Taxes Part 1

If I did my math right according to the info that the our tax preparer gave us, today is the first day that Ram worked in 2013 that he begins to make money. Up until this date all his paychecks went to pay taxes. That doesn't even count sales tax and other taxes. Thank goodness we can make estimated payments throughout the year. I wish that all people had to send a check in quarterly instead of having it deducted from their paychecks. It might make a difference for people voting if they had to do the painful act of writing a check out instead of just having it deducted and never seeing that money. Plus those that get refunds are usually just getting money refunded that the government held onto all year out of their paychecks, not truly getting a "bonus" of money.
