Numbers Don't Lie...Americans do not take advantage of the tax code and vastly overpay their taxes.

Years ago I wrote an article on how we, as Americans, have not fully used the tax code to our advantage.  Warren Buffet once made a joke that was actually true.  He said that he paid less in taxes than his secretary.  Even he is for tax reform, he even admits that it is simply good business to take advantage of every opportunity to lower one's tax burden.
