I just paid income tax.
Part of it was from corporate job, and part of it was from holding and selling Bitcoin in 2017.
And of course I feel morally wronged. What did I do against the society that I’ve got to pay so much for it? The money I oficially had to pay for merely speculative gains are the equivalent of:
- about 250 parking tickets (or littering, or public drinking)
- about 100 average speeding tickets
- 5 strong laptops
- 10 decent laptops
- 10000 cans of average beer
Who the hell invented progressive taxation? You even don’t have to earn a fortune to be fined very heavily. Not even close. I just did well this year.
I didn’t do that well in the previous years, in fact I was quite poor back then. And I cannot calculate that into the cost of previous years good performance.
That’s fucking frustrating. I consider changing the country, cause cryptocurrencies will rise once again (after they end their current decline), and again I will be able to profit. This time I am not willing to be fined that much for it.
