SG: 55% of part??? Hey. They also paid 0% on part. And since they actually earned 0% of all, I think they must have been pretty lucky.

This is like when the teabaggers claim their income tax rate is what their marginal rate is. They don't understand taxes but that doesn't stop them from whining.


55%? Strange. When my parents died, their estate paid no tax whatsoever. Wonder how that came to be?
