This retired fool wonders why the powers that be in our legislatures - both State & Federal - don't offer the citizenry the opportunity and inducement to save/invest by eliminating the tax on earnings up to a given annual sum of, say, $10,000. I believe if people could save, knowing that they would not have to pay taxes on their earnings up to a given "decent" limit, they would be inclined to save more and spend less, thus living below their income. The idea of allowing workers to invest a small portion of their Soc.Sec. taxes does not do enough. What say you fools about petitioning for this or a similar idea???

Why do you say, "Both State & Federal"? My Domicile is in Texas, and Texas doesn't tax my earnings!

Next, since Congress can (by their own rules) be only revenue neutral in tax changes; what do you wished to see taxed by Washington to make up the difference?

But anyway...a novel concept, and that's why we have discussion boards.

You, or any one with earned income above $2000,
can save $2000 before taxes in an IRA. (I know, there
are more caveats.)

An increase in this amount is under consideration.
