I was listening to the radio today, and a caller had an interesting idea to temporarily punish the federal government for Cap and Trade as well as other taxes. Her idea was to claim 9 dependents on our taxes to prevent funds from being taken out of our paychecks. This idea peaked my interest, and is a legal way to delay paying taxes.
Please note … I am in no way advocating committing an illegal act, or not paying your taxes. While you can claim 9 dependents to prevent the taxes from being taken out of your check … you still owe that taxes at the end of the year. So don’t go blowing your money. The idea isn’t to get into debt, but to delay the government from getting your money in order to put tremendous financial strain on the federal system.
Ideally this would send a strong message to the government to stop increasing our taxes. But could we really get enough people to do it to make the government feel it? That’s the question. So consider this the official launch of:
Operation Dep 9
Go forth and spread the love.
