My gross income is $42,000 per year. I pay about $1,100 in federal and state income taxes. I am retired, collect SS and a pension from work. Is that fair?
My mother owns her home, gets SS and a small pension. She owes and pays no federal or state income tax. All of her property tax payments are refunded by the state. Is that fair?
Should we all share the burden and pay a minimum tax?
