Democrat endless taxation coming home to roost. Fun nugget in the article is that some people who are being taxed to the hilt say they might be able to put up with it IF they saw value for their tax payments, but their states are the most broke-down and F'd up states in the country lol. Better wake up dewillie/fresh/kazoo, the end is near for your socialist nightmare.





"States with high taxes are at risk of losing people, business and money. In fact, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore argue that up to 1.3 million people will leave California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota and New York over the next three years and move to states with lower taxes.

The sweeping overhaul of the federal tax code passed by the Republican-controlled Congress and signed into law by President Trump in December has left both residents and elected officials from high-tax states in a precarious position.

With state deductions now capped at $10,000, the cost of living in states such as California and New York – where state taxes are notoriously high – is increasing substantially. This has the potential to lead both middle-class families, and even the wealthy, to begin questioning whether it is time to move to a more tax-friendly state.
 

This means potentially bad news for Democrats, as solid blue states are generally those with the highest state taxes. If they lose enough people, these states will eventually get fewer seats in the House of Representatives and fewer votes in the Electoral College, which determines who is elected as president."

I always have questioned why citizens of a state with high state income taxes were able to deduct their state taxes from their Federal income tax. Why should other states fund failing Socialists states? If your state is a high tax state, and you can't afford to live there under the new tax code, then move away. Let the Socialists states suffer the representation they elected. Why should all the other states subsidize them?

Woody and Early, that's why Duaine did all that whining that he's famous for. He couldn't explain why he should be able to deduct state income tax at our expense. One of the great accomplishments of the tax cuts. MAGA for life

Yes it is one of the great accomplishments of the tax cuts. And yep, it was ridiculous that states could subsidize their exorbitant state taxes by letting us write them off via federal returns. Made no sense at all.  Now the bogus subsidies are gone, and reality is creeping in to the sane folks who are stuck behind libtard lines like me and pabar and spaz.

I think of myself as an in place spy.  The most dangerous of resistances.  Super expendable.  I can guarantee many will go down when they come to get me, and after their done they will be more so confused, disoriented and demoralized there will just not be that much fight left in them.

Another promise kept. Now build that F'ng WALL.





"Economist Peter Morici thinks Democrats are lucky that tax filing day doesn't come before November's midterm elections.

As they worked on tax reform, Republicans had promised to make the filing process clearer and simpler for Americans, so much so that the 1040 form, the basic tax-filing document, would be the size of a postcard.

“Next week we will be unveiling the new 1040, and it will be a postcard as we promised,” Mnuchin said last Wednesday during a press conference celebrating the six-month anniversary of the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. “Hardworking taxpayers won’t have to spend nearly as much time filling out their taxes.”

Morici said many taxpayers will find filling out the postcard form much easier, because they can simply take the new larger standard deduction instead of itemizing their deductions.

"You won't have to go to H&R Block to do your taxes, you won't have to keep mountains of records," Morici said. "All you're gonna need is this tax form -- the statement you get from your employer every year. You fill out the boxes and bingo, you're out the door. We're talking about something that takes half an hour."

He said the tax reform bill and the simplified filing process will make April 15 -- the day on which individual income tax returns are due -- "palatable" for Americans.

"The Democrats should thank their lucky stars that we're not filing on October 15, because then Donald Trump would be able to go on TV, along with Speaker Ryan, and say, 'Look what we gave you,'" Morici said."

Interesting read:



https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/supreme-court-janus-union-dues-political-speech-first-amendment/



Throughout the debate, big public-sector unions insisted that those forced dues were perfectly reasonable. Since nonunion members also benefited from union collective bargaining deals with state and local governments, it made sense for them to cover their share of those collective bargaining costs. The unions called it "fair share" fees.

None of those forced dues, unions emphatically stated, went to political causes, so there was no free-speech violation.

"The simple truth is that no one is forced to join a union and no one is forced to pay any fees that go to politics or political candidates. That is already the law of the land," is how the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees put it.

But this week, the New York Times published a lengthy story explaining how the Janus decision will not only hit public sector unions but "will also hit hard at a vast network of groups dedicated to advancing liberal policies and candidates."

These groups, the Times reports, got tens of millions of dollars from public sector unions — "funding now in jeopardy because of the prospective decline in union revenue."

The giant Service Employees International Union says it cut its budget by 30% on the assumption that the court would rule against the unions in the Janus case. The Times says it "had been talking with leaders of liberal groups for two years about how to offset the loss."

Public-union money accounted for up to 15% of the Economic Policy Institute's budget, the story notes. EPI puts out pro-union studies that the press then reports as credible research. Pro-immigrant group Mi Familia Vota was getting about $1 million a year from public unions. America Votes got $2 million in 2016.

So how is that — if none of the forced dues went to pay for anything other than collective bargaining — all these liberal activist groups are worried about having their gravy train cut off?

Surely the loss of those "fair share" fees would only come out of the unions' collective bargaining budget, not the massive amounts of money they spend supporting liberal groups and causes. Right?

Money Is Fungible

Unions might say that losing all that "fair share" money means they'll have to shift money from other activities to cover reduced collective bargaining dollars.

But that just underscores the fact that money is fungible. By forcing nonunion members to pay "fair share" fees, unions could free up substantial amounts of funds — that otherwise would have been spent on collective bargaining — to pay for political activism.

What's more, unions had fairly wide discretion over what counted as "collective bargaining," for which they could directly charge nonunion members.

A couple of years ago, the National Legal and Policy Center noted that unions, with the consent of the federal government's National Labor Relations Board, were "defining 'collective bargaining' so broadly as to include just about any activity as applicable."

Either way, there's no question that at least some of the forced dues that public sector workers had to pay ended up funding political groups, activities and policies that nonunion workers didn't agree with.

The fact that liberal groups are screaming about the loss of union money because of the Janus decision is simply more evidence that the court's ruling was exactly right.
