  •  actually they usually add all the taxes together (0+ / 0-)

    tax protestors have no idea how much their federal taxes are, because they add in state taxes, local taxes, and even include FICA in their calculations.

    next month I will have to write some very large checks to pay my taxes and I earn considerably less than $50,000 a year.  My federal taxes, FICA (and I pay the whole 15% because I am technically self-employed) and state taxes together will be a five figure sum.  Paying taxes is definitely a hardship and I resent the fact that people who make more money than I do pay less in taxes than I do.

    But I'm not upset enough about my tax bill to give any credence to the anti-tax ravings of teabaggers.
