They thought the boss would take of them?
Donald Trump has his OWN tax issues….
One way Trump?
Take care of other people?
(Or tell them Congress would?)
The lies ARE always there from dumb assed people to believe….
And some are pissed they actually have to pay up like everyone else who works?
Many of former President Donald Trump’s political appointees got a nasty surprise when they left the government: A big tax bill.
They’ve been ordered to immediately repay months of payroll taxes that had been deferred under a bid by Trump to boost the economy ahead of last year’s elections — levies he had assured them would later be forgiven.
“If the indebtedness is not paid in full within 30 calendar days, we intend to forward this debt to the Department of Treasury, Treasury offset program, for further collection,” reads one letter to a former White House official, demanding she pay $1,500.
That has left some shocked and angry.
One former official called her $1,300 bill “unacceptable,” saying she and her colleagues “gave our time and effort to this agency and this is how we’re getting paid back.”
Said another, asked to pay almost $1,200: “It’s just a very unfortunate situation.”
It’s a little-noticed addendum to Trump’s much-criticized plan last summer to prime the economy.
In August, he issued an executive order allowing employers to put off paying their workers’ share of the 12.4 percent Social Security tax for the rest of the year. The idea was to boost consumer spending by putting more money in the pockets of millions.
But the initiative was widely rejected by private sector employers, in part because they feared workers would be unprepared to pay the money back.
It was mandatory, though, for federal employees making less than $4,000 per biweekly paycheck, and the government began implementing it in September.
Trump said many times he expected Congress to eventually forgive the debts. Lawmakers didn’t do that, though they did agree to give people more time to pay the money back….
