Posted on Facebook today by the McLean County Democrats:
If people got smaller refunds it is because they paid less in all year! Please check the total federal taxes you paid in 2017 compared to the total you paid for 2018.
Question: Why would anybody let the government use your money all year interest free? Just to get a refund of your own money?
Next, Corporate Taxes:
We know democrats hate business, just look at how they make Illinois unattractive for new businesses. Both Bloomington and Normal pick what businesses they want and use subsidies to land them. Brilliant. (right fit)
Democrats don’t understand corporations don’t pay taxes. They price their products so they collect enough revenue to write checks to the IRS. Therefore – CONSUMERS are paying the tax by paying higher prices for goods and services.
Employees of corporations pay taxes, the corporate tax rate should be zero. The entire economy would be better off and a lot of accountants and lawyers would have to find new work. Imagine all the money poured back into research and development, even raises for employees!
I hear there are lots of job openings since the unemployment rate is extremely low, thanks to the tax cuts.
