If you are single and not married, you are required to file tax returns if you make over $10,000 a year in income.

If you are self-employed, you are required to file if you make over $400.

Yea, I was about to tell you that in another thread you put up (about Affordable Care Act). Kudos to you for researching it yourself. So start filing tax returns. Does any tax get withheld by those institutions paying you?

No. None of my online income is deducted for taxes. If I file, I'm likely to have to pay some small taxes.

Is it too late to file for 2013? How do you find someone who can file backtaxes for you?

Can Turbotax do it?

I still don't think the IRS audits you unless you have a lot of money and assets. The odds are very low. What are the odds you are going to be audited from out of 300 million Americans?

Btw, how the f**k am I supposed to do my taxes? I can't even do other shit that I was gonna do long ago! f**k MAN!!!!!!!!!!!! f**k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You gotta understand that I don't have time to do everything I want to do. Everyday Murphy's Law puts new shit in front of me that I have to get out of the way. I'm so angry that I'm willing to cuss and swear at the top of my lungs!

I can't even buy my airplane ticket to get out of Vegas, so how can I find time to file taxes?! I was gonna get my plane tickets yesterday and last week. But stuff and problems keep getting thrown in front of me, and the calendar days continue ticking by. f**k MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm ready to f***ing explode!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON GOD!!!!!!!!!! STOP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUUUUUUCCCCCKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I swear to you, curses and bad luck are REAL! I don't care what Momopi and his left brain Richard Dawkins atheist mentality says. I KNOW THEY ARE REAL! They f**k me up every single day! Just because Momopi disbelieves in it doesn't make it untrue.

Chinese people have believed in curses and bad luck for thousands of years. They still do. Why is Momopi wiser than millions of Chinese people? He isn't. So why doesn't he humble himself? Why won't he consider that maybe he's wrong?

I can give many examples of real curses and bad luck. Bruce Lee's family was definitely cursed, for example. They knew it and they have LOTS OF EVIDENCE of it. LOTS! Momopi can't debunk that. I'll get into that sometime, because it's something that Momopi, Left Brainers, New Agers and Atheists can't explain away.

Americans, New Agers, and Atheists can't accept the reality of curses and bad luck because it's too negative and deals with things out of our control. Americans don't like believing in things out of their control, such as the forces of fate. New Agers don't either. And Atheists do not believe anything exists outside of left brain materialistic science.

But if you look at the evidence for curses, it is there. Denying it, like people like Momopi do, does not change that. He thinks that his Richard Dawkins atheism is the highest level of truth. But it definitely is NOT.
