Form 1040-SR is available as an optional alternative to using Form 1040 for taxpayers who are age 65 or older. Form 1040-SR uses the same schedules and instructions as Form 1040 does.
This form for senior citizens surprised the hell out of me! Then it made me laugh because it is just a form that has no benefits. The tax table is just as it is on the standard form 1040.
I used Turbo Tax to do the taxes, and due to our ages, I guess we are SENIOR CITIZENS. I haven’t been doing so, but I am gonna look for every senior citizen discount I can find.
I gotta get something for being crushed by the Government for being fortunate enough to fall into the MIDDLE CLASS.
I wonder how long it would take them to arrest me if I refuse to continue paying taxes? I should because I was hurt on federal property during working hours.
Of course, I fought to get what was due to me. However, I am 100% disabled and they still tax my disability income.
Dave Barry: “Congresspersons are too busy raising campaign money to read the laws they pass. The laws are written by staff tax nerds who can put pretty much any wording they want in there. I bet that if you actually read the entire vastness of the U.S. Tax Code, you’d find at least one sex scene.”
Right to Pay the correct amount of Taxes
Albert Einstein: “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.”
The IRS is not going to tell you! So how will you know?
If you ask me—hell, we have been overpaying taxes since Trump came into office. I have been doing my own taxes for years and I have become total disgusted with the entire system.
The tax payers’ bill of rights is Bull Sh*t! Why? Unless you are working for the IRS or as a trained tax preparer, how will you know how much taxes you are supposed to pay? Better yet—how will you know that you paid to much in taxes?
The IRS under Trump has taken away all of the exemptions that once helped middle-class taxpayers. For instance, the change to itemized deductions. You forced to take the stand deduction!
If you own a house, forget it, it is highly impossible to use it unless you have enough to not use the standard deductions.
July 15, 2020, is tax day…and if you owe money, you better start writing the check. Anyone that thinks the Trump Administration has done an outstanding job…you are delusional and blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other.
- Dave Barry: “It’s income tax time again, Americans: time to gather up those receipts, get out those tax forms, sharpen up that pencil, and stab yourself in the aorta.”
- David Frum: “The big winners under the American fiscal system are the rich, who pay some of the lowest taxes anywhere in the world; the old, who are the main beneficiaries of the American social service state; farmers, rural people. These are Republican constituencies.”
Did Donald Trump Say Not Paying Taxes ‘Makes Me Smart’?
