Death and Taxes

new-tax-form

Yup – it’s April 15th.  In the US, this is the deadline to declare to the Gov’t that you’ve earned this much money last year, and through various loopholes, deductions, and laundering schemes, this is how much you have to give to the Gov’t to keep the country moving.

Somehow – I think the country would move a lot better if we didn’t have to spend so much time and effort trying to avoid paying taxes.  The list of deductions is impressive, indeed, and gets longer each year.

Are taxes necessary?  Unfortunately, I think they are.  They pay for schools, streets, sewers, police and fire protection, etc…

But what the US tax system has evolved into is taxes and spending of said monies without any accountability whatsoever.

Time to change out the system.

  1. They know exaxtly how much you make … they know almost everything. As soon as we are only allowed to pay by card and not with cash anymore, they will know exactly how much you have spent on what and there’ll be no need for anybody to fill in any of these forms anymore. And I don’t think we’re far removed from that day. Keep on blogging in a free world – The False Prophet
