no, the marriage penalty is a hoax
single people pay tax at a higher rate than married people do
half of married couples (where one earns alot more than the other) actually get even more of a break the way things are now
instead of complicating the tax code with even more special breaks we should simplify it with just two filing statuses "family household" where all adults and children put all their income and deductions together or "adult citizen" where only one adult has her/his income and deductions only and whichever is the better result in net comparison is allowed.

The marriage Penalty is not a hoax.  I am a married person, 8 years, at the end of my rope.  I refuse to pay the government any more money simply because I am married without children. It makes me understand why people cheat on their taxes.  My husband and I will divorce, on paper, to avoid this in the future. I work very hard all year, we both claim ZERO and we both still owe. Yet according to the democrats, we are rich.  If so, why is it that I live paycheck to paycheck?  Why is it that I never seem to have any money?
This will change when I reverse the governmental mistake of 8 years ago by saying I DO.  If a democrat, who claims I am rich, would like to trade me spots, pay my bills, work 60 + hours a week to only be gourged paycheck after paycheck and then a giant tax bill at the end of the year, I challenge that democrat to come on over and practice what he likes to preach.

If you make more than $90,000, you are rich according to the Democrats.

Yet they live paycheck to paycheck. The highest paid police officer in the country makes 80,000, and he is just getting by.

[color=navy][i][/b]I do not agree with the marriage tax.  This tax was made in the 1950's when usually one person worked.  Today, most married couples work.  Also, and the main reason I do not like this tax, is because more and more couples live together which in ONE HOUSEHOLD, but they are on tax paper SINGLE...WHAT IS FAIR ABOUT THAT?

Yes, I think the marriage penalty should be eliminated.  I also think the singles penalty should be eliminated.  Singles penalty you say?  It's also known as the marriage bonus.  More couples enjoy this than suffer the marriage penalty.  
I work hard at a job I hate and go to school so I can find a better one.  I pay for that & ALL my living expenses myself.  No spouse to "split" anything with -- just haven't found the right person yet.  And for that I get to pay an extra $1200 every year in taxes.  I want to keep as much of my money as someone who makes what I do & but keeps more because he/she is married.  
One person, one income tax return.  ProblemS solved.
