If you filed on April 15th and want to find out how much you saved in your taxes, you can go to FairEconomy.org and take the Tax Fairness Pledge”… something the top 400 of the very rich could effect our whole economy by taking. The top 1% of the country took in 90% of the income gains in 2010, so they’re doing just fine. But lately the folks at the top have not been asked to pay their fair share in taxes.
If these rich folks had paid their fair taxes, what could it have meant? Just how rich are they?:
Even if they only paid ALL of their Income gains above 35% they could cover at least half of all this stuff!
What about you? Are you paying your fair share (or more) of taxes? You can find out HERE by using the calculator, then sign the Tax Fairness Pledge, where you can select necessary areas to contribute excesses to.
