Deep in the Heart of Taxes
In 2009, according to a Gallup poll, 48 percent of Americans believed that they were paying the right amount of Federal Income tax. In that same year, CBS claimed that 43.4 percent paid no federal income taxes. Some even received money they did not pay into the system. This year, the level of federal tax satisfaction has gone down to 45 percent. Now the breakdown by income level does not support the notion that those who pay no federal income taxes are the ones who believe they are taxed at the right level, but it is interesting that the lines intersect as they do. Perhaps I'll ponder this over a cup of tea . . . .
