I am actually doing pretty well, and my taxes are 10% after state, city, county. I'm really looking for solutions to taxation though, something I can pitch to the city or state. I designed this shop to be able to survive even a dollar crash, which is another reason I bought the building. Provided they don't annex my shop for government use I can always find some business to run out of it.
Also that 10% could be wages or expansion, saved up even another business, which is why I'm against taxation, it's literally removing jobs that could otherwise be there. Donations should come from private citizens not from the business sector.
