What's worse is it sounds like it was pushed by the big-chain retail and fast food lobby...
Tax credits are not taxpayers paying for something. It's someone being allowed to keep more of their own money.
Holy shit that is fucked up.
The minimum wage workers are likely going up a tax bracket, so they'll pay more taxes, while the multi-billion dollar companies will get credits. Fucking liberals are retarded.
They always do.
Minimum wage isn't enough to even pay income tax. That won't change.
But still, in the end the cost of any program is borne by the taxpayer.
Give tax credits, the government gets less from them so they'll get it somewhere else.
It's all bullshit.
Since when? I paid state and federal taxes while I worked a minimum wage job in HS. Wasn't much, but they still took a percentage.
And you got them all back (plus some if you got the EIC) at the end of the year.
Complicated taxes benefit the guy who can afford to have their own full-time accountants and tax attorneys.
Poor people deserve to live too.
Um, no. As I recall, on my earliest tax returns I only got back a few hundred bucks. Even earning minimum wage, I paid out way more than that in federal & state withholding.
Not to mention if you're a student living at home, your parents are probably going to claim you on their return so you miss out on your standard deduction.
cuomo is running his own little fiefdom. That motherfucker needs to go. I don't care how, but just get rid of him
Payroll tax is a different story.
The only way you get out of paying federal taxes making minimum wage is if you work part time.
Which is why Obama's tax increase hurt the poor the most.
Tax the rich!
Fucking starving over here. Hey Earl, we got any pie back there?
Wouldn't you have paid a lot more taxes for 2008 than you would for 2012?
Edit: Just checked. Looks like it's about the same and slightly less for 2013. Don's wrong again.
We're talking about payroll taxes. Which you know damn well were cut after 2008 then raised when Obama got his second term. Payroll taxes are the only taxes poor people pay, and they went up.
Nice try. Did you think picking 2008 would distract us? Dishonest fuck.
No, dishonest fuck. We were taking about INCOME tax. The payroll tax thing got brought up on one of your classic backpedaling maneuvers. By YOU.
You really need to learn to read. You're making yourself look stupid.
Keep posting your retarded little pictures. You know what the fuck I was talking about.
Yep. The first of your erroneous statements:
