Post here if your effective federal tax rate this year was higher than Bernie's (13.5%) !!

Defined as

total tax (line 63) / total income (line 22)


I'm not sure what mine is yet because my accountant filed an extension.

10. Post here if you're net worth was more then Hillary's ($31 Million)!!

Defined as

We calculated Hillary Clintonís net worth as $31.3 million
◦Hillary Clinton minimum possible net worth: $10.8 million.
◦Hillary Clinton maximum possible net worth: $51.7 million.

In January of 2009 Mrs. Clinton left the senate to become the U.S. Secretary of State. Her salary in that job was $186,600. While thatís not exactly small, Itís only $12,600 more per year than the salary of a U.S. senator at $174,000.

It hardly accounts for a $10 million hike in the Hillary Clinton net worth total the same year. Also in 2009, Clinton reported buying $5 million to $26 million in money market funds and real estate.

25. I'm confused: are we talking about min (yes) or max (no)

Now, have we decided that wealth is bad? Even if we decided to save $500,000 by not having kids? Or worked responsibly to save every dollar we could?

13. You know what Bernie really needs? A "charity"foundation.

One that gives a small fraction of money away, but provides a nice living to the "directors."

14. 1.4% n/t

 

This of course doesn't include FICA, Property, self employment, personal property, gas, utility, sales or other taxes. Add those and, like Sanders, it's about 30% - maybe a bit more.

I imagine that the nice thing about being rich would be that, although income tax rates would be higher, those rest would be much lower.

I think mine was a bit higher last year, and a bit lower this year. Or maybe vice versa.
