It has long plagued our country. Everyone who is a lawful citizen knows of this service. A service... almost a comical name for such debauchery. The IRS. The Internal Revenue Service. How does one group decide who is exempt from what programs? Who decides who owes more money than others on which events?
This is what I would like to know. An E-4 in the Marine Corps, Rank of Corporal, with a young wife who is a college student and works at Subway owe money back to the IRS even though she doesn't claim any exemptions, and he claims but one on their respective W-4's. So how is it that they could owe the IRS back taxes of almost 700 dollars at the end of the fiscal year. This occurred in the tax year of 2013. A young Marine who fights for his country, considered a junior enlisted. Combining his income with his wife after the standard IRS deduction of 6,100 dollars their adjusted gross income is 20550 dollars, which is only 5000 dollars more than the poverty line. Just living above the poverty line, and a service member, with a young wife who works at a subway, how can they owe money back to the IRS.
My fellow brother and sister Americans, long has how much our taxes owed been prescribed for us. I say that we demand answers, an in depth audit of the IRS itself as well as demand that we look for new improved ways to do taxes. Most notably in the form of the Fair Tax.
We the people would require that the United States Secretary of Treasury do an in depth audit of the IRS, looking to close loop holes, and negate lost funds.
And also look into new methods of taxation in the form of a fair tax.
