If more folks can be willing to open up their minds and look to see how wealthier people got to where they are, instead of just shoot them down for being lucky or whatever, I think more people will get wealthier!
FS, thanks again for a well balanced and objective website on a subject money and wealth that can be so contentious. And much of the mystery, hysteria and misinformation about wealth creation is due to this false egalitarian ethic that permeates every aspect of our society today.
Yes, everyone is entitled to equal opportunity, but that NEVER produces equal results and never will — simply because individual people are in fact different from one another and that leads to different outcomes e. I agree, I here hear people say all the time the rich pay less in taxes, they use Warren Buffet as their example.
I ask them to point me to the location in the tax code that the rate decreases. It does not. It never decreases. Then they state well he makes all his money on investment, and capital gains is lower, well yes, but its even with capital gains the rich pay more on capital gains. The fact is the press has done a great job of saying the rich are bad, corporations are bad. Maybe people should be upset with how the government spends the money they takes from people. Also huge corporations can move to Ireland or other off-shore locations to enjoy tax benefits while still operating mostly in the US.
Jacob, simply check the IRS data, it belies what you say. And you are confusing marginal rates with average rates, you are comparing the top marginal income tax rate with a capital gains rate.
¡Cuidado! Café cargado by Victoria García Jolly
Moreover, stockholders own and are responsible for the company in all regards; the income, the cost, the profit AND for the taxes. And as much as you would like to believe companies run from America to incorporate, the number is quite small by comparison. The top capital gain rate is around 23 percent. The capital gain rate for people in the 15 percent bracket is zero.
A non married couple with head of household closer to 90 k if both have their own portfolios. If the married couple have itemized deductions and exemptions they could potentially take home close to 90k to k before paying any taxes. If this couple were running a business they could deduct their BMW lease payments, health care costs, and other benefits to help this couple have a break even business. Furthermore this small business can offer a k plan and Hsa plan to put away another 22k away tax free. This couple would be in the top 8 percent and pay no income tax.
Furthermore wealthy investors pay zero dollars on the appreciation of their assets which is arguably income in a real sense. I hope this helps with the zero tax part…. You would never know by looking at us that we have an eight figure net worth. We have no boats, motorcycles, or fancy cars. The real problem will be when wealthy couples like us step out of the work force a decade or more before normal retirement age because we are tired of working for the government months out of the year.
Serious tax reform is needed if this country is to survive another years. It is one of the major reasons for our decision to retire in the next couple years. How much money does one actually NEED? The answer to that question is unique to each person. The tone of your comments has the odor of socialism, and that, my friend, is not a good path to financial freedom.
What do you do with your money? Your take home is over k a year and you have no big material items. You either make lousy investments or like to sit on money and whine about paying taxes. We are retired now. We have 3 beautiful homes that we enjoy and we travel extensively. I splurged on a couple boats in the last year and we spend much of our time on the water when we are not traveling. Their highest fee is 0. If someone holds stock till death and extremely wealthy the fair market value of the stock is included in the estate of the deceased.
Good estate planning will contribute that to a family partnership or another entity and gift the partnership interest at a discounted rate prior to estate issues arising. And kudos to YOU, Sir, for being honest. From ALL sources. And how much did you receive in refunds? The remainder is how much you actually paid. That, my friend, is the only honest picture, from which we can judge, whether people are paying their fair share of TAXES. No deductions. That kind of thinking is what is saving the rich!
We have GOT to stop thinking they need to pay such ridiculous rates. Many pay very little actual cash. The thing that has to happen is the rate structure has got to change. Flat tax rate, no deductions. If you WANT to spend your money, because you have more of it, it will help the overall economy. But no more, where people with billions, get to keep all of it because they spend it correctly. Just check the IRS website before making unfounded remarks about how much people actually pay in taxes.
That is effectively what the tax is based on e. Someone who is 30 and has that much money has the most important asset in the world, TIME, to build on that wealth. Beware, beware jumping to political conclusions about the relative tax contributions of money classes in the US to the society at large. First off, I offer me as an example of just how misleading things can be:. I am probably in the peak years of my income generation, but I funnel it through a business. They have been for years, and will continue to be zero for years.
