Correct, when you get a raise or a new job you have to make sure your new pay is well over the next tax class or you will end up losing money as you move up.

Taxes do nothing but fleece people to accumulate revenue.

One person who remains a smoker pays for three that quit.

I think the cigarette tax was simply a governmentally sponsored ploy to appear concerned over public health without hurting tobacco growers.

Also - those nasty "cigarillos" are not taxed the same as cigarettes which allowed them to remain a dollar or two a pack. Many smokers just switched over.

Besides, "big tobacco" is just peddling their "cancer sticks" overseas in volumes greater than domestic consumption. AND, $6 pack of Marlboro averages slightly less than $2 a pack in other countries!

It is not discouraging work as much as people begin failing to report tax; laffer curve. Government's then find alternative tax structures with probabilities of success, creating to points on a theoretical laffer point, full success (all taxes from that income collected) and full failure(the agent took full advantage of the government); the slope of which intercepts the cdf of taxes collected multiplied by the theoretical laffer curve (Henry's curve) at a single point that changes with every government tax move(Henry's effect).

Nope. Cigarette taxes are applied to expenditures. Income tax is applied to income. Big difference there.
