/m54179 the post office does not think that way. the post office will still believe they need just as many vehicles because of parcel delivery on Saturday and Sunday.

/m54174 Vet, yes of course. My message was directed to the message linked. If no Sat Deivery, PM could order less vehicles. What I was trying to say, you can't just order i e 1000 vehicles instead of 1,250 vehicles, because, the 250 vehicle difference will still be used the rest of the week. Would it save $$$ because of Sat only vehicles? don't know, because the ones they use for Sunday Amazon seem to have problems more often than not. Even then, new vehicles, would still be used 7 days a week.

The point is that fed workers are better than gen public in paying taxes due, so the desire to jail us is not driven by need, but by emotion; namely, hatred of fed workers.

I find it interesting how the discussion was on the firing of federal employees for non payment of taxes and y'all bring up people in the private sector.

Percentage of non-compliance on taxes Feds 4% , Congress 5%, general public 9%. It's a non issue. Busy work from our Congress.

/m54165 Eliminating Sat delivery, would not mean ordering LESS vehicles. Routes have vehicles.that does not change. The only thing that would change with no Sat delivery would be using EACH vehicle ONE less day.

/m54168: wasn't dumping on you. I had, not too much now, xlnt experience with taxes years ago. It's always been the same: underpay taxes, you are subject to penalties, which form used to be a math nightmare. It's an intensive subject and avocation. As X-stew noted, businesses, self employed do this their whole lives. We are a "pay as you go" system and since no one is taking the tax out for Joe the DryWall Guy, he is responsible for doing so himself. Or pay penalties and trust me, that "float" stuff, the IRS figured out a century ago to make interest rates such that only George Soros could keep the dough all year and still make out.

/m54166 Unexpected tax debt happens. Payment plans are the answer, not jail. Not like fed workers are going to up and quit or move out of the country.

/m54168 Nope. Some harm, some fouls. As /m54170 mentions, there are such things as 'quarterlies'. Feds want their money regularly, and normally, if you underestimate too much and too often, they can penalize you.

I'm also aware of that old practice - taking some 15 deductions and having Zero withheld. But I never mess with the 800 lb. Gorilla. I always shoot for a modest Federal refund - between $500 and $1,000 bucks refunded to me. Keeps the surprises away. Also, if you don't have enough withheld for several years, you begin getting Certifieds from IRS, containing Quarterly Payment slips - an "Invitation" to you, to send in more money early. I'm ignorant of how IRS "Flags" people, but to be the constant recipient of such Certs just might Flag you for some eventual attention, such as audits, etc. - I don't like owing them money, not even five bucks.

Will you glommed on to half my point. You knew what I meant but deliberately twisted it. At one time you could claim as many dependents as you wanted to. Have nothing taken from your check. Come April 15 just pay what you owed. No harm No foul. Now if you do not prepay I am not sure of the amount but I believe it is around 90% of what you owe you pay a penalty. So what has happened is some smart employee has nothing taken out thinking he will get the float on the money and pay what he owes come April 15. Well guess what he for whatever reason does not have the money. Rut row. Like a clerk borrowing from his drawer.

/m54166: long-time, former tax preparer here. "Lying" on your W-4 is, as usual here, very wrong. What you request for exemptions is your choice, but you either benefit or lose, based on your own choice or tax knowledge. You can claim 5 exemptions, including your own, if you are single and so choose. You will be fcku'ed at tax time, but it's NOT a crime. They aren't cheats. If I owe $900 in April because I wanted way less taken out for 12 months than my tax reality warranted, how did you lose? I knew a guy who was very smart, had 5 kids, had way more exemptions on W-4 because he calculated: my tax bill will not be a bill, I get way more every 2 weeks. It's a not easy process but those who do it right, gain the benefit.

/m54158 And that is bad because? Federal employees, especially the ones who are paid with the dollars they owe, have money deducted before they get it. If they lie on their W-4 to have less taken out too bad for them. I have no sympathies for tax cheats. Because they do not pay I have to pay more.

RC I do not know. Too many variables. Could also be this has been in the works with the prior PMG. It is pretty clear it is needed. Since they won't all arrive on the same day and be acquired over a period of a few years it really makes no difference. Just say for instance no more delivery on Saturday. The PO would just reduce the number ordered and not yet built. Business decisions like that are made everyday by large companies.
