They say the only certainties in life are death and taxes, and for many, it’s actually the latter that’s far more distressing. More than 50% of Americans feel the amount of taxes they’re forced to pay each year is too high, and almost half of Americans agree that when it comes to taxes, the middle class gets a raw deal. It’s no wonder, then, that so many people make lowering their taxes a top priority.
