I too have....

I too have my own business and choke whenever I have to write a check for payroll takes, namely SS and Medicare. As the employer and sole employee, I have to pay both sides of that tax, now over 15%. Basically I'm loaning Uncle Sam the money and he promises to repay it someday but I think he is a poor credit risk and have been thinking about demanding Uncle Sam put-up some collateral such as the federal courthouse in Seattle or perhaps several thousand acres in a nearby national forest.
