Indians own Bardstown
tax poor

Louisville, KY

#1 Jan 9, 2013
This is a question for Kevin Brumley, Dean Watts, Mayor Sheckles or any council member. We heard that Indians own several of the minit marts including Thompson's by Arby's and now a few fast food restaurants. Since these people do not pay any type of taxes, what happens to the revenue in this town? Every year the school taxes raise, so their multiple kids go to school for free too? No, I will not be shopping, eating or buying gas from any Indian owned stores. I'll be at Newcombs or Murphys, at least the American owned store may be profiting, but they also have to suffer Bardstown already high priced taxes the same as me.

I'm not a racist. If these people payed taxes I would shop the stores and anyone who opens a business in the US should pay taxes from the first day just like a US citizen. US citizens are the ones discriminated against! Me and my wife work a lot of hours a week in a factory we never got a five year tax break!

They pay no taxes? Really? You honestly expect people to believe they can operate a business and that business pays no taxes?
How are you in a position to know this? You have seen their books?
Why are you not pointing out the case of illegal Mexicans?
I've got news for you - the factories in town get tax breaks. Sykes was given an incentive as well.
I don't hear anyone complaining about that.
The fact is you don't like it that they are from another country, plain and simple.
I applaud someone willing to work the long hours it takes to operate these places. They don't get paid time off. I'd like to see you put in a 70 hour work week, with no lunch hours, no paid holidays off.

They also own the store in Cox's Creek. I don't go there. Been there maybe 4 times in a year. I will drive all the way back to town to get my stuff.

Black kids beating up an older white man, and now a white person starting stuff about Indians? What is Bardstown coming too?
I highly doubt they don't pay taxes. And on top of all that, if you don't like Indians, or foreigners for that matter, you may as well never buy anything from the store again. How much of the everyday stuff you use, do you think is made in America?
I am as white as printer paper, but damn, I hate racist, ignorant people.

If you anyone is in doubt about these people not paying taxes, then you are ignorant to your government. This has nothing to do with being racist. All immigrants are entitled to tax free for so many years, possibly five to twelve years of starting or buying a business also they can get lower interst loans then any US citizen can. Legal immigrants who are hired in factories do not have taxes taken out of their check for a number of years. At least they don't in our factory. I asked this question becuase if these people are buying so many businesses in this town, then who do you think is going to make up the tax revenue that is lost YOU and any white black orange or purple legally born US citizen. This is our government fault not the people. Your making this racist and about fighting the elderly which is ridiculous and off topic. If you work and pay taxes don't you think that if you come to america to start a business or work in any business that these people should be treated like any other US citizen from the start and pay taxes will they don't. So you will be paying your share and theirs! thats it. Hell I'd like to be tax free for a few years wouldn't you?

You and CPA are right. Foreigners get no tax breaks that are not available to anyone starting a business. I should know, I started my taxidermy business with incentives.
I challenge any of these people who claim they pay no taxes to prove it.
