Tax Issues In Philadelphia And Other Places

May 11, 2008
It is no wonder that so many hard working Americans have a difficult time making ends meet. It is hard enough to have a small business these days and it is not any easier for those who work for others. We have a large amount of any money we make going to all kinds of taxes every time we turn around.

It is not that we Americans mind paying for the things we need to run our country, but sometimes it seems like the bureaucracy of the our governments are running us .We actually have very little say in how all the tax dollars that we are constantly paying is spent. We realize that roads and public facilities are necessary to make our country great, but there are many things that we could definitely do without.

In the city of Philadelphia, there seems to be plenty of disgruntled property owners who think they are unfairly taxed. This is a real problem in a lot of places and not just Philadelphia alone. It is sad when older people who worked all their lives to pay for a home that they can live in when they are no longer able to work can not afford to pay the property taxes that they are faced with each year. Younger couples with children that are still paying their mortgage every month, have the added burden of property tax inflation too.

How is it possible to ever get ahead even when we work so hard to have the American Dream when every time we make an extra dollar there is someone standing with their hand out wanting a piece of it? City taxes, state taxes, and the ever popular federal taxes all eat away at our take home pay. Then we have Social Security and Medicare to contend with as well. We need these two things, but add them to all the taxes and we barely have enough left to make it sometimes, especially those who have a small income.

We have to start picking our politicians more carefully. As Americans we constantly whine about the amount of taxes that we are saddled with, yet when election time comes around there are many of us who do not take the time to pay attention to those running for our state and city governments. We must if we ever want anything to change for the better. We need to pay more attention to where our state taxes and city taxes are going to and if we disagree with what they are being spent on, use our voices to protest.
