Default TAXES -- a thriving economy, but, NOT for us, but, for WHO ???

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears..

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me
To my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It’s time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
& our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt,
had a large middle class,
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened?

Can you spell 'politicians?'

And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?

As a corporate tax accountant I would have to agree with Troy Camplin. Ultimately, corporations are run for profit, after tax profit. period. To a corporation taxes are just another "expense". I can confidently say that the W-2 wage earner is taxed a the highest "effective rate"

Take a $100...
I have $100 to pay you for a days work.
Now, I have to pay employer FICA so I will offer you $92.89
($100/1.0765) because 92.89 + 7.65% FICA = $100 what I have to spend

So you get $92.89 but you have employee FICA taken out at 7.65% leaving you with $85.78 ($92.89 x 92.85%)

Next comes the Federal Income Tax and we'll just stay conservative with 15% tax bracket. Now remember it's 15% of you $92.89 (yes, they effectively tax you on your FICA tax) so now you have roughly $71.85

Now if you live in in a State that assess a state income tax (only 7 states have no income tax) like Oregon set at 9% (of $92.89 = $8.36) so now you have $63.49.

Now say you go an buy a carton of cigarettes with your money, that's what I just did yesterday and it was right around $60. The tax in Oregon is currently $1.18 pack or $11.80 per carton.

I have now received $51.69 benefit in exchange for my $100 worth of labor.

Any questions... send them to

OPPS; and, he forget this !!!

theban said...
Oh... I forgot to account for the other employer taxes that I would have to deduct first....
FUTA at 0.8% (Federal Unemployment) They extend benefits...
FICA (already included)
State Unenjoyment (usually 1%-2%)
Workers Comp "insurance" I've seen as high as 16% but ...

You get the idea...
eventually you end up paying, directly or indirectly, about 60%-70% in taxes.

Now you know why I chose to become a tax accountant.

Someone once said..
The rich don't get rich by making money....
the rich get rich by not paying taxes.

In New Zealand 4years ago , they tried to introduce Fart Tax...yes thats right, Fart tax, as in, expelled methane from ones behind.

This was actually called Fart Tax.

In this case it was targeted at the Farmers due to the Methane gas produced from Dairy Cows, Sheep stations...

After vigarous protest from Farmers it was dropped...as in poop, before the s**t hit the fan...

Peace always

Did you know that if the new "harmonized" sales tax goes through, this is what the the percentage of the **Government's share of our income will be.
This is why I signed the petition below... the link in red at bottom of this email allows you to have your say.


It's your chance to speak up. "Dalton McGuinty claims no one is complaining about his unfair tax grab" !


If the Ontario Government gets away with implementing their new harmonized GST/PST sales tax of 13%, the top effective income tax rates in Ontario will be as follows (since you can't spend any of your tax paid dollars without paying the new harmonized 13% GST/PST tax):

** They will take 38% of the first $20,000
53% of the next $40,000
59.5% on every dollar over $60,000



Subject: Ontario 's New 13% Harmonized Sales Ta

x - What It Will Mean To You


Next summer (2010) the Ontario Government is set to put into force its new harmonized GST/PST sales tax which will apply a 13% sales tax to everything we purchase.

Things That Were Not Subject To The Current 8% PST Will Be Now Taxed
As a result, things that were not previously taxed under the current Ontario Provincial Sales Tax (PST) will be taxed at 8%.

The new 13% tax will therefore apply to things like your electric bill, your gas bill, your water bill, condominium fees, insurance premiums, and every other good and service you purchase. There are almost no exemptions.

The current Ontario PST tax does not apply to services, nor does it apply to the purchase of certain goods. The new 13% tax will therefore extend the old 8% PST tax rate to the purchase of all goods and all services.

The New 13% Tax Will Apply To The Puchase of All New Homes
The new harmonized GST/PST will also apply to all purchases of all new homes.. If a person were to purchase a new $1 million dollar home in Toronto , they would have to pay roughly $200,000 in taxes as a result of the Ontario land transfer tax, the new city of toronto land transfer tax, and the new harmonized 13% GST/PST.

