    Now she can plant $3B worth of money trees. Problem solved.

    Taxes

    I filed Thursday the 31st and the cash was in my account on Thursday the 7th. Not a bad turnaround.

    Gotcha. Unfortunately that doesn't help my friend.

    I'd also like to know how someone making $150K can pay zero. Asking for a friend.

    Taxes

    For the thousandth time...THAT DOES NOT MEAN HE PAID MORE IN TAXES! There is absolutely no way to know without seeing their return. Anyone who references the size of their return as a gauge to whether or not they paid more does not know what they are talking about. Show me someone who says their...

    I know, I had just never heard $100K referred to as upper class before. I can see where some people may think it is though.

    America is falling out of love with billionaires, and it’s about time

    Kind of unrelated, but since the term is used constantly on this board I just wanted to note that greed and envy was also likely a motivator for at least a few of those in the 95th percentile. For example, a brand new $400K Ferrari recently showed up in the parking lot at my office. Some will...

    How the hell was a refundable tax credit ever allowed to be claimed by someone without a SS number?

    Which is exactly why it will never happen.

    Taxes

    It's equivalent to someone going in to buy a car and they negotiate based on monthly payment only. Can't see the forest for the trees.

    Taxes

    Read the thread. Very few are actually paying more in taxes. Simpletons see a smaller refund check and automatically assume they paid more, but that's not necessarily true.

    Taxes

    Reading comments from some CPAs regarding their clients and the vast majority paid the same or less overall, as expected. SALT impacted some in high tax states and losing out on miscellaneous deductions like brokerage fees hurt others. In general though, the updated tax tables seem to have...

    Taxes

    And just to clarify, I don't know any of these people's personal tax situations. I only know my own. For the vast majority of people I'd expect all of the changes to be a wash at worst, but I have read about some that are worse off due to SALT being capped. That's the only legitimate complaint...
