I’m not a complicated man. I like my coffee black, my homosexuals flaming, and I don’t want to make anything more difficult than it needs to be. Unfortunately the U.S. Government doesn’t share those feelings.
I own a small business, and I have to file my taxes quarterly. And since our government manages its money about as well as a crack whore, I have to estimate my earnings in advance. Yep, you read that correctly. I have to predict how much money I’m going to make and pay taxes on it. The best part is if I guess too low, I can get penalized.
Here’s an idea. How about you let me pay my goddamn taxes at the end of the year after I know how much I made. Unlike the large multinational corporations that don’t pay a cent, I don’t have a team of CPAs all working to game the system. I have no problem paying what I owe, but I would prefer to do it in a way that’s not insane.
