SWP, I admit I was wrong in my understanding of the tax............. is that clear enough. FF, your correct that we may pay a bit less but the first of the year is still to come & the two after that all bring with them more tax & fee hikes.

I think you misunderstood again. I wasn't ragging on you. There are several people on this forum that don't understand how this stuff actually works. They've been brainwashed into thinking that all corporations are bad and should be taxed out of existence or that businesses are there just to provide jobs for people and nothing more.

SWP, the only Corp. I talked about was oil & that is pretty much in line was gasoline, it was the creative ways our State Gov. tried to get around being able to say he made no new taxes. I don't care what they want to call it if it comes out of my pocket it's a tax, if it goes places I don't benefit from it's worse. ;)

Whomever is collecting or setting the amount of taxation, it seems some of it gets diverted to somebody somewhere. Whether you see it or not. Paul Mulshine's editorial in today's Star Ledger points out NJ's issue. In NJ's case past govs borrowed so much, including our current Gov. Christie's 3 billion, to keep money in the transportation till that 37.3% - 14¢ - of the new 37.5¢ total goes to pay the debt. More than a third of what we're going to pay is already gone! So it seems we're only adding 23.5¢/ gal to the transportation fund. Crazy IMHO to borrow long term debt and pass it through to the future.
