    of mine for years.

    So many people simply have no idea how marginal tax rates work.

    I remember my uncle mocking his wife for her "little job" because he said it took them just over the lower rate and now - she was actually working for FREE. (He was a real dick)

    Also, one of my sisters insisted she and her husband pay 40%! of their income to taxes. They have 3 dependents and gross income of about $120,000 a year.

    With standard deductions and dependent exemptions they would barely reach 20% tax rate!
