It’s Tax Day, which, for most Americans, means it’s time to fork over lots of cash to the feds.

Unless you’re running Pfizer, which is paying a grand total of zero dollars and zero cents in taxes this year. In fact, Pfizer is expecting a hefty refund!

"Congress gave the IRS $80 billion dollars to augment their audit functions" said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of Open The Books.com, "And as of last summer, 63% of the new audits targeted taxpayers with incomes less than $200,000."

That is not what they said. Remember this letter for Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen?

"Contrary to the misinformation from opponents of this legislation, small business or households earning $400,000 per year or less will not see an increase in the chances that they are audited," Yellen penned in a letter to IRS commissioner Charles Rettig, in 2022.

Biden’s written plan calls for a small business tax hike, a corporate tax hike, a capital gains and dividends tax hike, income tax hikes, energy tax hikes and even a second Death Tax on top of the first one.

Biden would increase the corporate income tax from today’s 21% to 28%. That’s a higher tax rate than communist China and France and the U.K., each at 25%.

The average U.S. taxpayer was forced to contribute more to militarized programs than to Medicare and Medicaid combined in 2023, according to a new analysis released Tuesday by the National Priorities Project.

Published ahead of Tax Day, the analysis sheds light on the extent to which the federal income tax dollars of ordinary Americans are fueling "militarism and its support systems" such as the Pentagon, which currently accounts for roughly half of the federal government's total discretionary budget.

Mayor Eric Adams keeps blaming Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as the culprit responsible for the city’s migrant crisis, which has hoovered up millions in taxpayer resources.

In the latest broadside, Adams dared Abbott to spend a night in a NYC migrant shelter, while the no-thanks Abbot fired back that Adams’s sanctuary city policies were “aiding and abetting” the border disaster.

Some 37,000 of New York’s estimated 150,000 migrants — or 25% — were bused from Texas.

But there’s another number, comparable to that, that Adams should blame on another politician: Joe Biden.

President Joe Biden insisted that giving the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion and hiring 87,000 new agents would be all about targeting the wealthy, not the middle class. Unsurprisingly, it turns out his new bulked-up IRS is the same as it always was.
