Corporate taxes only serve to benefit politicians who can hide the tax from voters and solicit cash from corporations in exchanged for special treatment. Come on people you're smarter than this!

Comment This happened to my wife (Score 5, Interesting) 632

We had a $186.00 deducted from our tax refund this year for social security. Having never collected social security we called the SSA and was informed that the social securities benefits my wife received as a teen following the death of her father were overpaid as she had a part-time job at a pharmacy and they had deducted the amount. Mind you my wife is 53 years old now.
