Halvdelen af amerikanerne betaler ikke skat – det hører du ikke på DDR

In recent years, credits for low- and middle-income families have grown so much that a family of four making as much as $50,000 will owe no federal income tax for 2009, as long as there are two children younger than 17, according to a separate analysis by the consulting firm Deloitte Tax.

Tax cuts enacted in the past decade have been generous to wealthy taxpayers, too, making them a target for President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress. Less noticed were tax cuts for low- and middle-income families, which were expanded when Obama signed the massive economic recovery package last year.

The result is a tax system that exempts almost half the country from paying for programs that benefit everyone, including national defense, public safety, infrastructure and education. It is a system in which the top 10 percent of earners — households making an average of $366,400 in 2006 — paid about 73 percent of the income taxes collected by the federal government.

The bottom 40 percent, on average, make a profit from the federal income tax, meaning they get more money in tax credits than they would otherwise owe in taxes. For those people, the government sends them a payment.

“We have 50 percent of people who are getting something for nothing,” said Curtis Dubay, senior tax policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation.

  1. Nøgleordet her er “federal”. De betaler ikke “statsskat” men de betaler sandelig delstatsskat. Se http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/lucky-ducky-redux/

  2. Ja det ved jeg godt – det står også i artiklen der linkes til – og benzin, alkoholskat og moms etc. Men det ændrer ikke ved at halvdelen af amerikanere ikke betaler skat og at de øverste 10% betaler 73% af skatterne.

  3. Det sanmme er tilfældet i DK, folk som modtager deres penge fra offentlige kasser uden modydelse, betaler heller ikke skat.

  4. Ser i dagens JP, at et flertal af danskere gaa ind for at hæve skatten frem for besparelser paa de offentlige budgeter.

    Ikke forbavsende siden flertallet lever af de offentlige kasser.
