So Philly has a 5% City Wage Tax. That's equivalent to, if not more than, most state income tax rates. I switched jobs in May of last year and for some reason my new employer didn't take any wage tax out of my check. No one can explain why, this office has been open for decades and they took wage tax out for everyone else in the office. Direct deposit is mandatory and we have to log in to our HR website if we want to view our pay stubs, so I never picked up on it. So I have to pay the City of Philadelphia 5% of my gross income from May of last year until today in one lump sum.

I don't know what the labor laws are in your state, but the employer is probably liable for some degree of responsibility. We had a similar situation where I work a few years ago, the employer was taking out too little of a mandatory deduction, and when they came out and said we owed it, we fought back (though it was fought through the union). The end result was that the employer paid the lump sum and then took it out of our checks a bit at a time. We paid what we owed, but because the error was theirs and not ours, they had to come up with the lump sum payment and we weren't burdened with it, only having to pay added affordable monthly deductions until it was paid off.

I'm in the same boat here in Kansas City. We have a 3% earnings tax. As an employee it is your responsibility to make sure it is being taken out of your check (at least here anyway). As an employer I save my employees the trouble and just set it up when I run their first payroll. You get nailed here even if you just work in Kansas City. You could live in Kansas (Olathe, Lenexa, Overland Park...what have you) and still have to pay Kansas City MO 3% if you have the pleasure of working on this side of the state line. It blows. But, my trash and recycling pickup are covered in that 3%, so it's not a bad tradeoff.

Sorry to hear that. I've had a similar thing happen to me. I moved from Houston which doesn't hold back state tax, to Alabama, which does. My employer never made the switch and I went a year without knowing they weren't taking that tax out. I got dinged by aout $5k, but my employer (friend and small company) paid half, which was more than fair.

I hope it doesn't put too much of a pinch on ya.

Funny you mention trash and recycling, Philly also just bumped my property tax assessment by 300% (in an effort to bring assessments in line with actual value) which resulted in a 72% tax increase.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that this is my fair share, I'm just not all that happy about having to pay it right now.

Just for the record, I am only venting my frustration. I have the money to cover the check (its actually going to be less than I'll be getting back from my Federal return), so if any of you dumb bastards is thinking bombing me - stop it, just stop. I don't need any of your damn tobacco kindnesses.

Typical bureaucratic fumbling; my, I can think of no more better gift than a pipe bomb--planted in their offices, after hours of course. I got pulled over the other day and in the course of discussing matters with the officer was told that NCDMV said my registration had expired, but my documentation and the actual tag showed that it hadn't. He didn't choose to pursue this, especially given my outraged diatribe about those agencies. The problem was that I switched title and tag last summer to IL, and the bastards never got all that right despite many hours of attempted error correction by yours truly.

Motherfucking classless, spineless, idiots! The left hand doesn't know nor care what the right hand is doing, and neither will actually own a task and peruse it to completion. They just make their inane excuses, and as soon as their ass clears, bow out.

I expressed myself about this fully to the officer.

Easy there, Alfie.

Meanwhile, Dave, who the heck softened you up enough to acknowledge all of these tax increases to have you boil it down to "your fair share?" Laughing Everyone gets to pay taxes, especially for the things we communally use, but the "fair" and "share" part seem to be always be someone's answers to defeatism, confusion and convenient acceptance. It's only when situations like this pop up, where instead of bloodletting it they take a pound of flesh it's really noticed. Laughing I feel for ya, brother, I do...

...I dunno. No city taxes here, no state taxes, so it's a different universe. The world hasn't collapsed around us for having a simplified, clear system. Nothing seems to improve with more taxes or less taxes, so I don't have the answer. I would like people to keep their hands out of my effing wallet, that'd be nice.

Cool

STFU Comrade Kyle. Our Brother Dave is a valuable member of the Mother Country and a proud citizen of The City of Brotherly Love. It is well that he cares enough to contribute his fair share to the crown jewel of western society and the proper and right capital of the USSA.

Sorry to hear Dave, Also here where I live in western Pa the wage tax is only 1% , but I don't live in a major city just a little suburb, they did change something about the wage tax around here but I cant remember what it was, I know at one time my company never took mine out and they wouldn't upon request either, but I think the county my company is in changed some law so they have to take every ones out now

They are slightly less fit than the average Citizen Soldiers of the Glorious Revolution Comrade Keenum, but they have good heart and desire to battle the evil Capitalist.. Who are we to turn such men down?

In prison, where there's not much to do beside lift weights, you'd be surprised.

I have been. As of March 13 ! cheers cheers cheers

I was drawing on memory for that.

If you haven't see it, it probably seems unlikely.

But in the right set of circumstances, it's as real as it gets.
