People got a break on withholding now having a fit because they aren’t getting a big refund. Maybe some grade school math would help…………….

I owe how much? Americans shocked by impact of new tax law

Wait, I owe the IRS?

The first tax filing season under the new federal tax law is proving to be surprising, confusing — and occasionally frightening — for some Americans, especially those accustomed to getting money back from the government.

Take Andy Kraft and Amy Elias of Portland, Oregon. The couple had grown comfortable getting a small refund each year, a few hundred dollars or more. Then they found out they owe $10,160 this year.

"I will never forget the moment, I thought 'We look good' and then we added in the next W-2 and my jaw hit the floor," Kraft said. "There was no way I wanted to believe that what I was looking at was accurate."

President Trump promised a reduction in taxes with the new law. And by most measures, the majority of Americans will see one. The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center projected the tax law would reduce individual income taxes by about $1,260 on average, although it benefits higher earners more.

$22 Trillion … and Counting

By: Dave Lavigne

February 2019

I realize I often quote a small handful of experts in this column, and certainly one of those is Jeffrey Gundlach of DoubleLine Capital sometimes referred to as “The Bond King”.  That is a little odd since bonds are certainly not my forte, however, many times I will read one of his interviews and think to myself, “that is exactly what I was thinking”, thus here we are because he did that again recently.

In an interview from just a few days ago, Gundlach expressed concerns over both growing corporate debt as well as the U.S. Government’s growing national debt, which recently topped $22 trillion… a new record that will certainly be broken the next time it is tallied.

As Gundlach and others have pointed out recently (but have been beating the drum about for some time now) the national debt is becoming the elephant in the room.  What is perhaps most alarming is the degree to which it has grown despite a now decade long expansion. Presumably, the debt situation should be more tenable when things are good because more people are working and contributing to the tax rolls, and by extension, fewer are utilizing government entitlements, which should mitigate outlays. It begs the question, which Gundlach essentially raised, if the national debt is increasing/accelerating during “good times” what is it going to do when things turn south?

As Gundlach opined:

“If we’re growing [debt] at 6% of GDP, which is what we’re really growing at in terms of national debt during fiscal 2018, during a 3% real economy, then what’s the debt going to grow by during a recession?” he said. “Well typically, the debt-to-GDP ratio goes up about four percentage points during a recession. So, it suggests the national debt would grow at around a 10% annual rate if we go into a normal average type of recession. That’s obviously a really big problem.”

So some people would have us tax the rich…..

Aren’t we there already?

To listen to the proponents of taxing the rich one would thing aliens dropped money into their bank accounts or they inherited it all from a rich uncle. The reality in our capitalist society, that is the most successful ever and contributes far more than anyone else to helping the impoverished globally, is that the freedom from over taxation and incentive for intelligent hard work can make you rich. That top 1 percent paying 37.3% of all income taxes support an enormous number of non-performers in our society already.

You would also think that these “Rich” simply have all these billions hidden under their bed. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Virtually all of it is invested one way or another.

You want to cry that the guy has too big a house or yacht etc. Did you forget that when they built that mega-house and yacht they employed workers who in turn fed their families. Oh yes and those same workers paid a (albeit much smaller %) in taxes as well. The rest of the money is invested in companies (either directly or through our stock markets) and commercial real estate and on and on that in turn employ tens of millions and or it has been lent through bonds and mortgages to other people building houses or businesses.

What those rich have in common, aside from the very few who inherited the money, is that they are very astute and understand how to invest the funds they have to create wealth, and in turn jobs and opportunities for the less fortunate or enlightened.

So why would we take that money away from them and give it to government to manage?

One of the most prominent of these new” tax the rich enlightened” has the career high point distinction of having worked at a restaurant during college.

She’s NOT the one I’m hiring as a money manager……….

 

Fox Business Feb 11-2019
Out of all of the hundreds of millions of taxpayers who file annually every year, new data shows the country’s wealthiest residents bear a sizable tax burden when compared with lower-earning payers.

According to data released recently by the Internal Revenue Service, compiled by the Tax Foundation, the bottom 50 percent of taxpayers paid about $43.9 billion in income taxes 2016– which accounts for roughly 3 percent of all income taxes paid.

The top 1 percent, on the other hand, accounted for about 37.3 percent of all income taxes paid during the same year.

“The 2016 IRS data shows that taxpayers with higher incomes pay much higher average income tax rates than lower-income taxpayers,” the Tax Foundation concluded.

Here’s a look at what the highest-earning Americans paid:
