1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return for 2017 for Folks Who Insist Donald Trump is Not Their President

For all of those good folks that think President Obama's $40 payroll tax cut was wonderful, but President Trump's overhaul of the tax system to really increase deductions for the middle class are chump change and a give away to corporations, the new alternate 1040 federal tax form is now out for your usage.  The particularly relevant part is highlighted by the red arrow.  Cheers!

H/T: To friend T.T.

TP, Before trying to be funny, perhaps you should get your facts lined up first. The new tax rates do not apply to 2017 income. They took effect on Jan 1this year.

You can publish this post again next year. It will be more meaningful then. Just don’t forget to change 2017 to 2018.

Killjoy! :)

Jerry Critter, of course you are correct. The new tax reform will not be reflected until 2018. Thanks for killing my joke, sir. lol!

Watching SOTU Democrats do not applaud the news that black and Hispanic unemployment rates have dropped to the lowest number on record.

Says a load about how much they really care about minorities. Their fear is if they have jobs they will not need the left.

Hi Jerry!!

Do you think you should take down the post on your blog claiming that Lowering Corporate Tax Rates do not Create Jobs?

Just saying!

1 - Isn't it weird that in America, our flag and our culture offended so many people, but our benefits don't?
2 - How can the Federal Government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans, when illegal aliens are receiving a free education?
3 - Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis", but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers".
4 - Libs say, "If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it's worth it". Well, then, if deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn't that be worth it?
5 - I can't quite figure out how you can proudly wave the flag of another country, but consider it punishment to be sent back there.
6 - The Constitution: It doesn't need to be rewritten, it needs to be reread.
7 - William F. Buckly said: "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other points of view, and are then shocked and offended when they discover there ARE other points of view".
8 - Joseph Sobran said: "'Need' now means wanting someone else's money. 'Greed' means wanting to keep your own. 'Compassion' is when a politician arranges the transfer

You got me. I know I'm taking this non-sequitor bait you C&Ped from one of dozens of right-wing blogs/sites I've seen all over the 'net. I can't help myself. Good job.

1: It's weird that you bring this up, because this isn't a thing.
2: Paying back a loan you agreed to pay back when you took on the debt has nothing to do with immigration.
3: People brought to the United States against their will as children have colloquially been given the nickname "Dreamer" for political purposes. People who are referred to as Nazis and Racists are referred to as such not because of their legal status in the United States.
4: No one says this. This is a Rightwing Strawman.
5: This is nonsensicle.
6: ...Okay?
7: The actual quote is: "Though liberals do a great deal of talking about hearing other points of view, it sometimes shocks them to learn that there are other points of view."

Here's another one for you: "Conservatives pride themselves on resisting change, which is as it should be. But intelligent deference to tradition and stability can evolve into intellectual sloth and moral fanaticism, as when conservatives simply decline to look up from dogma because the effort to raise their heads and reconsider is too great."

8: Interesting how whoever originated this odd list of random gibberish would include #3 in this list and then end the list with a quote by an actual anti-semite who was fired by the guy quoted in #7 of this list for being an anti-semite. I bet he was an American Citizen, which just goes to reinforce #3.

"Conservatives pride themselves on resisting bad change or change for change'a sake, is what you meant to say. I'm sure.

Mr. Paine,

This is a link to the best article on events and the impact surrounding the release of the 4 page memo I've seen.

This makes Nixon look like as Boy Scout,

The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign paid for a
pile of inflammatory rumors about Trump, which it then sold to the
press. The FBI—in full knowledge of this—then took the press reports to a
court as “evidence” to obtain permission to surveil the Trump campaign.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is about to release his report on Steele, the FBI, and the dossier.

The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General is about to release his report on the FBI and DOJ handling of the Clinton investigation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has referred the allegations about the DOJ and FBI officials to the Inspector General for further investigation.

This should be interesting.
