Taxing us citizens living abroad
Even though the IRS may be just getting back on its feet after the partial government shutdown — with another one potentially in mid-February — don’t assume you can pull a fast one on your tax return this year. Because much of the agency’s systems are automated to spot certain discrepancies, and some parts of tax returns generate more scrunity than others, the risk — albeit low — of hearing from the taxman still remains. And this year, there are more factors at play that could spur attention from the IRS, due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act — which taxpayers are now dealing with for the first time as they prepare their 2018 returns. Most people will never face an audit.

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrats’ new star in the House of Representatives, suggested that the top marginal tax rate on incomes of more than $10 million should be as high as 70 percent, she put the policy of soaking the rich back into contention within her party and beyond. An endorsement from Paul Krugman in the New York Times made it official. She’s talking to “very good economists,” he hears, and in fact the top rate should probably be even higher.

The first is that, despite years of work, economists still don’t know what the “optimal” rate of tax on high incomes should be. The other is that, even if they knew, the finding wouldn’t get us very far. The optimal tax rate for very high incomes, according to the standard way of thinking, is the one that brings in the most revenue. This axiom relies on the idea that the social value of … [Read more...] about Regarding Ocasio-Cortez and ’70 percent’: Economists don’t know what the optimal top tax rate should be
REPUBLICANS TO THE WORLD: WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO? There was a general consensus in the Capitol yesterday: PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP thoroughly embarrassed the United States standing next to Russian President VLADIMIR PUTIN on the world’s biggest stage. SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARK.), a reliable Trump ally, criticized the president -- albeit not by name. REP. WILL HURD, a Texas Republican who was a covert CIA operative before becoming a politician, told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I’ve seen Russian intelligence manipulate many people in my career, and I never thought the U.S. president would be one of them.” SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.), Trump’s golf buddy, even had choice words. Story Continued Below BUT, PRIVATELY, senior-level Republican aides and lawmakers had a second message: WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WANT US TO DO? HOLD HEARINGS? They’ve done that, they say. Nearly every Capitol Hill probe into the 2016 election showed that Putin’s Russia did, … [Read more...] about POLITICO Playbook: GOP to the world: What would you like us to do?
