US Tax Scam

Problem

Why is the average US household’s 2016 tax bite was $10,489, a whopping 41 percent more than just three years earlier? Americans shelled out just $7,203 for food and $1,803 for clothing on average, a total of just $9,006. Folks that translates to double digits less than taxes paid.
