Tax Shocker

By Giggy Ignati - Mar 20 2019
Read more
Heather Long's recent assertion that most people will be paying less in taxes - I want to see some real data to back that one up. I did my taxes. I live on a fixed income. My gross tax amount on the same level of income went up by 28%. That's not what was withheld. That is how much more in taxes I will be paying in 2018 than I did in 2017. Go check your data and get back to me.
