I know there will be some that claim the poor don't pay taxes, but remember all consumers pay taxes income tax is just a small part of the tax equation.

bobcatfan I checked into your 40% claim, there are a lot of variables like where you live, do you rent or own, your consumer habits and your income amongst many others, but on average, the actual number we pay in taxes is closer to 65% for the poor and 80% or higher for the wealthy.

Bobcat,and remember that visit that Kelly Clarkson made to our PROPERTY TAX FUNDED GENEAOLGICAL LIBRARY was totally funded by the landowner in Washington County.100% against the State Constitution of using funds derived from tax levy to support a private business entity(which she is) as all material derived in filming that day was copyrighted.This is just what we know about..thinkn a judge ought to stop this levy collection at once.

When does the government have enough? I'm not a farmer but I certainly pay property taxes and they are way too high. My bank account has had about all it can take with all these fees and taxes. Everything from your utilities, to sales taxes, property, income, ss and medicare, gas tax, and the list goes on and on. When 40% plus of one's income goes to pay taxes, something is wrong.
