CORRECTION: I think I'm mistaken about Social Security. From those in the know, I was told that you don't get taxed on SS benefits. That's good to know.
We get taxed enough as it is. Feds tax us to death .. literally. You pay Social Security, then get taxed on benefits. Talk about double taxation. You even pay taxes on unemployment benefits and disability beni's. Why the hell is that! You don't have a job, and you still have to pay taxes. If it weren't for hurricanes, I'd seriously think about moving to the Cayman Islands where there are no income taxes. Of course, one would want to check out the caveats of living there. It can't be all that bad. Hmm .. research.
