According to a 2009 study from the Institution on Taxation and Economic Policy, the poor pay a higher percentage of their income in taxes than the wealthy in every state except for Vermont. In Alabama, families making less than $13,000 a year pay almost 11 percent of their income in state and local taxes, compared with less than 4 percent for those who make $229,000 or more, the report said.

Poor people don't pay taxes. They actually take tax money from the middle class man.LOL SO get your facts straight. If they even work, they get all kinds of government help, plus all kinds of tax breaks that the middle class can't get. As such if they even file an return they get more back than they paid in.

Most "working poor" or lower middle class around here pay $1000 in taxes and get $6000 back. So in effect, they aren't paying any federal income taxes. The rich are paying the taxes.

That is considered middle class.I don't care what the polticans say, 100000 or plus in my book is rich, not middle class. You did not get more back than you paid in. Just like I don't either. But you don't get any government help either do you? SUch as foodstamps, linheap, medical card. I also bet you don't have kids either living at home that you can claim as tax deductibles.

They are not going to have to pay for thier obamacare. It will be business as usual for them. What are you talking about man? If anything they will get better care than those that are middle class. They are the ones going to get screwed as usual.

tell Speaker Boehner: Pass middle class tax cuts now!

Time is quickly running out to avert the fiscal cliff and prevent taxes from rising $2,200 per year for middle class Americans. The Senate has already passed a bill that cuts taxes for 98 percent of Americans.

Now it's up to House Republicans and Speaker John Boehner to send it to the President's desk.

Use the form on this page to urge House Speaker John Boehner to immediately pass the middle-class tax cut bill so that President Obama can sign it as soon as possible!

You are wrong. If a family makes 13K or less they don't pay any taxes! After the personal exemptions and standard deduction a family has zero tax liability. Actually if a family makes that much money they get refundable credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit and get money refunded back to them without having to pay one penny in income tax.

The credits (give away money) dramatically offset any state or local taxes the family member working may pay. Guess who is paying these taxes? Not the poor people, its the middle income and higher income people. Poor people should be glad the middle and higher income people are out working their tails off to take care of them!
