An estimated 4000 households with incomes >$1 million don’t pay income taxes, and 14,000 households making between $500,000 and $1,000,000 pay no income tax. Of course, these numbers are totally dwarfed by the number of households earning <$100,000 paying no taxes (>99% or >75 million households). Oh the “joys” of our tax code never cease!

really? I have to read this!
Well that's annoying! Hey, thanks for including our post. That was actually Jefferson's, but since I do his editing I guess I deserve a mention as well!
Thanks for including my post! I'm not surprised with as many ways as you can manipulate the tax code. I know, I used to work in a CPA firm.
How the heck did I miss this? Thanks for mentioning my piece with all these great reads. I love the TED video.
How in the world are they getting away with this one? Making a million and no taxes!!! I understand how they lower taxes rates if its investments etc but something still should be paid. I know a lot of people like barbers, hairdresser, etc that dont pay any taxes they dont make millions but they are doing well to say they dont pay taxes.
I'm also wondering that myself, Thomas. How is it that the people who have glaringly huge incomes and net worth can get away without paying the government a single cent?
The government better start cracking the whip on these millionaires. That's a boat load of potential tax money the country is missing out on.
