This is non-political.

I did my taxes today. I was expecting a big increase in what we owe . The 2018 tax code change capped real estate and state taxes dections combined at $10,000. I live in high property tax NH with a cabin in VT. I knew the tax changes would affect us. Such is life.

What fries my butt??? With out these itemized deductions I did not pay my "fair share" throughout the year. The amount I owe is larger than the IRS likes. So they hit me with an "under payment penalty". Really - after they changed the freaking rules mid-stream????

And people wonder why I own a foil hat and hate the government Smile

And will stay non political.

Lots of us also understand the foil hat and dislike/distrust of the go'vermin (emphasis on the 'vermin') as it has evolved into a huge bureaucracy of unelected officials with power to screw us over. The government wasn't originally designed to allow anyone who wasn't from the masses (House of Representatives) to have power to make laws and thereby screw us over, but it has turned into that.

Cheer up, the census is coming soon where they will ask all sorts of personal questions and not merely take a head count (census). I give them the headcount and nothing more since that's all a census is. When they come to the door months later they threaten me. I kick them off my land. Let's see, "Do this or I'll do this to you", and all without pay. Just what is the definition of slavery? I let them know point blank that I'm, "not their slave and go take a hike". After a few years their threatening letters stop. But it's about ready to begin again.

They made me start filing quarterly for the same reason. Stinking govt runs huge deficits and hammers me because although they always get their full cut, they want to get it sooner. I'm making a foil Hard Hat.

What's that expression. 'Pay me now, or pay me later. It's up to you.'  Angry

Something like that.
