Just did my taxes, and the Standard Deduction was cut in HALF compared to last year.
In other words, on my poor $14,000 I made last year, I owe tax, but not only that, my tax was TRIPLED!!!
Instead of owing a $100 something, I owe over $400.

So much for Obama claiming that he's only taxing the "rich".

BTW, when I've done my taxes previous years as a poor person making various amounts, the years I paid the LEAST amount of taxes or got the most money back, refunds, credits, etc. was when Republican's were in charge. In fact, the Bush years were wonderful.

Lying liberals.

LDSfaqs, did you miss the part about the Republican threat to close down the Government unless the rich received their continuing tax break? Are you now somehow saying Republicans are also advocates for the poor?

BTW, did you forget to itemize the propeller beanie as a journalistic expense? :biggrin:

Pull yourself up by your own boot straps. A real conservative wouldn't cry about paying some taxes. Go out and make more money. Your laziness is the only thing keeping you from becoming rich.

I recommend that instead of creating websites use that money to pay your taxes.

If your work is to the same standard as your apologetics you've been overpaid and under taxed...

I think it's awesome when a tax supporting socialist like Obiwan complains about taxes.

I made considerably more than that, and I got $3000 back from the government. The most I've ever gotten. :cool:

It looks like faqs either is mathematically incompetent, or he's lying. I'd vote for the former.

Or has changed his filing status from Married to Single. But worry not! I'm sure it's still Obama's fault.

Of course. Everything is Obama's fault. How can we fight against a man who manages to be simultaneously a Communist and a fascist, a Muslim and a radical "black Christian"? He exists in 12 dimensions simultaneously.

I actually don't like it when I get a refund. A tax refund only means that I have made an interest-free loan to the government. </wet blanket> :razz:

This year I am getting $3800 back which is paying for a trip Brazil. Last year I got $8k back.

I pay more in taxes than Ldsfaqs made in income..... By a considerable amount. He is either well below the poverty line, living on welfare, or sheltering his income through a corporation.

Try again..... You are wrong.
Although, I now know what might have happened. For some freak reason that didn't exist before, they may have changed the standard deduction between forms. I filed a EZ last year, while this year I filed a 1040. I used two different online filing services, but I wasn't given a choice the one I used this time which form I wanted to use. However, the standard deduction is NOT suppose to be different. One should be able to use whichever form one want's, but they must have changed them at some point in the past (not sure when), playing some con game. Note on the EZ form it now has a note that says a person may be able to get a larger deduction if they use a 1040. But clearly, it actually goes the other way. Although, depending on other deductions, the 1040 might give you a better rate. WHAT CRAP!!!

Anyway, I didn't lie.... See the pics for yourself.

Post subject:  Re: Just did my Taxes, and the POOR have been taxed!!!

All right.... Just did further research, and it looks like that even though the "deductions" are vastly different from each other, the actual "tax" rate, is the same, having been adjusted accordingly in their tax charts.

In otherwords, I still owe the same, no matter which form I use. Which is what I thought, but they do the deductions differently, which I suspect has to do with the 1040 because people that use those tend to add more deductions, so they do the formula different.

Anyway, so, it turns out I was partially mistaken in my judgment.
I fully admit when I'm wrong.

The liberals only "half lied". While they didn't actually increase the taxes of the poor as it first seemed, the poor are still getting taxed. Of course, they always have been when you're single and poor and make above a certain amount. When you're married and have kids, you get all kinds of credits and actually get money back.

Anyway, this has been a good example of how people can make improper judgments without full and proper research, by only looking at the obvious, as I've been telling you all. I only do my taxes once a year, and have usually used software, and rarely had to pay. So, that was an easy mistake. But you all have no excuse for the more serious issues, that you see often, and should realize that because you are focusing on the obvious, without fully researching, you are falsely judging the Church etc.

Anyway, I made a mistake this time.... When are you guys going to admit your mistakes???

Yup: the deduction listed on form 1040EZ combines the Standard Deduction and the Exemptions deduction used on the 1040. If you look at Line 42 on your 2011 1040, you'll see that your deductions for 2011 are $5800 (Line 40) plus $3700 (Line 42) for a total of $9500 (compared to $9350 for 2010). By the way, if you look at 2011's 1040EZ, you'll see that the deduction is (fanfare please) $9500.
