Cher pays too little tax, wants to give back her Social Security

Is there anyone who believes he or she is paying exactly the right amount of taxes? Take the entertainment world, for example. Kirstie Alley and Jon Lovitz want to know why they’re paying half of their income or more in taxes, while Eva Longoria and now Cher are complaining that they want to pay more.

Cher has a deal to propose.

That’s right: Cher will give back her Social Security if the government can promise the money will go straight back into that lockbox where it belongs. Not that she needed to ask — of course the government would never dip into the Social Security Trust Fund. Of course, if she’s desperate to give away money, there’s always charity. Mitt Romney could suggest a few.

    She can always give it to charity if she feels bad. Better yet she should do her own taxes. It’s a lot harder to file your taxes when you don’t have a personal accountant and attorney finding every available loop hole.

      These people that say they wouldn’t mind paying more taxes could start by filing a 1040EZ and claiming no deductions. If they still feel so badly about it, they can just write a check and pay until their guilt is assuaged.


    She can pay more right now…everyone can. Just send a check to the IRS and tell them to keep it…they will.

    I would pay more too IF I knew it would go to paying down the debt and NOT increased spending…otherwise no dice.

    Paging all benevolent liberals!

    Gifts to the United States may be sent to the Credit Accounting Branch of the Dept. of Treasury!

  • Scott

    Is she gonna cry for the rest of her life if she cant give back the money?
    What a waste of air and space she is.

    • redheadgrl

      And a waste that so many hard-working Americans spent their money on her “entertainment” that made her wealthy.

    Cher- You can always give it to Charity/Chastity or an AddADickToMe charity Thing- or something.

  • Garth Haycock

    I can say with certainty that if the IRS called her on this, she would howl about unfairness and refuse to pay more taxes. She would also cry about not getting Social Security.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism.

    Mitt Romney does not collect his SS or Medicare — he’s stated publicly he doesn’t need it so he has not applied for it. Cher could do the same instead of whining about it on Twitter.

      But,but, then no one would know how humble she is………………….

    I like what John D. Rockefeller, a very rich 19th century American, did with his extra money. He founded a world class university in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago so that years later a mediocre professor from his school could become President and denounce people rich enough to found world class universities.

    • TocksNedlog

      Point made . . . but he’s NOT a professor.

  • HARP2

    Hell…..Skip the middle man Cher and just send it to Egypt.

  • my preciousss!!

    cher, your whining is MUDER to my ears!

  • Just Another Guy

    Yeesh, she can write a freakin’ check! is where you fill out the form.

    Or give it to some worthy cause that she’s passionate about.

  • redheadgrl

    Give it back! It’s called CHARITY. There’s a lot of charities out there that need funding to feed, clothe, and house people in need. GIVE IT BACK, YOU SELF-RIGHTEOUS B****.

    • redheadgrl

      BTW, Salvation Army has 6% overhead. That means 94% of money coming in goes to fill the needs. Want to guess the Government’s overhead for medicare/medcaid? Really? Want to guess? 74%. That means only 26 pennies of every dollar go to help those in the program, 74 cents of every dollar go to bureaucracy. Suck it Cher.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    show biz gets away with MUDER. love me some all cap cher…

  • Right Wired

    If she’s so anti-captialist, then why did she accept $180,000,000 from Caesars Palace?

  • Lin Jarvis

    You’re not required to apply for these entitlements, dodo. And if you want to pay extra taxes, there’s a space for that on your form . You really should talk to your accountant before you tweet something this dumb.

  • Elena0412

    Cher, dear, your tax debt is the suggested minimum. You are free to give ALL your money to the government if you wish, not just the pittance you receive from social security.

  • Angry White Female

    Who TF cares about Cher. Stop giving this beotch air time

  • Marcy Cook

    OH STFU and write a check or stop taking payments or wipe your ass or something.

  • TocksNedlog

    Today’s translation from Cherese to human talk: “Rich people should be required to pay into SSI and Medicare, but should NOT be allowed to sign up for benefits.”

  • Law Abiding Victim

    She could always donate her SS to a charity. But, I suppose that would require a charitable attitude and thinking of someone else for a change. #memememememe

    If Cher really wants to be charitable, she could live on her SS and give EVERYTHING that she has away, and move to a mobilehome on an Indian Reservation in North Dakota.

    Cher turned 65 more than a year ago, but of course she was under no obligation to sign up for Social Security and/or Medicare benefits. Furthermore, a person who has started collecting Social Security benefits is permitted to change their mind and suspend the payments. For every year that an eligible Social Security recipient chooses to defer their benefits, the benefits (once they eventually start) will be significantly larger than if they had started at their earliest possible date.

  • Maria

    How about she takes that money as it comes from SS and donate it to a charity? Lazy woman.
