Maybe I should start a new thread to draw more attention? Or, is there a thread specifically for this?

My account told me a long time ago I don't need him.
Before I opened my own business I did my own taxes. Government employees are typically simple tax returns.

Voted.  :)
You should perhaps consider editing the poll to allow a change of vote. (Let's say, once I find out.)

I have no problem paying more. The problem I have with the bill is the massive giveaway to the few at the top and corporations. I am just a blue collar worker  that understands when a bill cost 1.5 trillion someone has to pay the bill. As always it will be on the backs of the middle class.

How about you, up or down?
So why don't you?

Aren't there some things on the return you can check which will allow you to pay more?

As long as we have income taxes there will be winners and losers, it's one of the biggest sources of power and target of lobbying in DC.

I have no clue which way my taxes will go (nor do I know what they might be this year, I'm actually contemplating whether I should defer some income into 2018 or not - I am guessing that the cost of thinking about it is greater than any potential benefit, I'll just focus on my work).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not quite sure. Try to delete all the data you entered into the lines.

If it would be on the backs of the middle class then it wouldn't cost 1.5 trillion, it costs that much because the gov is paying for it.

So why don't you?
Because I give it to my local church. Makes no sense just to pay more when it goes to those who don't need it.

It was you who said:
I have no problem paying more.

I do have a problem paying more to a corrupt, bloated, and inefficient government (but right now that's the best we have so I guess we have to pay something. I would much rather see a more efficient and fair tax regime based on consumption rather than income).

Same place they had it from since the last time there was a surplus/balanced budget.

That would never be possible.

IINM India just made a major change in that direction.
