I have a buddy that has a job-job and makes a lot of money. He also does side work a couple of times a month for cash, typically. Last year he had his taxes ready to file and was going to have to send the IRS something like 2 grand. He wasn’t happy.
THEN he got a 1099 from a customer that was for a small $2k job... he plugged that new income into the software and his tax bill for the year bounced to 3 grand. He thought there was a mistake. No... it’s those top tax rates on high earners. By the time you get to the end of the year, basically half of every dollar you earn is considered “your fair share.”
Long story short, that $2k side job isn’t worth doing for $1k after taxes... so he quits fooling with them. His customers have to find a professional to come out and do the work, and that $2k side job becomes a $4k job.... but the good news is that tax increases don’t affect the little guys, lol
Don't feed the troll... I'm sure he knows Lumberton has been solid the last 3 years or so. This guy is just looking for a reason to bash a kid or a program that's been on the rise. Probably because McClure torched little Johnny at some point earlier this year for 40+.
