Protect Your Wealth From the IRS, The Tax Window of Opportunity / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research writes: The biggest danger to your wealth isn’t a bubble in China or Europe – it’s the IRS. Since 1987, top earners have been taxed between 28 percent and 39.6 percent, a relatively low range compared to the 50-percent-and-above rates for most of the century. However, with enormous annual deficits and Social Security lurking around the corner like a mugger, the future promises a return to old tax norms.

U.S. Healthcare Reform Bill, Help! I’ve Been Taxed and I Can’t Get Up / Politics / Taxes

By: Jeff_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Clark, Senior Editor, Casey’s Gold & Resource Report

Like many of you, the passage of the healthcare bill wasn’t met with the popping of champagne in my house. I found myself chanting “Uncle Sam, Uncle Sham” as the day wore on. Higher taxes and other major changes are headed our way. And yet, I think there’s something in the bill that’s even more dastardly.

Isle of Man, The Greatest Tax Haven? / Politics / Taxes

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNathan Blevins writes:The Call of Ellan Vannin - Freedom isn’t some fanciful creature of the imagination, like Bigfoot. It actually exists, and I’ve seen it. For in the year of our Lord, 2006, I had the marvellous privilege of fulfilling a lifelong personal dream: the dream of travelling to an enchanted place I’d always wished to visit. Well, perhaps I’d not held the dream that long. For you see, it was roughly 6 or 7 years ago that I was reading some smashing stuff from fellow liberty lover, Ron Holland, when I happened upon a trivia question of his that gave me pause:

How To Create A Fairer Tax Environment / Politics / Taxes

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan lawmakers who don't have the courage or intelligence to outlaw texting while driving really be expected to create a saner tax structure? Hmmm.

Developing a fairer tax environment is much less an economics problem than it is a political dilemma and, as many of you observed, it is unlikely that anything "tax" will be improved upon until there is some serious facial (and cultural) change in Washington.

The Truth About Tax Havens / Politics / Taxes

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSuddenly in March, the news was full of denunciations of “tax havens.” While there is no standard definition of this term, tax havens are generally nations with low taxes, privacy in financial matters, and limited reporting to foreign tax bureaucracies. These countries, generally smaller and less developed, are being blamed for much of the world’s economic and social ills.

Road Car Tax Hikes- Gordon Browns Next Tax U-Turn? / Politics / Taxes

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Gordon Brown's Labour government looks set to march towards another humiliating tax u-turn as the proposed changes to the Road Tax to make it 'Greener', that will result in 9 million motorists paying more tax, totaling over £1 billion, many of those that will be hit the hardest are the poorest motorists that could see tax hikes of more than 50%. This is contrary to Gordon Browns statement made at the House of Commons that the majority of car drivers would benefit from the changes. Whilst it is estimated that less than 19% will actually pay less tax.

Eliminate Investment and Corporate Taxes - Investors For The Fair Tax Unite / Politics / Taxes

By: Steve_Selengut

The vast majority of Americans are investors, although many don't realize it. The vast majority of Americans are creative with their 1040 numbers, although most won't admit it. The majority of Americans would agree that investing, retirement planning, and estate preservation would be easier to manage if the Internal Revenue Code was comprehensible. A landslide of American voters would elect any candidate championing IRC replacement surgery.

Defending Tax Cuts Against Leftist Journalists / Economics / Taxes

By: Gerard_Jackson

Jonathan Chait, a senior editor with The New Republic , has written an unintentionally funny book called The Big Con: The True Story of How Washington Got Hoodwinked and Hijacked by Crackpot Economics , part of which was published in the TNA. ( How economic crackpots devoured American politics. Feast of the Wingnuts ) At or near the top of his pet hatreds is supply-side economics (a “crank doctrine”) and the Laffer curve. One thing became immediately clear: Chait is the last person who should be calling anyone an economic crackpot.

The Elasticity of Taxable Income - How the Laffer Curve Really Works / InvestorEducation / Taxes

By: Gerard_Jackson

Let us begin with the much neglected Kennedy tax cuts and then follow through with other tax measures. We shall then finish with a diagrammatic explanation of how cuts in capital gains taxes expand both the economy and tax revenues.

Kennedy declared that “it is a paradoxical that tax rates are too high and tax revenues too low”. In other words, high taxes were depressing output. Acting on this belief — what so many today sneeringly call supply-side economics — he cut taxes in 1963 and investment surged ahead. In the four years preceding the Kennedy cuts only 27.8 per cent of what is termed investment went to business and 38.5 per cent to real estate.

What a Taxing Day and Life! / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Ty_Andros

I received this recently in an email and I realized the awful truth of it.  Be sure to read all the way to the End! This is a public servants ode to the taxpayer:

Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table, at which he's fed. 
Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, teach him taxes, Are the rule. 
Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat. 
Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt. 
Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he tries to think.
