But NOOOOOOOOOOO. Only people that make MORE than they do should pay more taxes.
Many people classify "the rich" by the standard of "somebody that earns more than me". That classification seems to be more common among the liberal folk.

I feel pretty confidant that people opposed to this new tax law that benefit from it will not voluntarily send excess monies retained from their lower taxes to the IRS.

I see where people who paid mortgage tax /property who paid advance will get screwed.
And those companies are laying off.

Yeah, I won't be able to write off any mortgage interest, but that's ok, because I paid off my 30 year mortgage in 20. That saved me over 150k in mortgage interest.

And like a good conservative I have been banking that mortgage payment for that last 5 years since paying it off.

I would say that is much better than writing off mortgage interest.

P.S. Please post a link about the companies that are laying off. We would like to discuss.

Actually not. By paying 2018 property taxes in 2017, they are able to write them off of their 2017 taxes. And being as the standard deduction is doubling, in my case, I would not be itemizing next year anyway. Therefore, I get the benefit of the tax cut in both years.

You may want to go back to 6th grade and refresh your basic math and reading skills.
You also may want to go back and read the link in the OP because your short term memory also seems to be suffering.

Also, there is not such thing as "mortgage tax".

There is no mortgage tax on a train,
There is no mortgage tax on a plane,
There is no mortgage tax on a house,
There is no mortgage tax on a mouse,
There is no mortgage tax on green eggs and ham
There is no mortgage tax saltwn I am.

Commerce bank here in St Louis is one of the most conservative in the nation. By "conservative" I mean they are a tight ship which requires a crowbar to get into their wallets.

They gave $1,000 bonuses out yesterday. Blamed the unusual generosity on the new tax laws.

I have had three clients warn me to be prepared. That their business with us may well double in 2018.

Tuesday morning January 2, 2018 I had no new orders in house. One small job on the lines. Today, we are booked for the entire month of January and February is beginning to fill. I have an order for March 29 delivery that will require one line the whole month. January is usually our slowest month making the first quarter a tough time. First quarter of 2018 looks to be our best first ever.

Unemployment in our county is less than 3% thus making our biggest challenge finding new employees. I'd most like to thank Hilary Clinton and the Democrats for doing such a poor campaign that even a reality TV host could beat her at the polls.

That's great news Franco, be careful not to take on more than you can handle. Make sure you extend your normal lead times even if you know you can do it faster. Better to be a hero and get it done sooner than to not deliver on time.

I'm sure you know these tips.......

I'm in the same boat, and all of the manufactures we buy from have increased their lead times, because the raw material lead times have increased.

I'm being careful not to get too busy to service my contractors that use us exclusively. I'm fortunate that I can raise and lower my bid prices as I see fit, and therefore control my work.

Good luck buddy, I thank Hillary and crew also.