Think about that and what that would do to real estate values in Toronto .

It will cause property values to fall and kill the new home construction industry and the jobs it creates.

And it won't be long before you'll hear our elected representatives telling us that, because of the harm that has been inflicted to the new home construction industry by the new 13% tax, it would be "fair" to extend the new 13% tax to sales of existing homes.

The New 13% Tax Is An Assault On Your Primary Residence
Canadians have had two things that they have always been able to count on as being tax free - things that they could use to save money and accumulate wealth. They are your: (a) primary home; and (b) RRSP. That's it.

The extension of the new 13% GST/PST to homes is simply a tax assault by the government on your primary home. They want to tax your primary home and you will suffer because of it.

Why? Because if a purchaser has to pay almost $200,000 in taxes to buy your $1 million dollar home, the purchaser is going to pay less to you for your home. The purchaser will reduce the amount he or she is willing to pay to you in order to pay all the taxes.

The New 13% Tax Will Effectively Raise Your Income Taxes
Currently, the combined Federal/Ontario income tax rates are roughly 25% on the first $20,000 of taxable income, 42% on the next $40,000 of taxable income, and 46.5% on each dollar of taxable income over $60,000. On top of that you have to add the "Fair Share Health Tax" of up to $1,000 each of us has to pay.

If the Ontario Government gets away with implementing their new harmonized GST/PST sales tax of 13%, the top effective income tax rates in Ontario will be as follows (since you can't spend any of your tax paid dollars without paying the new harmonized 13% GST/PST tax):

38% on the first $20,000
53% on the next $40,000
59.5% on every dollar over $60,000

On top of that, you have to pay your Ontario Fair Share Health Tax, your city realty taxes, your city garbage fees, your city water fees, your city street parking permit fees, your annual Ontario and new city of toronto vehicle license plate fees, your Ontario land transfer tax, your new city of toronto land transfer tax, your gasoline taxes, your liquor taxes, your air departure taxes, your entertainment taxes, and so on.

OF ALL THE MONEY YOU WORKED HARD TO EARN, WHAT PERCENTAGE ARE YOU REALLY KEEPING FOR YOUR OWN USE? 25%? 20%? 10%?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - FIGHT BACK
THIS HAS GOT TO STOP HERE OR WE WILL ALL SOON BE WORKING FULL TIME FOR THE VARIOUS LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT IN ONTARIO .

YOU CAN ALREADY SEE HOW ARE LIFESTYLES ARE DECLINING BECAUSE OF THE ENORMOUS TAX LOAD WE BEAR.

AS A RESULT, I URGE YOU TO TAKE THIS ISSUE SERIOUSLY AND TO FILL AND AND SIGN THE PETITION AT www.unfairtaxgrab.com AGAINST THE NEW HARMONIZED GST/PST TAX SET OUT BELOW.

I WOULD ALSO ASK YOU TO SEND THIS E-MAIL ON TO OTHERS THAT YOU KNOW AND ASK THEM TO DO THE SAME.

IF WE DON'T WORK TOGETHER ON THIS ISSUE THE NEW HARMONIZED 13% SALES TAX WILL BECOME A REALITY NEXT SUMMER.

THANK YOU.

Thousands say "no" to the HST


Dalton McGuinty claims “no one is complaining” about his unfair tax grab. You proved him wrong recently.... a request was sent asking you to send a message to the McGuinty Government about the HST. Almost instantly our email box began to fill. By the end of the day we’d received nearly 2,000 messages.


New Democrat Members of Provincial Parliament did their best to read them into the record in the Legislature, but they simply ran out of time. The good news is: there are more debates to come and we’ll be sending you details about how to keep up the fight against this unfair tax grab. In the meantime, you can read a transcript of the debate here .


Together we can stop the HST.


PS - Urge your friends, family and other concerned citizens to sign the petition at www.unfairtaxgrab.com . Join the Facebook fight back here
