Taxes: Silly, Stupid – And Unfair

Taxes: Silly, Stupid – And Unfair

I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which was named a disaster area for taxes purposes so that four letter word Irma at least meant you can deduct any losses from the storm that were uninsured. And there were plenty for me and my damage was light: fences, lost landscaping that had to be hauled away, a leak in the roof not covered under the high hurricane deductibles… okay, but the instructions for completing the essentially one page Form 4068 are six pages long? Does that make any sense to you?

Or how about school tax which represents the bulk of your real estate taxes that we gay people who don’t have kids, which means the vast majority of us, have paid like forever? Even str8 couples l know who fuked and made babies complain why they have to continue to pay school tax long after their kids are gone and they’re retired.

I have Turbo Tax that l’ve used for decades – very user friendly – and as a favor l did the very uncomplicated taxes for one of the security guards at the Ramrod, our leather bar and the most happennist place in town for the over 40 male. Retired from PA, he makes barely poverty level, just over twenty thousand, yet had to pay $600 in taxes. Does that make any sense to you?

And you think the average American, and that means 99% of us, is going to benefit from Trump’s new tax plan?

Don’t bet on it.
