Re: Iraq/tax

Realizing I am coming into the middle of this discussion and have not read
all the emails preceding it and following it... there are 7 states that do
not have income tax, including  WA, WY, TX, FL, NH, one of the Dakotas, I
think, and one more (I don't have my references with me, but I work with
payroll systems).  They fund themselves through property taxes,
"entertainment" taxes, tourism, etc., as I believe was mentioned elsewhere.
The federal govt does not have the right to overrule a state's tax
structure, although certain things cannot contradict the federal regulations
(such as overtime pay calculations and classifications of employees).

Regarding exempting military from the laws of their state of residence
state, well, they would be more successful moving where they live...  one
could argue that people without children should not have to pay for the
schools.  One could also argue that the schools are intended for the benefit
of society, in which we all live, so they should be supported by all,
whether an individual uses the particular service or not.  So, it is perhaps
a hard line for those serving their country, but the schools will still be
there along with the roads and other infrastructure our taxes pay for, when
the servicepeople return to their home addresses.  At least one hopes.
