Taxes are a necessary evil in our society.
It's difficult to see a portion of your hard-earned money get sent away to the government.
Why do we even have to pay them?
Because the government needs funding and they take our tax dollars to fund state & federal programs such as Medicare, and projects such as new road development.
I won't speak to how well the government is at managing the money they receive from us... but I believe we should pay our fair share of taxes, and not a cent more.
Unfortunately, a lot of people are paying way more than an extra penny.
It's reported that 73.2% of taxpayers overpaid their tax bill in 2019 and received a refund. While a refund can feel good at the time, you're essentially giving the government an interest-free loan for a year and then they're giving you the money back.
Many people started investing for the first time in the past couple of years and have been shocked at the amount of taxes that can come due when day trading stocks and cryptocurrencies.
