    "Hope so. You did sign those checks to the IRS the last couple years. The ones with the lower numbers than before, right?"

    Actually, my taxes (not tax RATE but taxes) have steadily gone up throughout the years, mainly because my salary has gone up.

    So yes, Pres. O cut taxes but that doesn't show up in withholding; what is changed is what my taxes would have been versus what I actually paid.

    Also, local taxes (e. g. real estate taxes) have gone up, up, up.  Of course Pres. O has zero to do with that; what they do around here is jack up your assessed value so they can raise taxes and claim that the rates haven't gone up.

    Yeah, the local government needs the revenue but actually raising tax rates (the more honest way) is politically toxic.
