    Default This is Fucking Crazy! (bye bye money)

    These fucking politicians that created this damn mess should go without pay until they fix it, not the taxpayers.

    Calif. Boosts Income Tax Witholding 10 Percent

    Starting this week, employers must withhold 10 percent more in state income taxes -- a move equivalent to taxpayers giving the state a $1.7 billion cash advance through next June, the end of the fiscal year.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature included the accelerated withholding as part of a budget deal reached in February.

    A single wage earner making $51,000 a year with no dependents will see a $4.06 increase in weekly state income tax withholdings. A couple earning $145,000 a year with no dependents will notice a $16.90 increase in weekly withholdings.

    The action is technically not a tax increase because the state is supposed to return the extra money after people file their tax returns, said Brenda Voet, a spokeswoman for the California Franchise Tax Board.

    Because the move begins in November, it will have a minimal effect on 2009 tax returns. The effect on future tax returns could be more profound because the stepped-up withholding will remain in effect indefinitely.

    The Franchise Tax Board is urging California workers to review their state withholdings and contact their tax adviser.

    Those who file quarterly estimated income taxes, such as the self-employed or those who generate significant income from stock options and dividends, also must speed up tax payments.

    Starting Jan. 1, the state will require them to pay 70 percent of their estimated taxes during the first six months of the calendar year, up from 60 percent.

    Under the new quarterly schedule, tax filers making estimated payments will pay 30 percent in the first quarter, 40 percent in the second, nothing in the third and 30 percent in the fourth.

    Separately, the February budget deal also increased the personal income tax rate temporarily by 0.25 percent. The increase will expire at the end of 2010.

    Hey RINO Arnold eat shit and die.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Actually, the far reaching hands of Washington have gone across the pond and bartered with the swiss banks to help prevent that.

    WE did.

    WE elected them all. WE told them that WE want all these stupid programs. WE also told them we don't want them to raise our taxes which meant that while we wanted all of these programs but We didn't want to pay for it.

    WORSE...

    WE have a state initiative process where any idiot can put something on the ballot and have it voted into law. So the WE have voted in law a number of initiatives that FORCE the state to spend money in a certain way ($1 Billion spent on stem-cell research, etc).

    The governator DID do a state audit, and originally proposed doing away with a number of state agencies and state boards, but WE had a hissy-fit so he chickened out.

    WE have the government that WE deserve. WE have painted ourselves into a nifty little corner. WE have screwed ourselves because WE have put politics over reality in this state. So in return, the state has shoved both fists up our collective pooper, while we wonder how this all happened.

    I hate to say it, but, very well put. My fear is that many other states will end up in the picke Cali is in because they want to raise taxes and create government programs that drain and never go away.

    Every now and then I miss California.

    But, it's times like this that I'm glad I left and realize I don't miss it as much as I thought.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
