    Wealthy Americans and Taxes

    The wealthy pay their fair share: bullshit

    Tip of the iceberg: USB

    Whistle blower save US Billions of dollars and gets jail time.

    Tax cheats? Amnesty.

    :lol:

    gotta love the bullshit about soaking the wealthy when they send their money offshore.

    Brad Birkenfeld - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    On October 22, 2009, whistleblower advocacy groups sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, urging him to conduct an independent review of Birkenfeld's case because of the chilling effect it is having on potential financial whistleblowers.[9]​

    Waaawaaawaaawaaa.

    If you don't like it, quit your whining-n-crying, demand that the income tax be abolished and that spending be brought under control.

    Better idea:

    A combined force of nations invades Switzerland and every other 'Tax Haven', seizes all the assets of their own citizens and uses it to pay off their government deficits.

    They then send the balance out in 'rebate' checks to working people of their respective nations.

    Wealthy Americans have been cheating on their taxes for ages even as they lie about what they pay.

    Funny, the average American is stuck with payroll taxes that they cannot really cheat on.

    Fair?

    Fair?

    Yeah, all we ever hear about is how unfair it is to tax the wealthy who cheat. :lol:

    Hell, until the war of choice is paid for in Iraq, and until we are out of Afghanistan, we revert to the WW2 tax structure. And anytime we deploy more than 200 soldiers in a combat situation, those taxes automatically kick in.

    Present deficit, future deficit, and future wars of choice all solved in one stroke.

    You do know that US law requires people to disclose offshore accounts, and pay taxes on them, right? Or do you think they disclosed these accounts to the IRS so that the IRS would know they couldn't touch the money?

    That doesn't repeal the 16th Amendment and drastically reduce spending....But it does try to move the goalposts.

    No, that's not a better idea, by any stretch of the imagination, Uncle Josef.
