A lot of people complain about how unfair the tax system is.  While that may be true, we are stuck dealing with it (at least until someone comes up with something better and can push it through the system).  There have been several articles recently, including this one on cnn.com about millionaires who do not pay taxes.  As the article explains, some of that may be due to the circumstances surrounding their income.  Other pieces of that may be because they have learned to be proactive about their taxes over the year.  My summary message today is learn to be proactive about your taxes or else don't complain that you are paying too much in taxes.  Tax planning is one way to go.
