I would suggest that we SWAT flood this CNN Article with comments about the various taxes USPs abroad face. Perhaps we can stress double taxation due to non FEIE on welfare, unemployment, disability, retirement benefits.
…some of the working poor face marginal tax rates “approaching 90% as they lose benefits attempting to better themselves.”
Readers were incredulous, asking how it could be that in a nation with a top federal income tax rate of 39.6% on individuals making more than $400,000 a year, anyone could face a 90% rate.
It is true. Marginal tax rates, especially for those below the top rate brackets, are chaotic, confusing, and all over the map.
As a result, some of the working poor face extremely high rates on their next dollar earned.
