    Sounds like you are one of the small minority that didn’t get a tax cut. Or possibly you did get one but the Dems have conditioned you to think you didn’t #goptaxscam

    Is 35% a "small minority"?

    It's a little hard to draw many useful conclusions from the scant information provided. Mr. Bean, if you want to be taken seriously, please release the last ten years of your tax returns.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    Yep. My state taxes are over the limit so I lost out a bit this year compared to last year. For most people it’s not a difficult subsidy to keep. I could keep it if I had a smaller home or lived in a different neighborhood.

    As a fellow Texan, I'm interested to learn of your state income tax rate or dollar amount. (hint: they are the same, as in zero).

    Yeah, I am very curious about that remark. Moliere is an accountant, right? What are we missing here?

    I am guessing that Moli has a very nice house with a pool.

    Sorry, should have said state and local taxes. Most of what I pay is property taxes to local municipal use and schools. I pay state sales tax which is also part of the $10k limitation.

    Yeah, with the $10K limit I don't have to keep track of my sales tax records... Thanks Drumpf!
