In this country there are those of us who pay the taxes, and those who don't.
Taxes that fund our City, County, State and Federal Governments, as well as Police, Fire, Roads, Bridges and of course Social Equity.
But Joe Biden's "pay their fair share" demand is a distorted dishonest ploy, to give cover to so many who will never pay taxes.
Those who don't and those who do pay taxes come in three groups:
A large number of hard working people who pay more taxes than they realize.
And a huge number of people who pay no taxes because these are people struggling to make ends meet, on welfare or disability, or are trying so survive on nothing but social security retirement.
And then those who don’t pay taxes but have plenty of income, this third group is made up of drug dealers, hookers, thieves, human traffickers and apparently dead beat politicians, airlines and some large banks.
Truist Bank owes $3,743,363.45 in property taxes for the wonderful purchase they made in 2020 at 214 North Tryon Street.
and American Airlines owes $3,605,245.23 just one of several bills.
And just for fun US Airways still owes Mecklenburg County for a 2002 tax bill in the amount of $4,842,595.38 and Piedmont Airlines owes for a 2002 tax bill in the amount of $1,382,802.63. Both will never be paid thanks to bankruptcy filings. But our county keeps these numbers on the books to fluff up the balance sheet.
So what happens is you pay pay your taxes on time to support those who don’t pay taxes first and then for county and city services.
But given the numbers doesn't it seem odd that so many people don't really pay their "fair share" yet Joe Biden wants to tax your fractional ownership in bitcoin, or tax your yard sale proceeds?
