Re: When you taxes go up on January one 2011

Hey tomtoolbag, I'm a farmer so I have to say this quietly cause I don't want to get shot.  How about keeping a log and having a cost per mile rather than strait across depreciation.  You get to deduct what you actually use.  I have a part time job I get paid milage for and it is not that tough to keep a log, really quite simple.  I know what you mean about being too expensive for what I want to do with it.  I was hoping to buy a used pickup but too many have so many options added that they become a detriment instead of an asset.

I am for decreasing spending but we cannot agree on where yto make the cuts. Unfortunately "you folks" want to do the cutting where it will hurt the little people or those in need. We cannot agree on the function of government nor do I believe in starving government with deficits.

 

I beleive if you had a budget surplus today you would want to cut taxes to bring the budget into deficit. You prefer a government that favors business over all others. I believe in a government by the people of the people and for the people.

Of course if the budget was in surplus there should be a tax cut. Government should never be in surplus. Spend only what comes in, no more.

Re: When you taxes go up on January one 2011

  I see your point, and although I agree with you in the reasoning for it, in reality it is hard to police. Asking somebody to keep a logue of mileage and use, then who do they ask to verify it?? The same person that was forced to do the logue.

  Don't get me wrong, I think the allowance is a good thing, look at how it helps out farmers. But.......with a basically "free" vehicle(that money was going to the government anyway, with nothing to show for it but a receipt), people have a tendency to upgrade their purchase. I know of one contractor that I ran into boating that was showing off his new fully loaded dually truck and bragging that it was free, and when I went by his shop, I didn't see it, so I didn't stop. When I spoke with him at a contractors association meeting, I brought that up, and he told me "I only drive it to pull my boat and other things, because it costs too much to fill up".

  That was the problem with the Hummers, they met the weight requirement to qualify, but their use was just to provide transportation to and fro wherever. So, basically a business owner got a very expensive free vehicle at the expense of the taxpayers, and the Hummer sales confirmed it.

  Maybe just change the classification of truck, NO SUVs, so that the outcome of the sections results as it was intended, and also the use %. The tax forms already have compliance/affirmation by the signature on them. But, that is never checked either to see if people are out and out lying about the % of use.

So how do you plan to retire the debt without a surplus?

Don, you sound like the disclaimer statement for one of those pay-day loan shark companies.

Stop spending on new programs. Cut spending on existing programs. Then people and businesses will see government is trying to get the budget in order, they will start to take risks to promote job growth. That will mean more tax payers and the debt will start to get payed off. All done with not one tax increase.
