Most Americans feel they pay too much in taxes, AP-NORC poll finds

Kenyans you are not alone in the outcry against Zakayo’s intolerable tax regime. I think of taxes as state-sanctioned theft that maintains government largesse. Just look at your payslip and visualize how ahead you would be if that money was going straight into your pockets. It’s so painful.

NEW YORK (AP) — A majority of taxpayers feel they pay too much in taxes, with many saying that they receive a poor value in return, according to a new poll from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Two-thirds of U.S. taxpayers say they spend “too much” on federal income taxes, as tax season begins. About 7 in 10 say the same about local property taxes, while roughly 6 in 10 feel that way about state sales tax. Generally speaking, Republicans are more likely than Democrats to view taxes as unfair, to say they are paying too much in taxes, and to see taxes as a poor value.

The poll found that few U.S. adults have a high level of confidence that the institutions that ultimately use their tax dollars — whether the federal government or local school districts — spend those taxes in the best interest of “people like them.”

Loretta Mwangi, 60, a Democrat who lives in Baltimore, sees taxes as fair and said she doesn’t have strong criticisms of how the government allocates tax dollars. Mwangi, who suffers from chronic pain after years of working in warehouses and as a security guard, currently lives on disability benefits. :cry:

“They’re going by how much you’re making and taking a percentage based on that,” she said. “There could be more support for education and for the homeless — there are a lot of people under the bridges still.”

Fucking JSKS the dog

Sly propaganda by Nabii blogger to influence sentiment.

We are not boarding.

In the United States, the average single worker faced a net average tax rate of 24.8% in 2022, compared with the OECD average of 24.6%. In other words, in the United States the take-home pay of an average single worker, after tax and benefits, was 75.2% of their gross wage, compared with the OECD average of 75.4%.

Nabii is taxing Kenyans leaving take home at below 40%.

At least their taxes are put to good use