Moreover, inheritance tax planning will likely hide my assets for two more generations. In 70 years my grandchildren will pay a hefty income tax that will buff the charts like the one in this article, but the years of untaxed compounding will be hidden. Shall we use 10x appreciation? Or are you going to say the report is a lie? You would also know that lying in them is a Federal crime. Of course, there is no punishment when the Huffington Post does it though.
No one has provided anything substantive. FS sounds like he understands the tax code very well, hence his poignant question. Those who make more not only pay more but pay at a higher rate. But there are strict rules around that, it only goes so far. I am very familiar with them. Loopholes must be filled and everybody should pay their relative fair share.
But that is not enough, in a wealthy country like ours the basic needs of all should be secure. The ten top earring countries mentioned give a lot more security to their citizens then we do, from end to beginning, nursing homes are heavily subsidized if not free, so is medical care, education, and infant care. One cannot thrive with a Damocles sword hanging over his head. Once the playing field is level and the sword seethed then entrepreneurship and hard work definitely more then 40hrs a week, at least in the beginning will have a much better chance at rewarding the applicants.
If I have no deductions, family of 4 and earn 26, I also according to this article pay no taxes.. Duh…never use AGI in any comparison, it is a sure sign you are rich. Partnerships are beautiful creatures my friend! Hire a tax lawyer. I doubt this is a real post, particularly knowing something about the tax code and the statistics in question.
Or is it essentially real estate appreciation that is adding to your net worth as apposed to cash income? The sad part is, people hear this kind of thing and they believe it. They determined this and other findings through direct interview of a large sample, not the typical meta-data analysis of broad reported statistics. Meaning this fact will not come from IRS data for example. And it makes perfect sense as well in case someone wants to raise the BS flag.
They not only likely have jobs where this is more frequently the case e. By doing so they are able to obtain or maintain greater benefits from the state. You can hardly blame them, they are acting rationally perhaps not morally. This is absolutely true. They would get buried in an IRS audit. The expenses must be business related. The expenses he lists are legit, but only the portion directly related to business. Which means you have to have records of what trips were for business, what were not. But, if you want to go to Hawaii for a vacation, just make sure you attend a conference there — and deduct the airfare, hotel, meals, etc.
If you own a business, nearly every dollar of the Hawaii trip is deductible. No minimum necessary. But, there are tax incentives against working for yourself, as well. For example, you must pay the self-employed portion of your payroll tax — which would be covered by an employer. My daughter baby-sat last summer to earn money for college. Check it out! Please explain why you think working more than 40 hours a week to get ahead is moronic.
If you work more than average, what do you think happens? In the average urban areas, the cost of living still outpaces minimum wage rates which allows this. And that has always been the case in large cities. Making all that money just to come home and go to bed? You have to have free time to enjoy outside activities. You could work 80 hours a week and still not even work half the week. I just wanted to say sleep is required in humans. The number of waking hours in a week minus 8 hours of sleep times seven days a week is hours. Just saying. Hear, hear. I would feel lazy. Seriously the wealth gap is greater than it ever has been.
If you want to get ahead you have to be motivated and willing to spend time outside of work learning new skills though. I spent a lot of my free time learning programming and computer science and now I am lead data programmer at my print company. You are right about government responsibility. I lived in a city where artist could be paid by the government to paint horses and drains in the city. Instead of government grant money used for this it should have been part of a course curriculum for an art degree at the local University.
Dumbest remark I have ever heard. If you work as an artist you eventually have to get paid for some work, be it from the private or public center. What is the point of sending more artists through college if there are no jobs for them once they are finished? And, art is one of the few occupations that people can learn on their own if they are blessed with talent, ingenuity and work hard. I only see one problem with your comment. The competition for jobs is due to the fact that more individuals have undergraduate degrees because of for profit and online schools.
