It takes me until the middle of March to pay my taxes to the federal government. I also pay 8.25% on the purchase price on everything I buy except groceries. That money goes to the state and local governments.

How many months pays for the war in Iraq alone?
I get punished by my government for not getting another woman pregnant and being trapped in a misirable marriage.
I am also punished by my government because I don't have an extra $700,000 in my bank to buy a house. That's the going price here in San Francisco.
We renters don't get a tax write off. Singles don't either even though we use the least amount of government services and generate the most tax revenue for the government.
It's social engineering through taxes!

I haven't taken the time to calculate it and don't really care. Reason is, I work for the county government but fall under state court regulations, effectively making me a state employee under AZ laws. Thus the state taxes I and others pay goe to paying my salary again.

I "break even" somewhere near mid-May. Funny, I draw a retirement check from the US Army, every month. The gross amount of annual Army retirement earnings for me is only $5000US (+/- a few $$) more a year than I pay in federal income tax. So therefore, I essentially pay myself my US Army retirement. How wrong is that!
