Taxes, Taxes, Taxes

From the Llamabutchers, we learn of what it's like to pay taxes in Virginia.  Apparently it is much, much better than it is here in Ohio. Blogger Robert describes how he:

1.  Mailed his return two weeks ago.

2.  Already has his refund check.

3.  Received, along with said check, an explanation from the Commonwealth of Virginia explaining that if he'd filed differently (married filing jointly v. married filing separately), he would have received a bigger refund.

4.  Further explaining that the Commonwealth has gone ahead and recalculated the amount, and added the extra funds to the enclosed check.

Can anyone imagine any of this happening in Ohio? 


Damn....Ive never heard of a such thing. Maybe Strickland will take a cue from his Democratic counterparts in VA and do it this way......or not

Dream on Buckeye faithful. Ohio's approach is to reduce to 120 days per year that you can be here and not be taxed. This is their attempt to capture revenue from those old people who flee to FL to avoid our high taxes. I think the Ohio Legislature should take a lead from the a wall around the state and not let anyone leave. That would keep those old rich people here and quite possibly lead to lower taxes for all of us.
