COMMENTARY: Is there no end to the avarice and incompetence of this Connecticut state government? They already tax us for the income we earn [not all states do that]. Then the state taxes us when we buy a car; charges us a registration tax to operate the car; charges us a property tax on the value of the car [not all states do that]; charges us taxes when we buy gas for the car, tires, pay for repairs and on and on. Connecticut residents are already the most highly taxed people in the United States. We worked on average to the 21st of May in 2016 to pay for our tax burden…every other state is done before that…every other state, except MA, NJ, and NY is done with their tax burden by the end of April. How long are we going to put up with these elected idiots?
Sorry. I know this comment is out of context, but I get fed up with these inept, stupid, greedy clowns.
