A VOLUNTARY CLINTON SURTAX hiker’s job still isn’t done. The IRS conveniently has a section devoted to “other taxes.”
These numbers are a bit more complicated here, since you’re supposed to fill out other forms which indicate the income upon which your tax liability is based. You don’t want the IRS to find an error and reduce your taxes accordingly.
So it will be hard to hike your Social Security taxes, since they are based on your declared income. Though if you inflated your alleged business earnings as previously instructed, that would certainly help.
But it shouldn’t be hard to add some “household employment taxes.” After all, if you’re a liberal you should be embarrassed at employing domestic help. Pony up some extra taxes for the privilege of hiring them.
Now it’s time to add everything up. How’d you do? Not enough of an increase? Go back to the beginning. Add a bit more capital gains, more speaking fees, and drop some deductions. It’s important to get your taxes back up to where they should be to send a message.
If all else fails, write Uncle Sam an extra check as a gift. But remember: Don’t take the deduction when you file next year. You owe the government the money.
Of course, it is most important that the Clintons themselves pay up. Many of us have long looked to them for leadership. They now have a chance to begin redressing the gross injustices of the Bush tax cuts.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
