I pay my fair share of taxes but I hate when the governments nickel and dime a guy. The family tax cut has been eliminated in 2016 - lost $2000 income tax because I don't income share with my wife and the support for my family comes from me. When I filed my 2015 taxes, they took it away already and told me I owe them $2000. So I fought that as soon as I got my tax return back because I qualify. I am not an absentee husband or a spouse that is in jail etc. etc. They sent me several notices that I owe them this $2000. Finally got it settled Oct 14 and they credited it back to me. However I now owe them $2.86. I should bill them for my time having to fight my case with them, stamps and everything else. Why they thought they could get away with this, I will never know. I use Turbo Tax program. They said send me the pages from its calculation and they will have a look at it! They couldn't make any sort of judgment on the spot as an error and kept me in limbo from May (when I got my tax return back) until October!
Meanwhile I wasn't sure how things would turn out so I complied and paid them $2000 and the interest that I apparently owed them - $56.00 or so. What a system our countries have - you can't win for losing! I would look forward to Trump simplifying the tax code and making everybody pay something.
It is not What you know, it is WHO you know that counts! Currency is a UNIT of debt - not value!
