> How many baby sitters pay income tax on their earnings today?
The article I listed didn't ask whether baby sitters would have to pay
income tax, but whether they would be required to charge a sales tax
when rendering their services.
But since you asked... Clearly nobody has ever had to worry about paying
taxes on income from baby sitting, whether you're the sitter or the
employer; that's why documents like these don't exist:
I don't think the job you perform matters. If you make money, the
government will tax you on it, or at least want to.
> No, they're not all tax criminals.
Of course they're not. I certainly don't consider people criminals who
either through negligence or choice pay taxes.
> This isn't rocket science.
Neither was the article I posted a link to... Neither is understanding
that taxes are a detriment to the economy, sovereign people and no more
than legalized thievery. Ever wondered why our tax code is so complex
and just keeps getting that way. FairTax won't make it any better. It
will just change the complexity.
> Seriously, the babysitter crap was just the tip of the iceberg.
I'm waiting for someone with more common-sense to elaborate on the rest
of the iceberg, since clearly I lack in that area. Maybe I can swallow
that a little more wholly.
