You don’t need to pay the government so much! Yes, everyone needs to pay taxes, but how much you pay depends on the choices that you make.
There are two tax systems in our country: one for the informed and one for the uninformed.
You can either file as an employee and pay more taxes, or you can file as an employer and keep more money. You don’t even need to hire anyone else. You can be your own employee. But filing as an employer means that you could save THOUSANDS of dollars each year—money that you can use to pay off debt, build a down payment on a house or keep for the future.
In the words of Learned Hand, Justice appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, “Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.”
In other words, you are allowed to change the way that you file taxes so you keep more money.
But no one is going to call to let you know that you are paying more than you need to. Especially not the federal government. “Why doesn’t everyone do it?”. Have you ever stumbled on to an amazing restaurant that was there for years but you just never noticed? Or one day found a better way to do something that you’d struggled with for a long time? These things were around for a while, but you just never knew about them.
It’s the same with your taxes.
The vast majority of Americans don’t take advantage of deductions because they don’t know that they can.
Unless you have a degree in finance or come from a wealthy family, chances are that you don’t know that there are hundreds of items that are legally deductible. You probably have no idea how much money you could have gotten back every year.
