Wealth for Common Good - Make the Rich Pay More Taxes, and It's Tax Deductible!

Tax Preparers Work To Meet Tomorrow's Deadline
Welcome to tax day. My dad always told me to be proud to pay my taxes, but I find it increasingly difficult when I see the abject waste being done with my hard-earned dollars. 2009 was a tough year financially for my wife and me, and the massive amount of money that we sent our government was tough to see go. It is tougher yet to see it wasted.

There's a new group of progressives calling themselves "Wealth for the Common Good" that is asking Congress to repeal the Bush tax cuts so that those in the higher tax brackets can pay more taxes. The group is designed under the auspices of rich people demanding that they pay their "fair share."

Here's a hint to Wealth for the Common Good, or anybody else out there that feel they don't pay enough in taxes: cut a check to the IRS. They'll take it. If you really feel guilty, you can assuage that guilt immediately. The address is 10th St & Pennsylvania Ave, NW Washington, DC 20004.

To take it to a new level, after a little bit of digging, I've found that Wealth for the Common Good is an offshoot of the Institute of Policy Studies, as self-described group putting "ideas into action for Peace, Justice, and the Environment." If you believe in their cause and wish to donate to them, here's their form. You can rest easy as " IPS is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is fully tax-deductible."

Why am I not surprised?

Happy tax day everybody.
