The number of people I have encountered in my life who would prefer to have their taxes NOT lowered I can count on one hand with some fingers left over. And I am a tax preparer for over 20 yrs so I have met a lot of people. This thread has increased the number of fingers 3fold. You people are weird.
For the record, lowering my income taxes =
Wanting to keep your taxes higher so that you hope that a poorly run, full of red tape government will take that money and use it to help the underprivileged or properly invest it in infrastructure that will improve the lives of whole community is a reach...at best. Take the increase in your income tax refund next year and go buy some coats to donate to your local homeless shelter. Or write a check and donate to your local rape crisis center. Or buy some dog food and donate to your local animal no kill shelter. Or buy some season tickets to your local theater to help fund some actors who have high dreams but really need to keep their jobs. The possibilities are endless.
