WYOMING \u2013 Tax Day is now looming just one month ahead\u2014Monday, April 15.\r\n\r\nWith Tax Day looming and Americans still figuring out the new tax code, WalletHub today released its\u00a02019 Taxpayer Survey\u00a0as well as its yearly\u00a0Tax Rates by State\u00a0report in order to help people better understand this confusing time of year. You can find highlights from both below, followed by the full list of WalletHub\u2019s 2019 taxpayer resources.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n2019 Taxpayer Survey\r\n\r\n \tFewer than 4 in 10 people are happy with President Trump\u2019s tax reforms. 70% think they benefit the rich more than the middle class.\r\n \t89% of people think the government currently does not spend their tax dollars wisely.\r\n \t31% of people say making a math mistake is their biggest Tax Day fear, edging out not having enough money (28%) at the top of the list.\r\n \t36% of people would move to a different country for a tax-free future; 24% would get an \u201cIRS\u201d tattoo. and 15% would take a vow of celibacy.\r\n\r\nWalletHub\u2019s 2019 Taxpayer Resources\r\n\r\n \tWhat To Do If You Can\u2019t Pay\r\n \tPros & Cons Of Paying With Credit\r\n \tTax Scams & Tips for Avoiding Them\r\n \tLast-Minute Tax Tips\r\n \tProperty Taxes by State\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs Americans file their taxes this year, they have to contend with all the changes from the recent tax reform. But aside from filing frustrations, taxpayers have another reason to be discontent: 9 in 10 voting-age Americans (224 million people) do not believe the government is currently spending their tax dollars wisely, according to a\u00a0new survey\u00a0from the personal-finance website WalletHub.\r\n\r\n\u201cIt\u2019s common that people think a lot of government spending is wasted; this is standard over time too,\u201d said\u00a0William G. Gale, the Arjay and Frances Fearing Miller Chair in Federal Economic Policy at\u00a0The Brookings Institution. \u201cHowever, when asked whether individual programs should be cut, most people say no.\u201d According to Gale, Americans also overestimate how much of their taxes go to categories like foreign aid, which makes up less than 1 percent of the federal budget.\r\n\r\nEven if they are at time misinformed on how their taxes are spent, Americans do have clear preferences about where they\u2019d like that money to go. For example, 75% of WalletHub\u2019s survey respondents said they\u2019d rather pay for healthcare than a border wall. This is significant in light of the recent partial government shutdown (the longest in history), which was sparked by President Trump\u2019s call for border wall funding and congressional Democrats\u2019 opposition.\r\n\r\n\u201cIt\u2019s really important that voters express their position through their votes,\u201d said\u00a0Eric A. Lustig, director of the Center for Business Law at\u00a0New England Law. \u201cThe tax system has never been about paying for what you want and not paying for what you don\u2019t want. That\u2019s a job for the Congress and President. In an early tax case, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said that \u2018taxes are what we pay for a civilized society.\u2019 In fact, these words are chiseled on the exterior of IRS headquarters in Washington.\u201d\r\n\r\nIndividuals can play a part in determining their tax rates by electing like-minded representatives. The 2020 elections are the next big opportunity to do so, and more than 50% of Americans say healthcare will be the biggest issue for them when voting, according to WalletHub\u2019s survey. This \u201ccould bode well for Democrats,\u201d said\u00a0Paul Weinstein Jr., director of the public management master\u2019s program at\u00a0Johns Hopkins University, \u201cif they focus on cost\u2014which is the biggest concern for most Americans\u2014and if the party does not overpromise on coverage.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe tax tables and how taxes are spent will surely change in the future as the government\u2019s political makeup transforms. For now, though, Americans must focus on filing correctly in 2019\u2014an exhausting process for many people. According to WalletHub\u2019s survey, nearly 50% of people would rather serve jury duty than file their taxes.\r\n\r\n\u201cBeing on jury duty can be interesting and get you a few days off work,\u201d said\u00a0Michael Ettlinger, director of the Carsey School of Public Policy at the\u00a0University of New Hampshire. \u201cYou feel you are performing a useful service to your community. Dealing with tax filing is complicated and the consequences of doing it wrong can be substantia\u2014which makes it stressful.\u201d\r\n\r\nWhatever your views on taxes and how they are spent, it\u2019s crucial to\u00a0file on time, even if you can\u2019t pay. In some situations, it may even be a good idea to\u00a0pay with a credit card. And if you want to have an effect on how your tax dollars are used, it\u2019s important to vote for representatives you feel will reflect your views.
