The Washington Post gives space to another silly taxpayer who asks - why do I pay so little?
If you think you're paying too little, decide how much extra you'd like to contribute and send it to Richmond. Or your county seat. Or a favorite charity that helps people in need.
And please send whatever the Post pays you for this column to the state as well.
The state has made its choice about tax rates and deductions for the elderly.
You can choose to pay more. You just can't choose to pay less, unless you like trouble.
