I am just guessing. I didn't calculate. I could be lying.
I calculated my answer. My answer is true.
Wait for the poll.
No offense but that is none of your business.

Here is my personal situation:
Income from all sources = $39,836.66
Federal Income tax, Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes and mandatory insurance payments = $3,673.96
Federal Refund = $1,938.00
North Carolina Income tax = $525.00
North Carolina refund = $0.00
North Carolina tax due = $650.00
My federal taxes were at an effective rate of 4.4%
My state taxes were at an effective rate of 2.9%
My overall effective tax rate was 7.3%
The Supreme Court declared that the Affordable Care Act was a tax. If you disagree with the Supreme Court's assertion then please let me know. I can redo the calculation based on the assumption that mandatory insurance is not a tax.

My refund was reduced by $600.00 exactly because of the miscalculation of my income when I signed up through the exchange.
Wow! I didn't look at form 8962 until now. It seems that I was rewarded for miscalculating my income. My subsidy was off by $843 but I only had to make up the $600. $600 is the maximum. It seems the government is rewarding people for estimating their income to be really low. It makes sense why they would do that but it will backfire once everybody catches on.
Still waiting for my tax guy to finish my return. He took on too much this year and had to file extensions for over 100 of his clients. But in spite of all that, he's still the best in the area. He's a former tax auditor, so he knows all the ins and outs of filing. When we first started going to him, he asked for our previous year's return and re-did gratis. Got us almost $1000 back and we were using Turbo Tax to file. We handed him the last 6 years returns he saved us thousands of dollars. I'll happily pay that $153 I pay him to do my taxes.

We pay about $1.900 in nuisance and school, borough, and county taxes .
There is no escape , everything, whether wanted or not, is paid via taxes ..
Using the tedious and ultra slow "Turbo-Tax" I saved about $50; the other lousy internet tax prep "service" refused to allow me to use PA's tax forgiveness .
Nex year, I'll use the long forms .. much quicker and easier. The internet can go to hell , in this area !
Between 20% and 50% on income.
Property was also reassessed during the year and increased $800 to $13,000.

For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
