"When in doubt always look at your personal situation."
I totally agree with that. That's what Warren Buffett did, and found that he is paying a lower tax rate than his receptionist. That's what he is inviting every Forbes 400 CEO to do.
Also, it's important to recognize how federal tax cuts influence local tax burdens. The federal government gives funding to local governments in a number of ways through different programs. If federal tax cuts require cuts to those programs, the local government will have to recoup that money some other way to offer the same services. They may decide to create a garbage fee. So an income tax cut primarily for the wealthy becomes a local tax hike for everybody. The person making $20,000 pays $66 a year and the person paying $200,000 pays $66 a year. That is the shifting of the tax burden that Buffett is talking about. Of course the wealthy pay more in actual dollars - he is talking about percentage of income.
Of course, this is a hypothetical argument without any evidence. It would be interesting to see if it is true by looking to see if Toledo has lost significant federal funding. I don't know, and I'm not going to research that right now.
