 Quoting: Foolin


You really believe someone who made 20 million in a year actually takes the time to post this bullshit?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76844575


20 million? Try 3-4 million- short term capital gains in the top bracket.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77114938


HAAA HA HA HA HA, 'CAPITAL GAINS'

money you didn't EARN you lazy greedy asshole
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77361662


I think you have a limited understanding of the various types of things that the government considers capital gains. It’s too personal to detail here but suffice it to say this did not come from the stock market and I worked very hard for many years to earn that payout.

Why should I pay more in taxes this year than any of you will pay in your entire life? What do I get out of it? Do I get a rich person lane on the highway? Do I get 2 votes to cancel out one of you imbeciles? Do I get a special line at TSA?

All I see is you people whining about not getting a refund. GOOD! You bitches need to pay into the system.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77114938


Pay your share bitch. Who do you think you are, Donald?
You must have made $5,000,000.00 or more to owe that much.
Why you bitchin'? You didn't do all the work to earn it.
Probably some hedge fund, where people bet against the economy and then bitch it didn't fail enough to support their lifestyle.


Just think of all the men and women that are guarding our borders and our way of life. You wouldn't have that money if they were not protecting your ass from Commies.

Think of the taxes you pay as a hedge fund against Commies.


Go throw your money out a window, that will make me happy.
 Quoting: Lofty Elim


That’s kind of my point. The “rich” people like me get fucked in the, while those who are actually rich pay nothing in taxes.

The commies are already here. Look around!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77114938


Millions of folks across america work their ass off until they are 60 or older, never seeing more than 40k a year.

They work a lot harder than you too.

So why are your skills worth multi millions each year?

He doesn't have to pay taxes THEREFORE
I want to be like HIM, - NOT
Make him like me.

HOPE YOU LOSE IT ALL A HOLE
 Quoting: Foolin


Why? What's he done to you for you to want him to lose it all?
 Quoting: Jacek Coltutt


Why should one person be allowed to make millions of dollars every year?

I very highly doubt their "skill" will pay that much.

Most of the skill in a business is at the bottom, the ones who do the work and actually make the money.

Just because some guy invested money and took a risk on the backs of employees does not give him the right to make millions and millions of dollars each year.

I feel the same way about athletes celebrities, even big youtube people.

No one person needs that much money.

And it's usually luck that gets someone in that position.

Like I said they may have invested in a company and took a risk but at the end of the day it was a gamble, and thousands of people fail at it each year.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


I literally do the work and make the money. You can poll any of my 37 employees. They will tell you I work harder and produce more value than any of them.

I’m allowed to make millions per year because people voluntarily hand me their $ for a product that benefits them.

I bootstrapped my company- never accepted investment and always paid fair wages. My company benefits are the envy of all- salary, 4 weeks paid vacation, Cadillac insurance (medical vision and dental), 401k marching, work from home, monthly drunken outings.

Yes, I was very lucky. So what? I didn’t get to choose whether I was lucky or not.

I built my company with my bare hands. I lost the love of my life, most friends and health because I worked 80-100 hours per week for years and years. I was/am obesessed with my job and I’m scared that if I stop working as hard as I have been then i might have to lay off staff. I won’t let that happen.

Overall I think you have a jaded view of “rich” people. I’m not George Soros. I’m a MAGA lovin’ red blooded American who is pissed that we give “refunds” to millions of Americans while I’m paying in 37% and don’t get any free shit in return. We should all pay in so that we all have the same understanding of what’s happening in this country.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77114938


At some point the company ceases unless your kids take it over, and that rarely happens. Next CEO won't do it the same way you did, but what a generous gift.

That envy thing, of people paying less taxes? What do you want your legacy to be really?

How much did you make?

I supported a family of 4 on a bit less than 30k last year.

So how much did you make that you didn't need?

If I can support a family of 4 on that low of income, then that means anyone making more than me is making too much.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


So everyone should mimic your lifestyle or they're doing it wrong?

Seems a bit narcissistic to me...

What if someone is supporting a family of 4 on $25K per year...does that mean you're making to much and you should be taxed an additional $5K per year?
 Quoting: Callin


No I don't believe anyone should pay taxes that make less than 75k a year.

I didn't say everyone should live my lifestyle, I just said it's possible and millions of dollars a year to one person or one family is far too much.

So after making millions of dollars in a year and having to pay a bit less than 1 million in taxes this OP is an asshat.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668



So why would anyone put in the effort to start a business if all they could earn is $30k? If I made $30k working at McDonalds or $30k doing what I do, I would choose McDonalds.

Oh wait, but most jobs in the US come from small business owners? Huh.

If you do you are gullible.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


It's actually pretty common from the people I know.

My girlfriend, who is in customer service in the company she works for, received an $8.5K bonus in December as part of the company's profit sharing plan. She also received a total of $11.2K throughout the year in quarterly bonuses/profit sharing distributions.

I know quite a few people that have similar situations.

hey ac, seriously, I know people like you and the RVA area, and we know how things run. Do you feel any, lets say, guilt, or feeling bad about that much money? I could do that, I see the way people make the cash, and I am cool with people making it like that (and I am talking about sales dudes, etc. when you have to hustle to make that dolla...). I just feel like I am getting over on people when I get cash for stuff. Ok, let me try to explain, I help out my bro in law car repair shop with their pc's. I like going over and talking crap and learning about what they do... I usually fix whatever they have going on (stupid quickbooks btw, always seems to be having issues every 6 months or so...) and when I do fix anything either hardware related or whatever, they try to give me 100 bucks, I only took it 2 time (been over about half a dozen times to fix little things over the years...) and feel bad about it, I really don't want the cash, just like doing stuff like that in the off hours. I see what he makes, and damn, I told him he should adopt me :) but anyway, if you like doing stuff, how do you get over that feeling? I could easily get paid bank for helping people with insurance and easy software stuff, but I would feel guilty about taking cash for it. Like I said, I do like to smoke and think about this every once and a while lol

lol

That's not true at all.

