Sorry. I have done a poor job of articulating my beef.GeddyWrox wrote: So your beef is with traveling, and not taxes? I'm confused.
I have a full time job. I also moonlight at a prison treating mentally ill inmates, two hours from my house. If I work enough shifts, my moonlighting income would put me in a higher tax bracket.
I must weigh the extra income that I make, which can be taxed at a higher rate, against the increased expenditures on gas, wear and tear on my car, decreased time at home to do house maintenance etc, and eventual childcare.
It may come to a point when my decreased take home income (because of an increased tax rate) plus increased expenditures due to my travel may equate to me deciding that it would make sense to not pick up those shifts.
It is my personal belief that everyone should be taxed the same rate, regardless of how much one makes.
