Oh if you only knew how much I pay in taxes.
Still makes me sad at times.
You are correct... it's too much.
Edit: Oh what the hell I'll share with everyone. The government took about $36,000 from me last year. I'm in the 28% tax bracket.
I have a friend who makes around (this is just what she has told me before) $600,000 a year writing college textbooks and is in the %35 bracket. Do the math on how much she loses.
damn, $36,000 could of been a new car!
I think you get most of it back when you file taxes at the end of each year. I'm not %100 sure but that's how it works in Canada if your under 18.
thats what my dad told me. He said around april i get something called a tax return or something like that.