I rent apartments in a poorer respectable area of Milwaukee. Now college grads in many fields in their thirties are finding they are delivering pizzas and waiting well into their thirties. Experience has taught me. Forget about gaps. Grind it out and earn what you keep. When you do that, gaps are going to show up. Not everyone has your hustle. This is a good thing. Be comfortable with your place in the world. If one loves the work they do, then we do more of it and chances are make no more for the additional time salaried. And we should be pushing for an international minimum wage as well.
Europe is the best! Very eye-opening! Check out both posts. Working hard, but also having a job that pays well. It seems likely that the uneducated will be squeezed more and more as they compete with overseas labor and automation. GOOD hustle. Thing is…before you had your game tight, think back. When you were grinding it out for little to no compensation did you EVER in your wildest dreams think you would get to the place you are?
One day I just thought…I need to do something. I have got to step up my game. Then I started looking for ways…. Love it. It took me 7 years. No assistance, and no complaints on my part while I watched my contempories piss away the dollars given to them to go to school. I now pay more than 10x the average income in the US in taxes alone. This is not to toot my horn. It is only to say that anything is possible if you work at it. I realize there are physical and other limitations that hinder many.
That is what the system is for. All I know is that hard work and gratefulness goes a long way. I also know that the entitled mindset in the millennials that I interview regularly is sickening. Terrific, and for those that think getting an education is too expensive, please quantify the cost of ignorance. And many do great without a degree. If you do not want to work hard, I suppose you should be happy what you got and do not talk about fairness when you see others are way ahead of you in terms of wealth.
I was on unemployed not that long ago, I enoughed work 40 hours a week and think absolutely nothing after work. I lost my job, things turned around. I made at least 3 times my salary at my old job, and it keeps growing. But I have worked about 10 to 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. My daughter grows up on her own and she is the best student in her high school. You can not get everything on your side. You get something and you may lose the other. Pick what you want. Then move to Denmark. If you want to get ahead, you must either win the lottery or work more than 40 hours a week. If you expect those things, then expect to work more than 40 hours a week.
So before having opinions lets spent time on education to see if thoughts wished really match with reality. I made it! Yes it took much more than 40 hours to be exact hours a week an 80 hours min. So it is still very possible only the person should have the desire to want to get out of poverty. Yes it takes time a lot of hard work but American dream still exist today! If you want to college bad enough yes you can with loans, it will require you to work jobs during but it is very possible!
Oh in the meanwhile i took care of older parents and a younger sister whom i also helped and they did not received ANY government benefits. I agree with the article. I an an auto mechanic, I work a little over fifty hours a week and make just under thirty thousand, which in my area is actually a good wage. I used to think that the rich should pay more, but in the last year ice actually come to realize that they pay the majority of everything.
But more than forty is not a sacrifice when you want to earn more. The only reason that I an where I am now is because I spent a few years working sixty or so hours a week at crappy jobs. I used to work twenty something, but at that time I was practically homeless. I feel like for the majority of people in my situation it is the result of poor choices made in the past. As a small business owner. I would highly recommend starting your own business. In fact I would turn the whole business model of auto service on its head and be mobile without a shop.
That way you could perform routine maintenance and diagnosis at their house. That would be a great time saver for a lot of people. You will break down your body before your time,go crazy, drive others crazy and perpetuate the myth that you can pursue happiness via over work. Why do I think this? I am living proof.
I thought I could be wonder woman. I went through two marriages, and now my health has failed, and all before fifty five. In the thirties and the forties people work more than 40 hours a week. Although one person was the bread winner of the house, generally. And the amounts of divorce back then in households was miniscule compared to today. Divorce was lower in the early twentieth century and before for a myriad of reasons, one of which was complete and utter dependency on that single-income earner by the other members in the family, with little or no laws in place to protect those dependents in the event of divorce.
If you do work more than 40 by getting multiple jobs they start to butt heads. The idea that all you have to do to be successful is MOVE somewhere. Higher wages equals more spending power. More spending power means more economic freedom more economic freedom means the ability to support more small businesses. RealDealExpert: and yet this recommendation makes lots of of sense. The one way I personally found to get ahead is to run my side gig in addition to my day job.
