    Palm Beach has become known as a haven for transplants seeking tax relief, especially those from high-end towns in states that levy both a state income tax and an estate tax — California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts, to name a few.
    But even so, the island’s property tax bills are still loaded with digits that would qualify as big bucks in just about anyone’s estimation, thanks to the home and land values set annually by the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s office.

    He came in number 22 in the top 30 taxpayers in the town.

    $517,112. Market value of his house is $44 million.

    I just can't imagine how much it hurts the old pelican to make that payment. His shrink is earning every penny he charges just to keep the wig from committing suicide.

    Property taxes are tax deductible so the more he pays the more he will save in federal
    income tax.

    Whoah! I guess when you have so much money, then it doesn't matter, but I just don't understand buying such an obscenely priced (and taxed) house.

    And how in the world can you ask listeners to pay $25 for a shitty calendar when you spend $500k on property taxes for a home you might have not even spent a full night in?

    It's almost as if this is just one giant prank.

    it is a buyers' market, consequently, prices are depressed, and homes are being sold at less than market value. howard also inflated his contract with siri by 150 million dollars...he's in a pissing match with rush limbo

    I always love it when people who pay no real income tax start spouting off about how PAYING taxes saves you money.

    the amount of tax one pays has no relevance to knowledge of tax code

    Sure, that's like saying people who don't drive cars know as much about traffic as people who do drive cars.

    Someone who claims that paying one tax "saves money" on paying a different tax is someone who pays no tax. What the fuck difference does it make where you mail your check? Tax is tax.

    And Howie will feel the pain of that $500,000 per year once his income disappears. I see Stern as having very little residual income once his radio show ends.

    Think of all the kittens that could save!

    No wonder Wiggo and Oats have sick kittens. They couldn't afford the cost of bleach to clean the kittens areas.

    Gotta save somewhere!

    no. thats like saying someone who hires someone else to drive them while sitting in the back of a limo knows anything about traffic.
    the vast majorly of people who pay a lot of taxes, hire an expert to do their taxes.
    if gary the retard hit the lottery he wouldnt magically know more than u


    no one knows what shenanigans howard is up to. maybe his corp buys property and he writes off the lease payments he makes to himself

    No kidding. I love hearing that mess. "Well, it's deductible so you're okay!"

    Put it this way: Say you have a deductible expense of $100. That deduction will excuse $100 of your income from being taxed. Let's say the tax on $100 of income is 25% - $25.

    So, you save $25. You're still out $75.

    Deductions defray costs. That's about it.

    You clearly don't pay taxes.

    "Write off" is not a term which magically makes your tax obligation disappear.

    Yes, Howard's companies own his assets, and that's so for a variety of reasons. But paying less in tax is still paying tax.

    My side business ends up paying roughly 40% in taxes but it's still MY MONEY which gets lost.

    there are wackpackers who pay more tax than u, that doesnt mean they know more than u
    if u paid no taxes next year, your tax knowledge wouldnt disappear. u seem like a smart guy who understood taxes even before u did well.
    people are wrong because they are wrong. not because of how much tax, if any, they pay. most cpas are not very wealthy.

    i never said anyones tax obligation disappeared. but couldnt a smart property investment be close to tax neutral?
    i bet howard pays less much less % than u, and i highly doubt he knows anything about it
