Former National Journal Tech Daily editor Danny Glover (no, not the actor) will be blogging to keep track of every single cent his family pays in taxes for 2008. I have a feeling many people will be shocked. I usually pay attention to how much tax I pay on everything, including hidden taxes such as those built into the price gasoline, cigarettes, liquor, etc., and it always, always pisses me off.I haven’t kept track of my tax expenditures in a written form, so I find this to be an interesting experiment sure to open the eyes of many.
The average person pays a lot more in hidden taxes, I suspect, than they do in income taxes. It will be interesting to see if my theory is true. Here is the description of the blog in question:
How much do you really pay in taxes? If you knew, you might get angry. You should — and I hope this blog will get you riled. For the next year, I’ll be blogging about the taxes our family pays so you can appreciate how much you pay.
