CITY HALL REMINDER DEMAND: HAVE YOU PAID YOUR KANSAS CITY EARNING TAX?!?!



Information and nagging from the crew & 12th and Oak as we slouch toward tax time.

Take a look at yet another indication that tax collecting is the main concern of the government while the demand for "services" grows louder:

Have you paid your KCMO Earnings Tax?

The earnings tax (sometimes referred to as “e-tax”) is a one percent tax on an individual’s earned income such as salaries, wages, commissions, tips and other compensation. The due date for paying this year’s e-tax is April 18. You can file online.

The earnings tax generates revenue that pays for a wide variety of basic City services used by all those who live and work in Kansas City, Missouri. In addition to helping fund basic city services such as repairing roads and weekly trash collection, the revenue from the earnings tax also pays for police officers, fire fighters, paramedics and ambulance services.

And they still won't make the up the difference to pay police.

This is not a good sign from Sly & company.

How much more money should we pay to public safety for police and fire?? And what are we getting in return for that money?? 430 if we just have police and fire the entire city budget would that be enough for you?

Nope. Because I won't live nor work in KCMO.

Wouldn't a tax revolt be fun?

Sly's base of non-critical thinking zombies, easily manipulated by emotional appeals and false story lines must be all starry eyed with this.

What can the KCMO City do if a Kansas resident, working in KCMO, refuses to pay?

Haven't paid it, ain't gonna pay it. I want to be a test case. Come get me KC.

Wow. I stumbled onto the largest collection of ultra badass rebels on this site. Lots of tough talk here about sticking it to the man and not paying taxes. The bravery, the gusto. The internet keyboard warrior army is ready!

Good luck brave warriors. Not since D Day have people demonstrated such courage. Not since the moon landings have such inspired visions filled the country.

True patriotism, despite being scofflaws and leeches. But brave leeches.

Actually if you don't pay the tax the city will take you to court. On your day in court there will be about 200 cases, with about 195 not showing. You sit there all day long waiting for your case while the attorneys on the other side are granted the priviledge of showing up at their appointed time. After sitting all day waiting for your call they will schedule another court date to actually hear the case. Of the 195 who don't show the city will get a default judgement and will try to collect just like any other creditor.

So the system is rigged against you if you try to fight. But if it's any consolation just think that Burns & Mac, &R Block, Cerner, CBIZ and dozens of other companies really need the money more than you.
