IMO, the lying, dishonest dems...the lying, dishonest msm...and the lying dishonest trump-haters don't leave him much choice.Yes. And I really wish he would stop. But that ain't gonna happen.
I would have to assume I paid less, because nothing else has changed. Changed mine to married at the single rate. Will see how that goes next year.Dollars, not exemptions!
i didn't change my withholding, but paid about $50 less of my check every 2 weeks to taxes.
compare your pay stubs from 2018 to your pay stubs for 2017...
So I assume you have vetted all these middle class people bitching on Twitter and they are all actually middle class for their area?Around here I would consider a household middle class if the income was between 55-150ish.....it varies though based on the COL of the given area.....150k here is a lot though its getting not to be, in Raleigh not so much.....
No of course not.....none of that matters though man. People as a rule do not understand the tax code or withholding rules etc...they know that money is withheld and then after they file their taxes at the end of the year they get some back usually, they didnt change anything from last year and now either get much lower refunds or owe money in.... this is running counter to what most of them expected. I was just pointing out that a lot of people are saying the same thing about their experience doing their taxes this year.....So I assume you have vetted all these middle class people bitching on Twitter and they are all actually middle class for their area?
You read to much into what I am saying.....no where did I imply everyone in the middle class was getting smaller returns or having to owe after never having to owe before....only that the ones that are saying that they are, are middle class. In fact I say numerous times that there could be tons of middle class people thrilled with the tax cut they got.....so I am not sure what fallacy I am asserting. All I am saying is there is a lot of people mostly claiming to be middle class fussing they got little to no return or actually owe money, after making no changes and having the same income as last year.You were making a claim about a segment of the population based off Twitter. I was pointing out the falicy in your assertion.
I have very little faith in the collective intelligence of people in general. However, I believe you are over generalizing based on a small loud sampling that is the definition of non scientific, and you are assuming since they identify as middle class that they really are.. while it might be a valid data point in some respects it is far from conclusive.
Hey Rem, just got my stuff back from the accountant. Tax rate is 13.7% of my adjusted gross. (that of course factors out all the tax deferred savings as I will pay the tax on that when i use it) The 2017 returns were not in the file cabinet as the wife had them out for the girl child to use for scholarship applications but looking back at previous years we have been in and around the 14 to 15% range.. small savings from last year but we put more money into 401K savings plans last year too..Are we just talking Federal or all taxes?
Anyone care to say their percenrage?
Just curious what % most folks pay.

glad you posted that cause that was our situation as well and we just thought that was too good to be true.Our taxable income increased and we paid less in taxes. Thank you, President Trump. The only 'problem' was that it sneaked up on us and we under withheld, so we had to write a couple checks.
