"I want to know, how come I pay my taxes on time every year all the time, and even if I'm a little bit short, you always send me a notice to remind me that I'm short or that I never to pay a little more?" the comedian said. "But you never, ever, ever, send me a thank you card or a birthday card." The California resident, who will film a one-hour special for Netflix in 2019, says the IRS takes "nearly 51 percent" of her money. "Can you just say 'thank you,' IRS?

It's just four months until French workers are due to start paying their taxes directly from the income known in French as prelevement a la source.. But in spite of the fact that the date is fast approaching and the change has the backing of the French, with 60 percent in favour, according to recent poll -- it seems it might be delayed again -- or possibly even scrapped altogether. Here's a look at the the new system which would affect 38 million households in France and why Macron might be experiencing cold feet so late in the game. What is the change? The way we pay our income tax in France is supposed to change from us paying it one year late (via a one-off payment or three or ten-monthly payments), to it being taken out of our pay automatically each month as we earn.

Christine MacDonald and Mike Wilkinson The Detroit News Published 10:11 p.m. UTC Jun 13, 2018 Detroit — Nearly half of the owners of Detroit's 305,000 properties failed to pay their tax bills last year, exacerbating a punishing cycle of declining revenues and diminished services for a city in a financial crisis, according to a Detroit News analysis of government records. The News reviewed more than 200,000 pages of tax documents and found that 47 percent of the city's taxable parcels are delinquent on their 2011 bills. Some $246.5 million in taxes and fees went uncollected, about half of which was due Detroit and the rest to other entities, including Wayne County, Detroit Public Schools and the library.

"Why pay taxes?" … [Read more...] about From the archives: Half of Detroit property owners don’t pay taxes