If I ever get fired from my day job, I now have a backup. It depends how much you make an hour. So I was obviously working more than the average person but making way less. These comments are hilarious. Apparently I bucked history in a moronic fashion :. How do you earn a month at mcdonalds? To earn that. There are no McDonald that hires anyone for more then because after that you are to earn k health insurance other benefits. No mcdonalds or even Walmart for that matter does that. Your lucky to earn 60 hours for two weeks. I hope you meant because a month is , a year. No excuses.
Btw, you need to sell yourself and believe you are worth A LOT more than what you are currently getting paid. There is an entire gig economy out there with ridesharing, tasks, etc that help anybody with desire to earn more. Many Europeans work way less hours than Americans and are more productive and happy Germans for example. I went to Europe for a couple months to do research, and I wrote about it:. I think s tarting your own site helps increase your chances of freedom. This entire article is a load of hogwash.
I work 24 hours a week, 4 x 6 hours days from home. You seem to forget that some industries like mine programming have to compete with the entire world. Deprression with infrastructure? Any recommendations on where to find this information? I know that I do pay an exorbarant amount of taxes per year 26, We travel about 5, miles per week at a rate of 1. That leaves 5, Effectively we have incentivized people with lower incomes to continue to have children. My family decided to have only two children in anticipation of assisting them with college and a start in life, and are now the new minority.
The mass majority is voting to increase taxes on anyone who makes over ,, effectively picking our pockets. Personally, I would like to know how much of my hour work week you would like to share in. Interesting insight! Pretty neat the government incentivizes lower income folks to have kids and cuts off child subsidies for those making over a certain amount. That they bribed congress for special loopholes and treatment so all their good fortunes get taxed at a lower rate? When they have garnered most of the gains that labor catalyzes? The poor pay payroll and sales tax that is terribly regressive.
Thanking the poor for paying such a regressive rate, and their own way, while leaving the Paris Hiltons of the world nice loops like the inheritance tax exemptions is an insult to talent and meritocracy everywhere.

The US has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Govt waste comes in two big forms. Defense and healthcare. And until healthcare reform happened, and healthcare costs stopped rising double digits for two years in a row now, that was the singular biggest driver of public and private debt in this country. And of course defense. To catch a few hundred cavemen bombers in hiding.
Everything else is chump change. Blaming the powerless and poorest among us for the economic sins of the wealthy healthcare and military industrial complex is just misplaced puritanism writ large. The point with lowering tax raises results in increased revenue is not entirely true. They also had the predecessor to the TeaParty financed by billionaire Koch Bro. Published a Newsletter and said all the same things—blaming the poor and unemployed for the weak economy.
Check out the facts and Pass this on to everyone. Waw, those are some really impressive figures. There are countries where they would work more than 10 years to earn how much others are doing in one week…. I earn a decent salary and do not mind paying my taxes. It leads me to want to live elsewhere. My address is not to be passed on please. Can you somehow estimate what would be brought in and distributed to the states and feds? This tax would be paid by everyone, from kids buying an ice cream cone, to seniors buying a pair of stretch socks.
How much would hit the treasury? We maybe even be able to eliminate some of the greed. And we could probably eliminate the IRS and all of those employees. More savings. Reading these posts is frustrating…. Some readers post on here where someone paid the same percentage as they did on their taxes and they were livid. I find that comical. It only represented Maybe get rid of tax breaks. Warren Buffet is paying his share and quite a few more peoples share.
Did anyone pay attention that the pay raises that were approved by President Obama. With the economy and unemployment and Government spending out of control it just goes to show how out of touch they are with the American people and who they are supposed to represent. I think where ever a person is they look at how it affects them and looks no further with their argument and sometimes without realizing it they could quite possibly be arguing the same point. As far as the richer paying the same percentage as someone making a smaller amount like say Warren Buffet.
Tonya, thanks for sharing your thoughts. That sounds insane. I would seriously consider changing providers. Here are some facts from the Wall Street Journal June 28, to help you get an honest grasp of the actual penalties for small firms. Once your firm reaches 50 full-time equivalent employees, a penalty will kick in if you fail to provide coverage for employees who average 30 or more hours a week in a given month. That means some businesses that are subject to the penalty may end up owing nothing.
