Yeah, I don't know anyone who refuses a new job or refuses to work overtime because of tax issues. All that shit is in the mind of economists, not real people with real lives.
I can assure you that occurs.
While a 3% increase isn't likely high enough to motivate/demotivate, when I started working in taxation the highest tax rate was 70% and when you get to that level many people find the extra effort for more just isn't worth it. Hehe, at one time the UK had rates above 100%, it definitely wasn't worth it
I don't understand the whole "tax scofflaw" thingy.
So the guy owes the state $1,800 or so. Big deal. You'd be amaxed at how many people owe the government for taxes, whether fed/state income or property taxes.
Does anybody here owe $1,800 on a credit card (or car loan)? What's the difference?
