I know every year we all worry about paying our own taxes. But, I’d like to suggest you pay attention to who is not paying taxes.
There is a new report out by the Tax Policy Center that says 47% of all the households in America””71 million households””are paying zero federal income taxes this year. In fact, in some cases it’s worse than zero. Most of those low income households also qualify for all the social services that you fund and that you are not eligible for.
As you sit down for tax day, how does that make you feel? Maybe we should pay more attention to making sure that at least everybody contributes to the tax fund. And, that the top 10% of Americans don’t pay 73% of the taxes while the bottom 47% pay nothing.
