Thread: We are the highest taxed nation-Donald Trump

  1. #21
    A "hypothetical". Let's just say..for the sake of argument and example...a small engineering firm, an "S" corporation, in sothin Merlin grosses 2 million a year. Let's say they make a modest 15% net profit on those sales. That's $300,000. Further, let's say the owner of the company also owns the building that the company operates in and thus is paid a - paltry and below average in this case - $25,000 in annual lease payments for a nearly 5000 sf engineering and production facility. And finally..because Uncle Same frowns mightily on him doing otherwise..said owner must pay himself a "fair and representative" salary over the course of any year. $100,000 only barely avoids the inquiry known as "The Business Audit". Of course DCAA has their fingers in all this too...because said company also works on gummint contracts.

    So..kiddies..let's do the math...clickety clickety ching ching..well..waddya know??!! The owner of said company has a gross income on his 1040 of $425,000. GTFO! Not only does that put him in some of the highest tax brackets and make him a permanent member of the "Top 1%"...it means he has a tax liability..Fed and state..that approaches 100 grand! I'd like to know...how many people like Sappy and Bacon pay 100 grand of taxes on 100 grand of gross personal income.

    Again..all stuff that Sappy his Antifa crew are oblivious of.
    Yeah. I'm just doubting a douche bag who spends ll his time on a tiny community forum boasting about his intelligence is in the top 1%. Btw is MD it's over $421,000 a year.

    And I haven't forgotten people on here know you in real life because you constantly bring it up. Which makes it even more impossible to believe the anger and filth you spew and then look some of these people in the eye

    I do just fine for myself and don't need to brag about it, particularly to people I don't know.
    You don't matter. You've failed at life.

    I have not.

    To be in the the top 1% of earners in the US, doesn't matter whether it is Maryland or Mississippi....
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Baloney. The most meaningful measure is taxes paid as a percentage of GDP. As you can see from the graph below, the U.S. has the 4th lowest taxes of any major economy. (Only South Korea, Chile, and Mexico ranking lower.)
    And the wealthiest 1 percent in the U.S. pay the lowest taxes as a percent of their income and total wealth of any country anywhere – and lower than they’ve ever paid even in the U.S.
    Once again, Trump and the Republicans are dealing with a non-problem, while ignoring the biggest problems.
    Why would it be measured as a percentage of GDP instead of as a percentage of annual income? Basing it on GDP just allows you to subtract the bottom feeders.
