They are not socially irrelevant, they clearly pay a valuable roll in pointing out the fact that many Americans have sub par intelligence.
Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
Should we also count the tax on stupidity then? Better known as the lottery?
Thank you, Quazi!
Welcome to bizzaro world people. Under the new "health reform" bill people's benefits packages may be taxed as income, as well anything that has an FDA number is subject to tax(including, but not limited to OTC/BPO medicines, medical devices, and toothbrushes). Cap and Trade is back on the table, the Bush tax cuts are being allowed to sunset, I.R.S. powers have been increased, the death tax is being reinstated in 2011, and there have been internet usage taxes proposed as well as a newly instituted tanning bed tax.............
But taxes are not going up.

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
@ Midnight -- I think it's only fair that employees' healthcare benefits are taxable. Until people who pay their own healthcare are allowed to deduct their healthcare premiums right off the top, not subject to "Oh, you have to pay a certain % of your income before they're deductible, it's very unfair treatment.
Thank you, Quazi!
A credit was (for most households) applied to your 2009 return. $400, or $800 for married joint-filers. I think the same will be done in 2010, but I'm not certain of that.
A full third of the stimulus spending was tax cuts of various forms, many of which help small business owners.
If you had somebody else do your taxes for you, it's not hard to see how you would miss this. The tax accountant guys would be handling it and might not even bother to mention it since it's relatively small and shows up on everyone's return.
Edit: Actually, it was adjusted on the employer withholding end, it turns out. So it's even easier for someone to be unaware that it even happened.
