slur to Chicanos, you ignorant dolt. I can attest to this as a proud graduate of New Mexico State University. Go Aggies!

There is no such thing as an "ultraliberal".

1.  The poor, under $30,000, pay sales tax on every thing they buy.  So does every one.  If homeless man buys bottle of M/D 2020,

      then there a sales tax on that bottle of cheap wine.  That money supports the local gov.  Most sales tax are 7-10%.

2.  10% with-holding for Social Security.   This is for the benefit of that individual.

3.  10% with-holding for his 401k Saving Plan.  This makes the individual grow rich and prosperous.

 

That leaves the individual with 80% disposable income. 

And that person has the 'discretion' to spend it anyway he choses.           🍺

Brackets are OK.

I think we have 7 now.

I was striving for simplicity, so that every person knows where he stands.

WRONG!

Tennessee has a 5% State Sales Tax

Texas has a 6.25% State Sales Tax.

Five states have no state sales tax: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon.

=======================

I get criticized for looking stuff up, and I ask you: which is better, to post actual facts or to post crap that is simply untrue?

Not to defend supra, but I am sure she was referring to state INCOME tax.

I try my best not to be a weirdo and post spiteful things BUT you are a FKn cyber weirdo. The question is...are you that way in real time.

 

I never said Chicano was a slur to Chicanos...you nit wit.

 

And this correcting me on my Spanish post...what kind of a jerk off R U; that you have to go around and correct posters on message boards ?

 

It was meant as a lightheart jab at my ultraliberal sparring partner (who I say it to in English)...it wasn't a translation for a Spic murder case.

The fewer the tax brackets, the FLATTER the taxes, & the more injustice, as the tax BURDEN is shifted towards the bottom & away from tbe top.

So, no Federal Sales Tax?  That's good, because Sales Taxes are FLAT taxes that penalize the poor & middle class MEGA TIMES MORE than the ELITELY paid.  Or are you saying there should be a Federal (National) Sales Tax on the poor only, in addition to whatever FLAT Sales Tax the states have?
