You have a family or are you single.  I just had my tax man do a pre
tax determination. He doesn't need my w2 to figure it. Thanks to trump
and his lies anyone who is single and has no children or anyone to claim
is going to get taken to the cleaners. All the deductions I was taking
for years out here for legitimate expenses have been wiped out along
with other deductions away from work. I have been getting a 5-6000 tax
return every year for as long as I can remember. Im going to get a
whopping 1300 bucks. So many people fell for the crooks bull crap
stories. The single middle class railroader with no children are
getting burned and burned bad. The stupid 24 bucks they give you for
meals is a stinking joke. It cost 7 bucks for a  whopper meal and I
wont eat a whopper meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You got a good
job and freedom then keep it. Don't come out here and spend thousands a
year on union dues, out of insurance, safety equipment, meals etc. just
to be told that you cant claim them anymore. It isn't worth it. I was
counting on that return. that was a big chunk of money lost. Keep your
freedom. Stay away from the railroad.
