Excellent point! If

Excellent point! If anything, single people need tax benefits more than married couples do. A single person can work two jobs, but most single people can't make as much money as married people do.

2 incomes vs. 1 income.

Bob is single, makes $37,000 a year and rents an apartment.

Joe and Sue just got married and their combined income is $74,000. Then they have a child and buy a house.

Bob can't afford a house, but Bob pays more taxes than Joe and Sue as a percentage of his income.

That's not fair, and it's not right to penalize people for simply being single.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