I already did my taxes, and paid the $7 I owed, and my girlfriend already did her taxes and got back her $1375 refund direct deposited into her checking account.

Why? What's he done to you for you to want him to lose it all?
 Quoting: Jacek Coltutt


Why should one person be allowed to make millions of dollars every year?

I very highly doubt their "skill" will pay that much.

Most of the skill in a business is at the bottom, the ones who do the work and actually make the money.

Just because some guy invested money and took a risk on the backs of employees does not give him the right to make millions and millions of dollars each year.

I feel the same way about athletes celebrities, even big youtube people.

No one person needs that much money.

And it's usually luck that gets someone in that position.

Like I said they may have invested in a company and took a risk but at the end of the day it was a gamble, and thousands of people fail at it each year.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


I literally do the work and make the money. You can poll any of my 37 employees. They will tell you I work harder and produce more value than any of them.

I’m allowed to make millions per year because people voluntarily hand me their $ for a product that benefits them.

I bootstrapped my company- never accepted investment and always paid fair wages. My company benefits are the envy of all- salary, 4 weeks paid vacation, Cadillac insurance (medical vision and dental), 401k marching, work from home, monthly drunken outings.

Yes, I was very lucky. So what? I didn’t get to choose whether I was lucky or not.

I built my company with my bare hands. I lost the love of my life, most friends and health because I worked 80-100 hours per week for years and years. I was/am obesessed with my job and I’m scared that if I stop working as hard as I have been then i might have to lay off staff. I won’t let that happen.

Overall I think you have a jaded view of “rich” people. I’m not George Soros. I’m a MAGA lovin’ red blooded American who is pissed that we give “refunds” to millions of Americans while I’m paying in 37% and don’t get any free shit in return. We should all pay in so that we all have the same understanding of what’s happening in this country.

At some point the company ceases unless your kids take it over, and that rarely happens. Next CEO won't do it the same way you did, but what a generous gift.

That envy thing, of people paying less taxes? What do you want your legacy to be really?
 Quoting: MissCleo


You’re mistaken. I’m not envious of those paying less taxes. I think it’s a disservice to tax some less while others more. It distorts their perception of what’s happening.

What OP is not telling you is he/she/it takes advantage of every legality or loophole in the tax code to owe as little as possible.......you know, kind of like every one else is doing...so what is the problem?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74989850


I don't know what this op's problem is.

He should be grateful to be so lucky to make that kind of money.

People work twice as hard as him all year long and only make a fraction of what he makes.

Congrats on being successful, contrary to what president Trump said in the SOTU speech we live in a partially socialist country. The chances of that changing anytime soon are zero, in fact you will be paying more rather than less.

Pay your share bitch. Who do you think you are, Donald?
You must have made $5,000,000.00 or more to owe that much.
Why you bitchin'? You didn't do all the work to earn it.
Probably some hedge fund, where people bet against the economy and then bitch it didn't fail enough to support their lifestyle.


Just think of all the men and women that are guarding our borders and our way of life. You wouldn't have that money if they were not protecting your ass from Commies.

Think of the taxes you pay as a hedge fund against Commies.


Go throw your money out a window, that will make me happy.
 Quoting: Lofty Elim


That’s kind of my point. The “rich” people like me get fucked in the, while those who are actually rich pay nothing in taxes.

The commies are already here. Look around!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77114938


Millions of folks across america work their ass off until they are 60 or older, never seeing more than 40k a year.

They work a lot harder than you too.

So why are your skills worth multi millions each year?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


You don’t know me, how hard I work or what my skills are. My skills enable ten thousand small business owners to work on average 5 hours less per week to run their business. That’s 5 more hours with their children and wives and husbands.

Re: I owe $973,822 to the IRS for 2018, and you want a refund? FUCK OFF
I wish I was paying that much in taxes this year, but not because I like taxes.

OP makes the point. How much is his "fair share"? He doesn't get special benefits for paying for everyone else's government programs.

BUT perhaps he should.

I actually believe too many people are granted the right to vote; or said another way, the votes are inequitably distributed. The person who gets EITC has the same vote as the person giving up the money to pay those EITC. Something seems a bit off there, no.

How about this one, the renter has the same vote as the guy who owns the mansion, ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem except when it comes time to vote for property tax increases, the two will pay disproportionately despite the increase.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. I pay to fund schools that my kids DON'T go to. I'm paying for everyone else's kids! But it's okay. I do wish though that people would stop ripping others for not paying their fair share, when this is a canard at best.

More than likely that is bologna.

He says he employees basically secretaries you think a business owner is going to give out 10k in bonuses to basic labor workers?

If you do you are gullible.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42079668


It's actually pretty common from the people I know.

My girlfriend, who is in customer service in the company she works for, received an $8.5K bonus in December as part of the company's profit sharing plan. She also received a total of $11.2K throughout the year in quarterly bonuses/profit sharing distributions.

I know quite a few people that have similar situations.
 Quoting: Callin


I employ exactly 0 secretaries. I actually care about every single one of my employees and work hard to allow them to grow their skills and advance within our company and their career as a whole. I spend 4 hours per week with open office hours mentoring anyone who cares to ask.
