Charitable contributions to qualified charities only

Deductions for children

No deductions for expenses against illegal income

Energy credits

Research credits

Farm subsidy

Payments to not produce


and on and on and on....

Wish we could get payments for not REproducing :lol:

Really though, taxes as a way to steer the public. :spank:

Neighbors house burns down, write 'em a check no tax deduction.

Check to American Red Cross = tax deduction

How come every candidate for Prez. who runs on a flat tax gets killed in the polls and the press? Ross Perot, Jonthan Edwards, Ect.
We should end the Fed too but only ones that have the balls to say that are Ron Paul and Barney Frank.

I have the ballz to say it. END THE FED, or they will end your perceived freedom (doing a damn fine job already).

The federal reserve bank is no more federal than fedex.
