Greedy Dims never learn

California Democrats trying to raise cigarette tax

With their inability to be satisfied with only soaking nicotine addicts with 87 cents per pack of tax, the DemonRats want to tack on an additional $2.00 per pack.  The end result should be obvious to anyone who understands real world market forces, something Dim-witted politicians pretend don’t exist.  Smuggling of cigs from outside the PRC will become a booming business and the morons in Sacramento will receive zero dollars per pack.

Why the tax profession will never run out of business…

Posted by taxguru on April 15, 2015

With every year bringing new free tax services and DIY software, I have to reassure other tax pros that none of those can ever replace the knowledge and expertise of us, especially when our rulers are continuing to make everything more complicated.

It’s Tax-plicated: Complexity Rising with Obamacare Burden

I hate to keep repeating myself, but this is just like the poster I created decades ago, illustrating how “Tax Simplification” laws work in the real world after having been created by the insane morons in DC.

Posted by taxguru on April 11, 2015

As has been standard practice for several years, our top rulers in DC have revealed cleaned up copies of their personal income tax returns.  This year, this was done via the following blog post from the White House spokesman with the oxymoronic name, Josh Earnest.

Discussing our screwed up tax system

Posted by taxguru on April 9, 2015

PJ Media has posted this 24 minute panel discussion on the abhorrent state of our tax system, with the very accurate title of Death By Taxes: The US Income Tax Is Government Theft.

It’s the perfect thing to watch as the infamous Tax Day approaches in this country.

 

As always, the media are flooded with last minute tax tips. Here’s the best tip if your tax returns aren’t already finished.  Work with a professional tax practitioner and file an extension (Form 4868) that will give you six more months to properly prepare and file your tax returns.  Trying to rush things together at the last minute is a recipe for disaster, often with mistakes that can’t be undone later on.

IRS deadline extended for ObamaCare customers sent the wrong tax form – As I explained earlier, IRS is encouraging people who may have incorrect ObamaCare info to file for an extension (Form 4868) until October 15.  Hopefully, the correct data will be available by then.
