Could you help a gal find a better equation
for lowered middle income tax calculation?
I've got many creative business plans
way better than collecting aluminum cans.
Could I get the name of your money man?
Of his abilities, I am a big fan.
I make enough to get taxed quite high.
Perhaps he could help me figure out why.
If my boss sent our paychecks through
an offshore fund we invested in with you,
do you think that we could avoid
those deductions that leave us annoyed?
(If you promise to have my back
when other citizens say I'm whack
for still expecting Social Security,
then I will consider voting for thee.)
I also have side jobs and work as a writer...
Is there a way that income could be taxed a bit lighter?
If I get paid in gold coins, will anyone know?
What do you do with yours so that they don't show?
I would really appreciate any help you can give.
I'm just a creative scrapper trying to live.
I write, make candles, work weddings and
have a full time job in this fine, free land.
I deserve to keep most of my income, like you.
I won't start my next venture until you tell me what to do.
Perhaps you have a special fund that I could 'work for'?
I await your ideas and more. Sorry if this letter was a bore.
May taxation remain crooked until I build my pile!
