It's Bush's and the Republicans's fault. They raised your taxes so the evil rich could make pay less taxes and make more money at our expanse. =)

The "evil rich" are the builders & investors & donators & job providers. What about all the people that are in our jails getting better meals, cable, work out rooms than many tax payers have? What about the moochers who could work, but don't on welfare? Don't blame people in one social class for taxes! There are many, many factors... why my deserving parents cannot retire who have busted their rumps into their late years!

I wouldn't be surprised if you and others actually believe that.

M says " don't blame people in one social class" and then does so...

It's not one parties fault. Or one economic class's fault. I just wanted to be a smart $&!.

You had more income subject to taxes this year and or fewer deductions or exemptions. If you didn't pay taxes last year and none of those things changed then you wouldn't owe income tax this year. Tax rates did not increase in your tax bracket. Also you may not have had enough withheld from your paycheck this year.
What I said refers to your Income Tax and not to the payroll tax for Soc security which increased for the 2012 tax year from the previous 4.2% to 6.2%.

Income changed, deductions/exemptions changed, you did the math wrong, etc. there has been no federal tax increase for people making less than $400,000.00 a year.
Social Security returned to its normal 6.2% after the admin gave us a 2 year break of 4% but that's it.
