Yet another reason no one pays attention to what you have to say. I noticed you didn't have the balls to post your info. Good job there

oh wow it's a tax on the transfer of property? huh that's interesting. oh and there's a multimillion dollar exemption? wow it's almost as if the government doesn't tax people when they die because it's literally impossible for a dead person to pay taxes!

25%ish is where I expect to be.

25%? Is that your tax rate, or your tax bracket? Thats a very high effective tax rate.

yes it is. my wife and i had a very good year but my taxes are a complete clusterf*ck given that we're both freelance... I'm in the 33% bracket. I'll update once my accountant gets a crack at the insanity.

1) S

2) 0

3) 16.9%

And Mitt pays 14% after it has already been taxed. Just like we pay additional taxes after we die, when we buy product off the shelf, as a service, etc. If people knew what we actually paid in taxes, there would be outright riots in the streets. It is one of the main reasons I am for the Fair Tax.

Good lord! H & R Block?

After ObamaCare my tax rate is now higher. Currently 1 of every $4 I make goes to the govmt. I guess I'm just not paying my fair share though.

    • Interesting insight into dietary habits. I find that after 8 years in Asia my tastes are varied and I've learned what I like but i can adapt too. As an example I deeply loathed boiled cabbage since the days of school dinners. However, Kimchi is an excellent way of making cabbage which I had always hated palatable. I can't forsake meat but I can control the amount and variety of it that I consume. I definitely believe personally, that dietary habits acquired as a younger man weren't sustainable as I moved into middle age. I eat lots of veggies and fruit (which is still better than processed sugar). I have never liked the texture of nuts but if i chop them fine and scatter them in a salad I don't notice them. I subscribe to the idea that a mixture of food groups is best. My advice is re-try foods that you previously avoided since your palate changes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/why-fermented-foods--sauerkraut-kimchi-and-yogurt--are-good-for-your-gut/2017/05/05/dd0c9a62-0e4a-11e7-9b0d-d27c98455440_story.html?tid=sm_fb&utm_term=.e08ddb81d322 I have many vegan friends in the UK and frankly their pallid unhealthy appearance despite vitamin supplements makes me highly dubious of it as a lifestyle. Maybe that's just an odd case or a uniquely English thing though.