And affordable means the premium for the coverage of the individual employee cannot exceed 9. If the coverage you offer is unaffordable, qualifying employees can get subsidized coverage through the tax credit on the state exchanges. For the last 25 years, most businesses consider their entire employee force part-time, while reserving full-time position for management while already offering insurance to those individuals.
Many companies, like McDonalds will not notice at thing, while their employees making wages near poverty level will be able to buy insurance for themselves at dirt cheep rates through state exchanges. I just read all of the above comments and replies. It used to be that a person working 60 hours a week at a regular job, even at minimum wage could provide basic housing for his family.
I just read a report that many lower income families are now having to live in homeless shelters because there is not enough low-income housing; and I have a real estate friend who told me that most of the cities in our area will not allow builders to build low income or starter homes. It appears that the rich are saying to the rest of the world that they will stay rich, regardless of what the rest of the world is experiencing, and that is their entitlement. You can argue these points all day long and you can twist statistics to suite your argument, but facts are facts, the government has had to create jobs before and it works.
Our Taxes are at an all-time low. Our country needs our enter structure repaired, and that not only creates jobs and tax revenue it takes people off unemployment which cuts government spending. Plus those people can buy; you know the basic way to grow the economy. One big problem with our debt is the wars we have been in and not paid for.
Sure we have to deal with entitlements, but come on we keep printing money and where is it going? Not to the middle class. The middle class wages are stagnant and the rich are sending their money overseas to make even more money. All the people on entitlements are putting it back in the economy. These law makers have a good gig, give themselves raises, collect money from the lobbyist, and blame everyone else for the problems.
Austerity measures only work effectively when done at the correct time. There are other ways, however. I have to submit to Federally mandated background checks, physical exams, random drug and alcohol testing, and recurrent training with competence testing to earn my private sector paycheck.
We have a moral problem. We feel no responsibility to spend within our means, no remorse in forcing others to pay for the overspending of others. The current spending path is unsustainable financially. Keeping people dependent on government, empowers politicians, not the citizens. Remember the whole reason America was founded?
Then screw you! We should be fixing the tax system to give businesses tax breaks for creating jobs in the U. If you make millions from being a CEO of a large corporation e. Romney was a huge employer via multiple corporations that he turned around. Most companies stayed solvent and stayed in the US, some expanded into major corporations. These are your own words?!. It worked in Germany too. YOU think that!!! Just read your own words! And I am in no way filled with hate for my fellow Americans. You may be projecting your own feelings. Companies who hired Bain were doing everything they could to reduce headcount.
Sure, they were huge employers, just not quite as huge after Romney came to the rescue. Should the rich pay a lot more in taxes? Look at it from this point of view, it cost a lot of money to manufacture an aircraft carrier, a jet plane if fact any weapon. The people who put their lives on the line also have to be paid. Now Donald Trump ownes this hotel and casino, my holdings compare to that compare like the size of a bebie to a railroad box car, so he should pay more insurance for his protection.
Remember insurance for real estate have a war clause that says they will not reimburse you if you lose your property to an act of war. I used to work at McDonalds, 2 years ago and I made 7. As for getting this imaginary great 2nd job?
Im sorry, what world do you live in? Where are these awesome jobs? As for moving to where the good jobs are…well I dont know if your aware, but moving costs money.

I will day this much.. We better pick up Brady while we can. MJ products are very hard even for the more hard core collector to afford. I am dumbfounded on some of the prices that his cards fetch. I have noticed Brady is starting to move in that direction too. Example Bowman Chrome rc. That card has doubled in value over the last year while example the Lebron James card has held fort for a while.
I use Bowman as kind of a measuring tool to see what is going to trend up and down. Normally if the Bowman card is going up then it means grab while u can afford. Same with Mike Trout get his stuff while ya can too. Some are already too high but some of his chrome and regular release stuff is still some what affordable. Happy collecting everyone. Just my opinion btw.
